How Solar and Wind Energy Are Now Cheaper than Fossil Fuels

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.

Understanding the Impact of COVID-19 on the Renewable Energy Industry

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.

How the Renewable Energy Market Is Being Impacted by COVID-19

The success of the sustainable energy industry is challenging to determine at this time. While it has some of the same obstacles to overcome as other industries, there are also some promising signs.

What is the Safest Energy for the Future?

Energy's deathprint is the number of people killed by one kind of energy or another per kWhr produced. Coal is the worst. According to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Academy of Science.

Is Waste to Energy Set to Increase in the Coming Years?

There are currently 71 waste to energy (WTE) plants in the United States. WTE plants only account for 0.4% of total electricity generation, although there is great potential to increase this percentage in the future.

Huawei Predicts 10 Trends in Smart PV for 2025

Over the next 5 to 10 years, renewable energy will assume a more prominent role as a main power source for power grids. Solar power, in particular, as the most noteworthy form of renewable energy, has a particularly bright future.

New Technology Will Revolutionize Hydropower

Renewable power is right at our fingertips. With the help of new technology, water bodies like oceans, lakes and rivers can provide a substantial amount of clean electricity.

How the Energy Industry Will Grow in 2020

Major shifts - including new technology, rising oil prices and a changing climate - are encouraging investors to look to new energy sources. In 2020, power consumption and the industry as a whole is expected to grow significantly.

In 2019, Kicking Biomass Out of the Clean Energy Club

Per unit of energy, biomass power plants emit more carbon dioxide from their smokestacks than coal plants. And cutting down older trees and replacing them with saplings reduces the amount of carbon stored in that forest, even under a best-case scenario.

A Comforting Thought For 2020: Clean Energy is Thriving

Onshore wind power in the U.S. officially passed 100 GW in October of this year. Looking forward, the Energy Information Agency also expects that a record breaking 14.3 GW of wind will come online in 2020.

Five Companies Selected to Join GCxN Cleantech Accelerator

The five participating companies were selected through a multistage competitive evaluation and are focused on advancing novel utility grid or electric vehicle charging technologies - the areas of focus identified for this cohort.

Renewable Energy Now Accounts for a Third of Global Power Capacity

The annual increase of 7.9 per cent was bolstered by new additions from solar and wind energy, which accounted for 84 per cent of the growth. A third of global power capacity is now based on renewable energy.

Tenth Edition of Data Book Reveals Trends in U.S. and Global Renewable Energy Growth

This year's edition is the first to include data and trends for electric vehicles and energy storage technologies, in addition to data-centric charts for wind, solar, hydropower, and alternative fuels.

Wind Farms Now More Affordable than Coal Plants

Lazard stated that building and operating solar and wind facilities will now be cheaper than running a coal plant in particular areas of the US. As a result, it is actually leading to the closure of many coal plants across the country.

IREC's 2019 Clean Energy States Honor Roll

After a colossal year of energy policy activity across the states, the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) calls out some favorite 2018 success stories in its 2019 Clean Energy States Honor Roll, announced today.
