EVs Only as Green as Their Grids

Though EVs are two to three times more efficient than conventional, gasoline-powered vehicles and have no tailpipe emissions, the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) reductions and air quality benefits they bring depend on the mix of energy generation sources on the grid used to charge them.

Implementing Drones to Inspect Electric Utility Wires

It's plotting a new course to the destination utilities are already sailing to (a proactive condition based asset management) and that this new course or technology is often seen as a disruption first before realizing it as an opportunity.

Battery Pack Prices Fall as Market Ramps Up With Market Average at $156/kwh in 2019

Cost reductions in 2019 are thanks to increasing order size, growth in battery electric vehicle sales and the continued penetration of high energy density cathodes. The introduction of new pack designs and falling manufacturing costs will drive prices down in the near term.

59% of Consumers' Next Car Will Likely Be Electric

We found there was more EV adoption in California than in the Northeast. There are many factors, but it is the case that public regulators have been approving significant funding to promote electric vehicles in the west, including widespread public media campaigns.

Streamlining Grid Interconnections: Cooperation Over Competition in an Increasingly Renewable World

While huge leaps of progress have been made, there is still work to be done. Last year, DG solar accounted for just 0.7% of all U.S. grid power generation. Limited market penetration has allowed a number of states to refrain from adopting statewide grid interconnection standards.

Understanding and Installing Split-Cell Modules

With split-cell (aka half-cell) modules becoming more prominent in the market, it is important to understand their inherent differences and have the know-how necessary to install them.

Heliogen Achieves Breakthrough Temperatures From Concentrated Sunlight for Industrial Processes

Heliogen will be able to replace the fuel that generates greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes with solar energy for the first time. For instance, cement production - one of the industrial processes well suited to Heliogen's technology - alone accounts for more than 7 percent of global CO2 emissions.

What is Geoengineering?

Geoengineering is also called climate engineering or climate intervention. It is the planned intervention in the Earth's climate with the intention of moderating the undesirable effects of global warming.

Blade for World's Most Powerful Offshore Wind Turbine Arrives in Boston for Testing

More powerful wind turbines are driving down cost of offshore wind power and helping to drive strong growth in US and globally, creating up to $70 billion in economic development activity in US. Blade for GE's Haliade-X 12MW offshore wind turbine to be tested at Wind Technology Testing Center to simulate full lifetime of blade.

How to Protect Solar Panels from Environmental Damage

Solar PV systems spend all their time outside, so it's natural for them to encounter the occasional animal droppings or falling acorns. You may wonder how to keep them intact when more prominent issues like thunderstorms and hurricanes roll around, though.

How Can We Improve Hydropower Technologies?

Innovation is inevitable, and technologies, digital or not, will progress as time goes on because it has too. Sustainable clean energy sources are vital to the future of our planet and with a little bit of commitment to innovation, we can get there sooner than we think.

Morningstar and TÜV Rheinland

In the solar industry, standards and regulations change quickly, with new standards emerging at a rapid pace. Morningstar has been using multiple compliance service providers, but struggled to find one that aligned with all their specific needs.

Solar Light Systems Provide Crucial Light Sources in Remote Oil Fields

EcoSol Energy Systems a leading energy, water and sustainability consulting headquartered Dubai, United Arab Emirates was tapped to develop a lighting system to keep the oil fields running safely and efficiently.

How Did Wind and Solar Become Cheaper Than Coal?

The IEA predicts the world's renewable energy capacity will increase by 50% between now and 2024. This rise in renewable energy usage is mostly due to solar PV, which is becoming favorable in a wide range of industries.

Babcock Ranch: Learning From the World's First Solar-powered Town

Real estate developers, Kitson & Partners, have set a new standard for sustainable living. Their groundbreaking model of a 100 percent solar-powered town in South Florida called Babcock Ranch, is touted to be the largest self-sustaining community in the country.
