The sharing economy has become an unstoppable force--and the collaborative, peer-to-peer economy has grown from a curious fad into the trend-to-beat-all-trends over the past decade.
Small-scale wind energy is still in the beginning phases in Germany. Yet interest in this technology is gaining traction in light of rising electricity prices and the sociopolitical direction we are heading in to invest more in renewable energies in the future.
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.
A change in chemical composition enabled scientists to boost the longevity and efficiency of a perovskite solar cell developed at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
This technology could represent a turning point in sustainable power. Scientists have been working for decades to make our way of life more environmentally friendly. One of the most critical aspects of this effort is to generate reliable alternative energy.
Now, researchers have developed a new way of creating solar panels that may make it easier to install than ever before - a crystal-based liquid that has allowed researchers to effectively paint on solar panels to suitable surfaces.
The dye sensitized solar cell can produce electricity under low light conditions, including indoor lighting. Due to the structural design and different color dyes, the cell features colors and transparency.
There are more than 2.5 billion cars, which generate wind turbulence. The same wind turbine which is responsible for huge windmill rotation can be replaced by small efficient traffic wind turbines.
More powerful wind turbines are driving down cost of offshore wind power and helping to drive strong growth in US and globally, creating up to $70 billion in economic development activity in US. Blade for GE's Haliade-X 12MW offshore wind turbine to be tested at Wind Technology Testing Center to simulate full lifetime of blade.
The neutrinovoltaic technology developed by the Neutrino Energy Group derives electrical energy from neutrinos, which are invisible particles that bombard the Earth in roughly equal numbers every moment of every day.
We saw that by combining EV charging and solar production into one integrated solution, we could improve the way energy is produced and consumed. In addition, it made sense to embed an EV charger in an inverter as both verticals share similar customers.
An innovative thermal battery being developed by Curtin University researchers will be key to a solar power system capable of producing electricity overnight.
MWT is an acronym for a PV cell technology that has been designed specifically on crystalline silicon type solar cells. It stands for Metal Wrap Through.
Ten Teams Selected in Competition Designed to Accelerate Innovation and Boost Solar Manufacturing
A Loughborough University PhD student has helped shed light on a solar panel puzzle that could lead to more efficient devices being developed.
