Anthony Deutsch for Reuters: An offshore seaweed farm in the North Sea will be turned into a large solar power farm that aims to pipe energy to the Dutch mainland in roughly three years.
While there is much to be excited about whenever a new advancement is made in the solar industry, it's important to understand what is fact and what is fiction. So, what are the true facts behind the Tesla Solar Roof, and what is pure PR?
The standard is now being leveraged to support applications at the grid edge including communication with distributed energy resources (DER) including solar, wind and local storage. DER applications are becoming increasingly important in supplying electricity.
By incorporating this new technology into the FPL Citrus Solar Energy Center, a solar power plant that was built in 2016, FPL expects to increase the amount of solar energy that the plant can deliver to the electric grid by more than half a million kilowatt-hours a year.
The Solar Foundation: The Solar Foundation's annual National Solar Jobs Census is a comprehensive report on employment trends within the U.S. solar industry, nationwide and state by state. The latest Solar Jobs Census includes data for 2017.
Survey of 236 companies shows that organizations feel ready to compete in the evolving energy landscape; but action doesn't match perception.
Mark Austin for DigitalTrends: Installation of the 5kW solar panels and Tesla batteries has already begun on 1,100 public housing properties, with 24,000 more to follow. After that, the program will be opened up to as many as 50,000 South Australian homes.
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.
The U.S. wind power industry closed 2017 strong, delivering 7,017 megawatts (MW) of new wind power capacity representing $11 billion in new private investment, according to the U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2017 Market Report, released today. Twenty-nine new wind farms t
Lauren Thomas for CNBC: The expansion would help Tesla test the appeal of its renewable-energy products to a wider audience. It would help Home Depot use some of its excess floor space to sell new products and gain a competitive edge over its peers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
