Phys.org: Solar cells can generate electricity in an environmentally friendly way, but current, complex fabrication costs make the technology expensive.
Looking forward, energy efficiency employers project the highest growth rate over the next 12 months (about 9 percent) while the [fossil] fuels sector reported it expects a decline in employment of about 3 percent over the same time period.
In March, renewables provided 21.6 percent of the nation’s net electricity generation compared to nuclear’s 20.34 percent. In April, that lead jumped to 22.98 percent compared to 19.19 percent from nuclear.
Events attracted high-quality attendees and served as a sounding board for recent industry triumphs and upcoming challenges
Anna Hirtenstein and Mathew Carr for Bloomberg: Solar plants that supply electricity at competitive prices after the sun goes down are about to become a reality in the Middle East
Hawaii’s PUC allowed the utilities to end their popular net metering programs and replace them with the Customer Self Supply program. The CSS program requires zero exportation of self-generated power back to the grid, which can most-efficiently be accomplished by integrating battery storage into the system.
Julia Pyper for GTM: But will that language make it into the final version?
Irina Slav for OilPrice.com: Siemens and AES launched a joint venture that focuses exclusively on battery storage systems.
Dom Galeon for Futurism: “An informed understanding of the potential future costs of electricity storage technologies is essential to quantify their uptake as well as the uptake of low-carbon technologies reliant on storage,” the researchers wrote.
We use AI to protect and optimize critical assets – that goes for both cyber and physical. Our predictive analytics platform lets users take massive amounts of data and, in an automated fashion, quickly build models to find meaning in it, thereby significantly improving maintenance strategies and costs.
The Market Analysis Platform ("MAP") is a software package that provides insight to potential buyers and others on where wind and solar power purchase agreements are more likely to be economically attractive.
Chris Martin for Bloomberg: The U.S. Energy Department awarded $46.2 million in research grants to improve solar energy technologies and reduce costs to 3 cents per kilowatt-hour by 2030.
Industry leaders take the stage at the premier solar and energy storage event; hundreds of exhibitors show off emerging technologies in buzzing exhibition hall
Sustaintech, short for sustainable technologies, are technologies which provide environmental and social value and help advance a better future for humanity. They leverage intelligent technologies and have a high degree of internet-integration to reduce environmental impact, and enhance efficiency and resource productivity.
The event at Darts Farm attracted more than 50 businesses from the South West and beyond, many of whom already have solar PV systems in place at their sites and are now looking for the next step to reduce their reliance on energy companies further.
Alexander C. Kaufman for Huffington Post: The first-of-its-kind project could be a model for states like Washington and Oregon, and countries like Brazil, that depend heavily on hydroelectricity.
Amber Kinetics and Global Energy Giant Enel S.p.A. Announce Agreement to Assess Innovative Flywheel Storage Technology
Paige Leuschner for SmartCitiesDive: In the energy industry, utilities are employing these solutions to provide customers with more information about their energy consumption.
Working with partners in industry and academia, NREL delivers the scientific building blocks for new energy technologies that drive the country's economic growth. NREL's world-class researchers, facilities, tools, and analysis yield innovations that create new business opportunities and greatly reduce the risk of investment for energy companies and manufacturers.
Lacy Cooke for Inhabitat: Toronto Hydro is testing a grid-scale energy storage system that can be attached to poles already present around the city.
