Solar energy is not the only sustainable resource Cool Idea! Award winners have harnessed thus far.
A South Australian solar energy company is in talks with 'major developers' to build energy self-reliant housing estates which don't need to be connected to the main electricity grid.
Rooftop Solar System at DuPont R&D Center Serves as Model for Distributed Solar Power Systems in China
The minimal seismic anchors were installed at a rate of up to five per man hour. Combined, the arrays were spread over more than ten individual flat roofs.
The Environmental Governance approach of Osaka is exemplary for the developing Asian cities who are trying to balance development and sustainability.
Spray-on solar cells use nanotechnology. These cells are made using quantum dots, which is a nanocrystal composed of a semiconductor material that is small enough to take advantage of the laws of quantum mechanics.
A reflective surface reduces smog by reflecting heat back into the atmosphere. Not only is the smog reduced, but more importantly, energy costs are lowered in big cities.
The US and China will be in the 12-15 GW range in 2015 but the incremental growth will come from some of these emerging markets. We expect Mexico to be a 2 GW market by 2017, with South Africa also above the 1 GW mark by 2017. These two markets were stagnant in 2013-14, so the growth will be quite significant in the coming years.
The goal of this program is to increase the efficiency of Array Technologies' commercial sales process while providing customers with access to the highest quality turnkey solar services with Array Technologies' tracking systems.

The Department of Energy is investing in renewable energy through the Wave Energy Prize and is offering an opportunity for both seed funding and prize purses totaling more than $1 million for qualified prize participants.
Fossil-fuel industries are boom and bust. Renewables don't have to be.
Amyris' innovative bioscience technology directly converts plant sugars into hydrocarbon molecules to create the renewable fuel, and the technology enables the operations of the Amyris-Total partnership to deliver the fuel from "field to wing."
Ontario's Thunder Bay 150-megawatt generating station is now fully operational using clean-burning advanced biomass fuel - sawdust pellets from the province's lumber industry.
Just imagine, a super grid will allow Norway's hydro-power to light up a restaurant in Italy, Belgium's wind farms to provide power to a home in U.K., and Saharan solar power plants to run a factory in Germany.
