Post-Pandemic Economic and Development Challenges for Solar

What got us till here may not be sufficient to take us to the finish line. Persistent efforts at an accelerated pace in the right direction is vital to reach decarbonization goals by 2035.

Understanding Wind Turbine Fire Protection

A whopping 90% or more of wind turbine fires originate in the nacelle. The nacelle contains the gear box, the generator, the controller, the low- and high-speed shafts, and the brake-and it (the nacelle) sits atop the tower.

What You Need to Know About Energy Storage System Fire Protection

When dealing with any form of energy and its storage, there is always some degree of risk with an associated hazard involved. With PSH, there is a risk that the containment could fail producing the hazard of cascading water rushing through the surrounding area.

Q&A - Whats New With QuickBOLT

Another new product we're excited about is our EPDM Conduit Mount for Asphalt Shingle, EPDM & TPO roofs. This mount offers great flexibility in bundling cables and wires. It is also a deck mounted product, so skip the rafters and install anywhere on the roof.

Recent innovations in turning Agricultural Waste into Biofuels

Wastes from fields and wastes from processing are the two kinds of agricultural wastes. Field wastes are present after harvesting crops and include stems, leaves, and stalks, and waste after processing crops includes seeds, peels, husks, etc.

Increasing Labor Efficiency in Solar Mounting

The process of installing passive flashing components requires disruption of the roof shingles which can inadvertently cause further damage and potential leaks. We've taken the approach of why tear up a perfectly good roofing system to install something over the top of it.

Latest Technical Breakthroughs in Wind Energy

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.

Ai-driven Home Solar and Usage Monitoring

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.

NEC 2023 Changes to Sections 690, 691, 692, 694, 705, 710 and 790

This article summarizes some of the current and new requirements regarding proper labeling for standard solar and wind installations.

Alternate Energy Aficionados Dream Come True : Solar Cars: Is It Really a Possibility?

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.

Using Carbon Additives to Improve Performance of AGM Batteries

Batteries that operate in partial state of charge (PSOC) environments can suffer from reduced charge acceptance that can lead to progressive capacity loss.

Advances in Solar Panel Technology in Recent Years and Its Use in Solar Car Development

Currently, a high-efficiency car company, Aperta Motors, is conducting test drives and safety tests on a new design of cars. These Aperta are three-wheelers, covered by 34 square feet of solar panels, which provide enough energy to drive up to 40 miles on a sunny day.

Best Practices for Installing a Solar-Ready Low Slope Roof

When installing a solar array, having a coverboard as part of the roofing assembly is a best practice. As such, most manufacturers of solar mounts test and evaluate their mechanical attachment products with a coverboard over polyisocyanurate (polyiso) insulation.

Using Wind Energy for Hydrogen Production : An Innovative Concept

As a way to resolve wind curtailment, the integration of hydrogen fuel at a wind farm allows flexibility to shift production to best match the resource availability with its particular operational needs and market factors.

Evaluating the Efficiency of Hydropower as an Alternative Energy Source and its Effects on the Ecosystem

Generation of hydropower, a renewable source of energy, is not a difficult feat, however, making the generation process efficient and cost effective is the real challenge.
