Taylor Farms Taps Bloom Energy, Ameresco and Concept Clean Energy to Take California Fresh Vegetable Production Facility Off the Grid

Taylor Farms is completing the installation 2MW of solar power at its facility in San Juan Bautista, California, which will be combined with 6MW of fuel cells from Bloom Energy and a 2MW/4MWh battery into a microgrid designed to power the entire 450,000 sq. ft. facility.

Using transparent solar power for cultivating crops

NextGen Nano has released an infographic highlighting how the production of solar-powered glazing for greenhouse windows can help contribute to a sustainable future.

How We Can Protect Raw Materials for an Energy Transition

Transitioning to a world with net-zero emissions is a tall task. Protecting raw materials is one of the greatest challenges of such a massive energy transition.

The Importance of Solar Panel and PV Management Equipment Recycling

Solar panels contain hazardous materials. If they get into our landfills, our environment and our entire ecosystem will be effected. In our industry, solar panels been considered to be part of the "last mile" of electronic waste that needs to be responsibly recycled.

Battery Recycling Can Lead to a Better Future for Energy Resources

Various business sectors and local and federal government agencies are increasingly looking to lead batteries as a vital energy resource. Lead-acid batteries are nearly 100-percent recycled in a closed-loop system and represent a sustainable resource.

Powering Towards a Sustainable Future

The solar industry in the USA creates 260,000 jobs in the renewable energy sector annually, making it 17 times faster than other industries. With the USA leading the race for solar power, the rest of the countries are also following suit.

Innovations In End of Life Solar Panel Disposal & Recycling

Estimates are that approximately 8 million metric tons of solar panels will reach their end-of-life in the next nine years. That amount will increase to 80 million within 30 years. Where will they all go?

Waste Plastic Conversion to Lubricant Base Oils

The conversion of plastic waste into fuel is beneficial for the global economy and environment. Plastic conversion to fuel has the potential to create almost 40,000 jobs.

It's time for change - Technology essential to tackle climate change

To pursue a sustainable future, manufacturers need to find options to increase energy efficiency. Industrial robotics is an ideal way to help improve sustainability and minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing activities.

Electric Vehicles' Unsustainable Little Secret - Batteries Are the Weak Link in the Sustainability Chain

Typically made from raw materials including cobalt, nickel and manganese, lithium-ion batteries are extremely expensive to produce and require high levels of mining activity.

Solving the Carbon dilemma

Beyond moving away from fossil fuels, one of the most promising strategies is trapping carbon and either sequestering it in the ground, or using it for other applications. There are a number of ways this can be done.

World Energy Storage Day: Fixing Flaws in Li-ion Batteries

IDTechEx have forecasted lithium-ion battery demand to reach over 2500 GWh for electric vehicles alone. However, the uptake of lithium-ion batteries is not without cost - they still present both technological and environmental problems.

Green Software - A New Trend for a Better Planet

How to call the wider group of companies which bring to market innovations that could replace existing technologies with more environmental-friendly ones, even if their primary goal doesn't strictly align with the definition of Green Tech?

How photovoltaic glass can be used to cut harmful emissions

This versatility means that PV glass can be used for several different applications to help individuals and businesses reduce their energy costs by replacing conventional glass in buildings, vehicles and other structures.

Overcoming the rare earths shortage with the circular economy

To contribute to limiting the global use of rare earths, manufacturers could consider replacing their traditional linear economy model with a circular model. In the circular economy model, products and materials are recovered and regenerated at the end of their service lives.
