Thermophotovoltaics (TPV) is a method of converting heat to electricity using infrared light as an intermediary. Combustion heats an emitter to incandescence and the resulting thermal radiation is converted to electricity by a photovoltaic cell.
Despite looming policy uncertainty in the two most active markets, corporations globally purchased 5.4 gigawatts of clean power through long-term contracts, surpassing 2015's record.
Smart Off-Grid provides a way for off-grid systems to be monitored, managed and controlled remotely. Built-in, low-cost wireless communications in solar, wind and hybrid-powered devices send critical data to a cloud-based management system in real-time.
Kyree Leary for Futurism: Eco Marine Power has announced plans to test their patented solar sails next year. These EnergySails would utilize solar and wind energy simultaneously.
The trash cans are solar powered because they don't just collect trash, they compact it. That allows each receptacle to hold about five times more waste than a non-compactor of the same size.
The year of 2018 will only mean further immersion into all things digital, so be sure your company stays relevant and financially viable through sustainability measures.
David L. Chandler, MIT News Office: New metal-mesh membrane could solve longstanding problems and lead to inexpensive power storage.
Chris Martin for Bloomberg Business Week: Even before Trump's tariffs, the U.S. panel maker underpriced Chinese rivals with a spray-on, energy-absorbing metal and largely automated factories.
Along with the warranty, you'll need to consider the company's ability to honor its warranty. Is the company (either the installer or the panel maker) an established player in the industry? If not, it's hard to know how reliable and stable the brand will be
Illinois Doctor Converts His BMW To Electric Power Using Nine U.S. Battery 12-Volt Deep-Cycle Batteries
U of Cambridge via Science Daily: A new design of algae-powered fuel cells that is five times more efficient than existing plant and algal models, as well as being potentially more cost-effective to produce and practical to use, has been developed.
Integrating the module and the inverter is a natural evolution. In the PC industry, silicon semiconductor components have been continuously integrated to reduce manufacturing cost, reduce complexity, and simplify the customer experience.
When looking at potential solutions to becoming more self reliant/sustainable with energy, the conversation needs to begin with taking a hard look on how energy is being used today. There are several outside the box solutions that naturally lend themselves to sustainability
Akshat Rathi for Quartz: Renewable electricity is already competitive with fossil-fuel power. Better still, the report makes the extraordinary prediction: By 2020, all forms of renewable electricity will be consistently cheaper than power produced by burning fossil fuels.
Joseph Flaig for Institution of Mechanical Engineers: Electric cars worldwide will soon have 10 times the total storage capacity of stationary batteries and should be thought of as "batteries on wheels" to solve renewable energy's storage problem, an expert has said.
