Flares like this one are powerful enough to turn the planet into a hellscape.
It’s more profitable to start deploying new solar now than operating currently existing coal or nuclear plants.
Going 100% renewable eliminates 4-7 million air pollution deaths each year and creates 24 million long-term, full-time jobs.
Power from thin-ish air!
A huge concentrated solar power plant might open in Nevada, 2020 onward.
Power from thin air. Lots and lots of power.
This huge area will finally produce energy — 30 years after the meltdown.
Not much bigger than an apartment building, 2016 HO3 has been confirmed as Earth’s newest satellite.
A little ship braving the ocean on its own.
A few days ago, India’s Energy Minister Piyush Goyal announced that solar energy became cheaper to produce than coal-powered, costing roughly 6 US cents/kWh. Now, it’s become even cheaper: the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) received the lowest ever asking price for solar energy, at US 2.99 cents/kWh.
Every picture you’re likely to see of it shows planets and moons too close together prevents you from getting a feel of the size of our solar system. A group of friends plans to change that, however.
Wood, one of the cheapest and most widely used construction materials humanity has ever employed, has just had its range of uses expanded; Researchers at Stockholm’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology have developed a method of turning wood transparent that’s suitable for mass production.
The largest floating solar array in the world is to be unveiled later this month, on the Queen Elizabeth II reservoir, at Walton-on-Thames. The array is estimated to generate almost 6 million kWh in its maiden year of operations. The energy will be used to power London’s water treatment plants.
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
The French government announced its plan to build a 1,000 kilometer (621 mile) long stretch of solar panel-paved roads over the next five years. The locations for deployments have yet to be revealed. The fossil fuel tax is expected to bring in between 200 to 300 million euros ($220 to 440 million) of funding for the project coined “Positive 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.
In this energy conscious age it has become more important than ever to ensure that between our homes, place of work, and general everyday life, we do whatever we can to keep energy usage as well as subsequent energy bills at a minimum. High Tech home management systems It’s nothing new to have your thermostat set on a timer; for
As we were telling you recently, the biggest solar flare in the last 4 years is upon us, and while this doesn’t pose any direct danger for us, but the flare is making an impact throughout the world. Radio communications were disrupted, especially in China, but concern was generated everywhere throughout the world. However, experts say the Sun has just
