Even as fracking has reduced the cost of natural gas, improvements in renewable energy technologies have brought their costs down to be cost-competitive with fossil fuels. In many cases, they can compete even without tax incentives in place.
Billions of individual devices and population growth have increased demand exponentially. Technology advances with the potential to lower costs and ward off cyber dangers are critically needed. And, commitments to clean and renewable energy sources have become mandates.
Whether an integrator is just trying to make it day to day or looking for ways to expand, the key is customer satisfaction. This starts with sales. There is a two-way relationship between sales and operations, which is essential to creating satisfied customers.
The first numbers on last year's energy trends are in and there are two pieces of great news and one that should worry us: Solar and wind energy are thriving, coal-fired generation sunk to a four-decade low - but natural gas infrastructure is expanding.
New report by IRENA charts pathways to further accelerate energy transformation which meets climate objectives while creating jobs and fostering economic growth.
Customers seek cleaner transport options and lower total cost of ownership, both of which EVs can provide, while utilities seek to manage the charging times of these new electricity-consuming EVs and align that charging to the times of day that are the most economical.
Sustainability has long been transforming our most treasured conventions, and new trends are emerging within our culture to reflect that. With trends come money - but the most money comes from those who arrive first. This requires you to keep your ear to the ground.
Slower growth in the residential and rooftop commercial markets caused many solar companies operating with minimal margin for error to face liquidity challenges that rippled throughout the value chain.
The Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2) Channel Partner Awards are competitive grants that serve to support the cleantech ecosystem by funding sustainability-focused incubators, accelerators, and university programs
Many local solar installers agree that their main task is educating customers, lawmakers and building inspectors about solar. Local solar contractors are in a unique position to advocate for solar because they are at the crossroads ...
The introduction of an Ultra Low Emission Zone is intended to help improve the air quality in central London. Currently, air pollution is one of the biggest challenges London is facing.
Bankruptcy laws would allow PG&E to renegotiate supplier contracts and in Ohio a judge allowed FirstEnergy Solutions to renegotiate money losing PPAs. But are these money-losing contracts?
As utilities move towards distributed energy, the customer's role in the energy value chain increases dramatically. The utility's ability to influence mutually beneficial DER adoption and behavior will dictate whether or not DERs serve as an opportunity or threat
We are currently being encouraged to make the transition over to electric and hybrid vehicles, but just what effect will this have on traditional fuel sources? Lookers, who offer a variety of car servicing plans, explore what the future of fuel looks like for the UK.
There are still huge strides to make to combat climate change, but we are definitely making progress. Leaders from across the globe are stepping up efforts to ensure marked changes are being made to dramatically reduce emissions and change behaviours - and fast.

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
