Using solar energy to meet your power demands does not only make you more environmentally friendly, it may actually save you money.
The system can fit 10 times as much power output than traditional panels in a given container.
It’s called “clean” energy for a reason.
Sounds like a deal.
The UK is taking huge strides — but in the opposite direction.
When one door closes, another one opens.
How one organization is proposing solving climate change by looking inwards, not outwards for solutions.
China does it again.
It’s all you need to know, really.
There are absolutely no subsidies which means this is the cheapest power plant in the world.
Dubai loves to take things to the superlative, and the city isn’t toying around this time either.
What you need to know about solar energy and solar panels. Get your solar energy facts straight.
Making the most of that California sun.
An MIT research team has developed a new technology that will allow for the creation of lighter and thinner solar cells than ever before. While the team says there is still work to be done before making them commercially available, the panels already proved their efficacy in laboratory settings. They hope that their work will power the next generation of portable
Morocco is poised to become a solar superpower, as they revealed plans for the largest concentrated solar power plant, powered by the Saharan sun.
India is one of the most polluted countries in the world, but for what it’s worth local authorities acknowledge this and are trying to balance their energy mix, currently heavily reliant on fossil fuel. More than 90% of India’s energy needs are met by coal, oil and gas. In all this ocean of dirt, particles and toxic fumes, the Cochin International Airport (CIAL) shines like jewel – the first international airport in the world that is 100% served by solar energy.
Solar-aided power plants could mean less CO2 for a fraction of the costs of solar-only, paving the way for a full-renewable power supply.
A new project started by Green Energy Africa in September 2014 has brought solar energy to 2,000 homes in Naiputa county alone, and put new power into the hands of women who sell affordable solar installations.
Only six months ago, a 230-foot strip of road was covered in solar panels in the Netherlands. Since then, some 3,000 kilowatt-hours of energy were produced or enough to power one Dutch home for a whole year. These news came as a surprise even to the developers of SolaRoad, as the project has been dubbed.
Solar power is one of the most efficient yet clean sources of energy we have access to. There are no increased fuel costs or dependencies, no ties to pollutants, and it’s both reliable and affordable. Of course, in order to harness solar power you need access to specific technology. This tech relies on either small-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, large-scale
