Silicon carbide enables solar inverters to be lighter, smaller and more efficient. Using silicon carbide power components instead of silicon for solar inverters can save 10 megawatts for each gigawatt and 500 watts/sec in operations, representing significant energy savings.
With stay-at-home orders in place in many states, homes utilizing deep-cycle batteries for power could be increasingly straining their systems. As more people stay home, more appliances and electrical accessories that would typically be off during the day will be used.
The Evolution of Solar Technology - How Photovoltaic Technology Has Developed and Why Nanotechnology May Influence the Future
Here, Dr Franky So, chief technology officer of nanotechnology research company Nextgen Nano, explains the historical developments of photovoltaic technology and looks to the innovations shaping the years ahead.
In two-thirds of the world, renewable sources of power are more affordable than carbon-based electricity. This shift represents a substantial victory for green energy, as it may offer the push the industry needs to become the new norm. Here's how this monumental shift happened.
There are advantages and disadvantages to any type of energy source. In this article, I will discuss the disadvantages of renewable energy. Wind energy is one universally used type of renewable energy. It is also one of the fastest spreading resources for electricity. But . . .
Battery manufacturers have improved deep cycle battery performance through the use of additives, but not all of them result in the same benefit to customers.
Several contributions from the farmers, research institutes and the industry has led to the production of biogas as a mature technology, the purification process of biogas has been made simpler and a wide variety of substrates or raw materials are being used in the process.
Now, however, many green energy companies are looking toward a new kind of offshore wind turbine that won't need a concrete foundation. This new technology allows a turbine to float instead of sitting on the ocean floor.
This shift in focus is redefining engineering by providing us with a new set of challenges. In the past engineers focused on making sure their machines were safe for workers, we're now having to think of ways to make sure industry processes are safe for the entire planet.
Hydropower may become less costly as startups are beginning to use pre-existing facilities and discontinue dam building. Thus, construction costs would be minimal and engineers could implement hydropower on a much larger scale.
With the constant growth in demand for manufactured goods and environmental protections under coordinated assault, there's never been a more important time for manufacturers to take their part in air pollution seriously.
To understand the effects the crisis could have on the renewable energy market, we conducted a survey of project developers, analyzed data from the LevelTen Marketplace, and talked to our customers. Here are five key takeaways.
According to the US PV market study of Wood Mackenzie, throughout 2020 more than 6 GW will be installed in photovoltaic projects, of which Soltec will install almost 600 MW. Colin Caufield, Soltec VP of Sales USA reveals the company's next movements.
Cheap renewable energy and low-priced batteries are anticipated to lead to wind and solar producing 50 percent of the world's electricity generation by 2050.
Industry suppliers tend to throw around a lot of different labor metrics. What do they actually mean? How do variations in modules-per-day or modules-per-hour impact your bottom line? And-a primary concern-will a given supplier stand behind their claims?
