The main areas of growth in the next five years are likely to be in small-scale battery storage in conjunction with solar PV; in utility-scale electricity storage; in electric vehicles; in commercial, communications and software capabilities to allow DER to be aggregated, in a ‘virtual power plant’ or ‘swarm’; in pumped storage hydro; and in islanded use cases integrating renewables.
A pushed of solar rooftops and urge Negrenses to solarize homes and offices was led by Greenpeace Philippines together with Climate Reality Project Philippines. The forum organized by the groups held in Bacolod City aimed to maximize the solar energy potential of Negros Island Region which is considered as the renewable energy capital of the …
NEW DELHI: Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu on Wednesday said Indian Railways is working to run fully solar-powered trains in the future. Mr Prabhu said this after flagging-off the first freight train which featured a newly-developed guard van, which uses solar power to run fans and lights.
With the passage of Amendment 4 after last week’s primary vote, you might be under the impression that the Sunshine State is making hay from our abundant natural resource and creating a healthy amount of energy from solar. Not so. In fact, although Amendment 4 is a step in the right direction, it’s actually natural gas that carries the weight for our state’s long-term energy security.
Solar energy certainly has come a long way in being a reliable source of energy in its own right. Going from being a novelty resource tapped by climate change advocates to increasingly being used by individuals, cities, and even whole countries. Indeed, more and more countries are joining the solar bandwagon. The biggest player around is China, who has even thought up a $50 trillion global grid of renewable energy supplying all countries. India sees itself with a 100 GW solar power capacity by 2022.
As the price of crude oil continues to drop in the international market and nations seek alternative, cleaner, greener, more environment-friendly and sustainable energy sources to replace fossil fuel, a Nigerian company, Arthur Energy Technology Limited, has launched the first ever solar-powered tricycle, popularly called Keke Marwa. In this chat with Vanguard, the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Engr. Arthur Okeyika speaks on the objectives and benefits of the product.
July's successful circumnavigation of the globe by Solar Impulse was a triumph for human endurance and ingenuity, and proved solar power's efficacy as a reliable source of electricity. But the project would not have been possible without batteries... and the journey proved a voyage of discovery for storage’s technical possibilities.
There’s “Plenty of Potential” for Renewable Energy Tech Companies. Around the world, analysts are monitoring the impending revolution in renewable energy markets. Morgan Stanley, focusing lately on Australia, states that “the broader energy market in Australia still underestimates what’s about to hit them.”
Imagine a future where a building’s energy comes from its windows. Many scientists have worked towards that future in the lab, but now five scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory have demonstrated solar window technology can indeed be scaled up. Instead of palm-sized models, they created solar windows large enough to power entire buildings.
Southern California Edison choose a manufacturer and developer of scalable energy storage systems for commercial and utility customers, Powin Energy to build a 2 MW/8 MWh energy storage system in Irvine, Calif. “The selection is a result of the California Public Utilities Commission’s Aliso Canyon Energy Storage request for energy storage projects that could be …
COLOMBO (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - An ambitious plan by the Sri Lankan government to outfit 100,000 homes with solar panels, to turn them into power producers for the national grid, may be too expensive for many families to afford, experts warn. Sri Lanka’s government this month launched a “battle for solar energy” that aims to add 220 megawatts of clean power to the country’s energy grid by 2020, or about 10 percent of the country’s current daily electricity demand.
A young solar startup has modified gear that’s commonly used on big ground-based solar panel farms to be used on the rooftops of large buildings. It’s a rare entrepreneurial effort to build a new type of solar hardware in an industry that is increasingly focused on lowering costs. On Wednesday, startup Edisun Microgrids launched technology that brings what are called “trackers” onto the roofs of commercial and industrial buildings.
The installed price of solar energy has declined significantly in recent years as policy and market forces have driven more and more solar installations. Now, the latest data show that the continued decrease in solar prices is unlikely to slow down anytime soon, with total installed prices dropping by 5 percent for rooftop residential systems, and 12 percent for larger utility-scale solar farms.
