The “Helicopter” can even function inside a room collecting the sun as the rays hit the open space.
Using data from NASA, double sided, tilting solar panels create 35% more energy, on average, than immobile single-panel photovoltaic systems, while reducing the cost of electricity by an average of 16%.
A green oasis in the desert? Las Vegas is shedding its old image and preparing for a future without fossil fuels Las Vegas is a town built around big ambitions, its founders turning an arid wilderness into the premier entertainment paradise in the world. However, in recent times it has been undergoing something of an […]
Viganella is a village in Italy where the sun never shines. So locals installed a giant mirror to project the sun’s rays back onto them. Image via The Atlantic. There are companies and apps that do it already from the comfort of your own home: you can check the solar panel potential output from your […]
Michael Moore’s explosive documentary, Planet of the Humans, full documentary can be seen below, shows how the renewable energy business can never be sustainable. Part of the reason is really about raw materials and where we source them from, like graphite. Lithium ion batteries in electric cars for instance are so energy intensive and have […]
Deserts may not look like much, but there is a slow building up of life organic and inorganic in the soil. We need to preserve them from damage.
Renewable energy installations can provide round the clock energy in continents like Africa, where more than half of the people are without power. This is important for industries like gold mining, who need to use polluting diesel in offgrid locations.
Renewables are perfect for Africa where more than half of all people don't have access to clean power. Microgrids powered by renewables are the future.
With a bounty of sun, the giant island nation and continent of Australia is landlocked. Like any island nation that is restricted from movement because of political or territorial disputes, nations like Australia, Switzerland or Israel learn that they need to be self-sufficient and fend for themselves. They create a local and sustainable food supply, […]
The decade of action for renewable energy.
Artificial Intelligence is used in this biodome to grow bio-organic food with zero waste using the Eddy robot by flux. The robotic solution was developed by a team of Israeli engineers.
Adolescent men in the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) are recruited by warlords because they are desperate. A new German fund will help keep farming in the family and guys like this in his father's arms. Bigger steps are needed from the top down: Investing in renewables is the answer.
You got to love New Yorkers. They are real, and they are often serious. And they like to walk the walk. So New Yorkers have a lot to celebrate now that their elected mayor Mayor Bill de Blasio declared that he will stop all new fossil fuel projects within and serving the city. Great talk, but what are locals doing really?
IRENA was founded a decade ago to solve the world's energy problems. It's like the United Nations of Renewable Energy and anyone who is a serious stakeholder in renewables from government to news to suppliers goes to this annual event.
The Energy and Mines World Congress shows that 2019 will be considered the tipping point for solar and wind projects in the mining sector The Energy and Mines World Congress that took place in Toronto provided great insights into the recent developments of onsite renewable energy applications at remote mines. Getting power lines to remote […]
In the past twenty years, both scientists’ understanding of the physical properties of quantum dots and their levels of control over these tiny particles have increased tremendously. This has led to a widespread application of quantum dots in our daily lives—from bio-imaging and bio-tracking (relying on the fact that quantum dots emit different colors based on their size) to solar energy and next-generation TV monitors with exceptional color quality.
The Green New Deal is a term that has been thrown around recently as a potential option to address serious issues related to climate change. While many people have heard about this proposal, there are still a lot of questions about what it actually entails.
There has never been a better time to embrace the power of solar energy. The price of installing a solar panel system keeps falling and the Federal Government, along with several cities, offer lucrative incentives and rebates for installing such a system. Even better is the fact that a solar installation saves you money on […]
Meta description: Google and other big corporations have inked a deal that will increase solar energy accessibility in Georgia, and solar investments are up around the world
This 1.5 MW solar PV project in Jericho was the largest solar energy installation in the West Bank, until now We want to high five you whenever we hear news like this, news that trumps violence and despair: Two new large solar energy photovoltaic (PV)projects are being built in the West Bank with energy output […]
We bet, you already know how to deal with the research paper in general. Let us pay 2-minute attention to the basics just to freshen up your memory and then we will talk about the specific rules and ideas for writing on solar energy. You research paper should include: Abstract. Short summary of your work, […]
It would seem everyone, except the US President, is firmly behind trying to reduce the world’s carbon footprint. Two of the planet’s largest suppliers of fossil fuel have recently announced big investment plans for the use of solar power in their respective countries. In Dubai: According to the Bloomberg news service, Dubai is planning to […]
While most homeowners know that adding a solar array to their homes can save money on energy bills, only a handful have enhanced their systems with a solar home battery. Not only do home battery storage systems allow you to back up your home in the event of an outage and reduce reliance on the […]
On a recent screening of CNN commentator Fareed Zakaria’s GPS commentary show he asked why China’s progressive renewal energy policies is taking that country into the 21st Century; while the USA’s current energy policies is retreating it back into the 19th. The GPS program pointed out China’s advances in the field of renewable energy, particularly solar and wind energy […]
Solar powered flight has been in the news ever since the sun powered Solar Impulse 2, piloted by Swiss adventurer Bertrand Picard and his associate Andre Borschberg, flew around the world in 2015 to 16. This flight, relying solely on wing mounted solar panels, took over a year to complete before finally landing in Abu Dhabi in […]
