Safer Fuel Cell Powered Automobiles

While an electric vehicle may go 200 or 250 miles without a charge a combination of fuel cell and fuel together with a balance of system could travel 500 or even 800 miles depending upon the specific requirements and design.

Powering Towards Renewable Energy

Corrective measures reinvigorate India's renewable energy sector

Is Biomass Heating Really Carbon Friendly?

For people who use coal or oil for heating, switching to biomass will certainly reduce carbon emissions as long as there is a program in place for sustainable management of the resource.

Look, Ma… No Wires!

There are an estimated 43 million street lights in the USA and at least 55 million parking lot and parkway lights. Since they combine to use about 10% of all the electricity consumed in the USA, taking them to LED is a step in the right direction but going all the way to zero energy use is even better.

Solar Plant in Cernay Powers Up With DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions

System optimized for maximum power output and lifetime with DuPont™ Tedlar® polyvinyl fluoride filmbased backsheets and DuPont™ Solamet® photovoltaic metallization pastes

Powerful approaches to energy conservation

Innovative Ontario companies find energy savings in places they'd least expect

Rethinking Solar Farms for the 21st Century: Tapping Ocean Space

An example is in a brave venture in India where a 10 kW prototype floating solar generation facility is being developed for placement in a pond. Pilot projects of this nature have also started to take shape in countries like Japan, France and Australia.

Wind Energy in Oklahoma

Oklahoma's pro-business climate and excellent wind resource have helped to attract wind developers from across the country and the globe.

Geothermal resources used to produce renewable electricity in western states

Geothermal plants are virtually emissions free, and unlike renewable sources such as wind and solar, they provide an available, dispatchable source of baseload power that is able to operate at a relatively high capacity factor.

Green growth: an operational tool (and GDP has had its day…)

Natural capital, made up of several elements that nature provides us with as the sustenance and basis of our society (soil, raw materials, water, clean air, …) has an economic value: today any growth model that ignores this by now shared knowledge can no longer work.

Optimizing Solar Plant Implementation

In this paper, we will focus on a theoretical study and its application to a concrete site. We will try to answer the question: How can we optimize the implementation of horizontal trackers on a solar plant?

Solar Powered Generators & Energy Efficiency, Go Hand In Hand

Energy Efficiency is all about optimal and responsible power use and this is also exactly how one gets the most energy out of their solar generator.

10 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Solar Installer

Going solar should be a great experience - not a headache, and doing your homework upfront will give you something money can't buy - peace of mind.

Featured Product

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
