Elevating the PV panels on rooftops would reduce shadowing from adjacent properties and maximize power generation, and was therefore more favorable to achieve reliable and consistent system performance.
This paper will review recent advancements in wind energy over the last two to three years, with specific focuses on improving wind energy harvesting, offshore wind turbine foundation designs, and decreasing turbine fatigue.
To save money, and operate sustainably while doing so, a growing number of stadiums around the world are turning to solar to power their massive banks of floodlights, sound systems, luxury boxes and flashing video screens.
From technology and manufacturing companies to real estate and big-box retailers, companies are committing to decarbonization; there are a variety of approaches these companies are taking to meet commitments, while also weighing the balance of economics.
Jim McDowall, Saft Senior Technical Advisor, explains how a small salmon fishing town in Alaska has implemented a grid-scale 1MW energy storage system (ESS) to reduce its reliance on diesel generators.
As electric utility companies look to drastically reduce their CO2 emissions over the next several decades, significant steps are already being taken to begin modernizing the grid. Microgrids represent a key component of that modernization.
LiquidPiston Successfully Runs Hybrid-Electric X-Engine on Hydrogen, Proves Zero Emission Engine Technology Is a Reality
The company replaced a traditional go-kart engine with its hybrid-electric X-Engine powered by hydrogen.
More and more developers, EPCs and investors are evaluating tracker systems that use the power of air, also known as pneumatic power, instead of electric power because of the many advantages that pneumatics has to offer.
Two factors of the vehicle's operation are related to these new gear packs for electric cars-efficiency, or 'rangeability,' and gear noise. To appeal to consumers, electric vehicles will need to reach similar mileage as their internal combustion counterparts.
The U.S. Department of Energy and the White House have made offshore wind a centerpiece of plans to strengthen the nation's energy infrastructure, announcing a goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030-a huge leap from the 42 megawatts currently in operation.
On the sales side, showing customers how a home consumes electricity and how their bill is derived - and then how the proposed solar array would help solve their electric bill concerns - makes solar tangible.
This article summarizes some of the current and new requirements regarding proper labeling for standard solar and wind installations.
Using Solar-Log® monitoring, the SunPeak Operations & Maintenance team can track solar plant energy production metrics as well as data from the installed Lufft pyranometer to ensure that the system is running free and clear of errors.
After vigorous calculations, researchers have concluded that to drive 50 miles per day, a car needs 3.44 kW, and most of the current solar panels can produce 345 W/ft² under full sun, and that will need approximately 250 ft² of solar panels in a car.
Resistors are commonplace power components in industrial buildings - but their use is not limited to the factory floor. In many industries, resistors play a vital role in the power management of electrical equipment.
