Currently, China boasts the highest number of installed solar power panels with 112GW in the summer of 2017. The country has managed to achieve the target it had set for 2020 three years ahead of schedule
What's happening in Colorado suggests that renewables, such as wind and solar, will continue to be cost-effective, even in the face of challenges. We may get closer to a renewable energy future than even many of the most optimistic analysts have predicted.
Accelerated demand across the world will still only partially compensate for the reduced outlook in China. As a result, the IHS Markit outlook for global PV installations in 2018 has fallen from 113 gigawatts to 105 gigawatts, which is still 11 percent higher than in 2017.
It is clear that solar power is a real contender for a reliable and affordable energy source if the issue of storage is overcome. Some of these solutions go a long way to showing that smart houses and bio-powered vehicles running on solar energy may become a reality.
At this time, OPVs are applicable only in limited markets that require lightweight, flexibility, and variable angle performance.
Decentralized energy resources like solar PV, batteries and electric vehicles are transforming how we trade and transfer energy.
Everyone is talking about electric cars, but small passenger vehicles aren't the only ones that are switching to electric. Recreational vehicles, or RVs, are also starting to make the switch to electric.
Not only do we think that aesthetics is not a niche market, we think it will come to dominate the solar market in a few years time. With a presence in less than two percent of households today, residential solar is still in its infancy.
Annual solar installations grew almost 20 percent year over year in 2017, and the solar industry is also edging within 100 gigawatts, a milestone the industry will reach this year
The low cost of European offshore wind energy is the result of several factors, including advanced turbine technology, the availability of specialty construction vessels, concentrated supply chain expertise and consistent policy support.
While offshore wind has come the farthest and gets the most attention, there are other offshore generation resources that may start making waves in the near future too.
Survey of 236 companies shows that organizations feel ready to compete in the evolving energy landscape; but action doesn't match perception.
Some analysts have predicted that renewables will make up the greatest part of the nation's energy portfolio in spite of any policies that are implemented.
Currently, many rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities can save money through community-scale solar by avoiding generation and demand charges.
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.

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
