Liquid Metal Batteries May Be the Answer for Cheap Energy Storage
A 40-foot trailer loaded with 25 tons of liquid metals may be the solution to the renewable energy industry?s biggest challenge: making sure electricity is available whenever it?s needed.
Defining an Industry: Solar PV Operations & Maintenance versus Asset Management
There are more solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in the U.S. than ever before and more of them are aging out of warranty coverage. The need to manage this portfolio of residential, commercial and utility-scale solar assets is accelerating a relatively new industry sector, solar PV operations and maintenance (O&M).
Ten Clean Energy Stocks for 2014: March Update
After a rough January, the stock market recovered in February, while clean energy stocks partied like it was 2013.
Can Solar Power Help Marijuana Growers?
The sun has been around for a long time. So has marijuana, but legal pot in the U.S. hasn?t been around quite as long. In fact, earlier this year Colorado became the first state to sell legal marijuana in the U.S. With the country?s ? if not the world?s ? eyes on Colorado?s new policy, growers are looking for opportunities to better use their profi
Renewable Energy in MENA Area to Double Next Year, Desertec Says
Clean energy assets in the Middle East and North Africa will more than double in capacity by the end of next year, the Dii GmbH industry association said.
Japan May Set Higher Offshore Wind Subsidy, Reduce Solar Tariff
Japan plans to reduce incentives for solar power and introduce a higher tariff for offshore wind than onshore turbines to encourage installations.
Battery Storage May Vie with US Oil Boom as Energy Game Changer, Says Moniz
The rapid development of rooftop solar and battery storage technology could be as transformative to the economy and modern life as the U.S. oil and gas boom, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said.
Energy Price Concerns Resonate in EU Talks on 2030 Climate Goals
The European Union should ensure that future climate and energy policies do not undermine the competitiveness of its industry, already weakened by a price gap with the U.S., the bloc?s member states said.
It?s Now Official: U.S. Solar Industry Has Record-Shattering Year in 2013
What would Alexandre Edmond Becquerel be thinking now? In 1839, at the age of just 19, Becquerel built the world?s first photovoltaic panel, later inspiring the imaginations of millions of people worldwide, including legendary scientist Albert Einstein. Still, it took another 115 years before Bell Labs invented the first modern silicon solar cel
How the Military Is (Indirectly) Fueling the Solar Industry
If ever there was a champion of efficiency, the military would be it. Energy efficiency is no exception to this generalization. As The Solar Foundation (TSF) and Operation Free tell us in a recent Veterans in Solar report, the U.S. military has scaled up its use of distributed renewable energy technologies, at home and in combat zones, to strengthe
Listen Up: Let's Talk Rooftop Solar Safety with Fire Captain Matt Paiss
Fires in homes are generally caused by kitchen mishaps, heating system fires or electrical malfunctions. When it comes to fire safety, the solar industry's track record is excellent ? with only a few documented cases in which the solar system actually caused a fire (generally due to improper wiring or equipment malfunctions).
Will the Electricity Grid Become Optional?
For years, low-cost solar-plus-battery systems were seen as a distant possibility at best, a fringe technology not likely to be a threat to mainstream electricity delivery any time soon. By far, the limiting factor has been battery costs. But thanks to a confluence of factors playing out across the energy industry, the reality is that affordable battery storage is coming much sooner than most people realize. That approaching day of cheaper battery storage, when combined with solar PV, has the potential to fundamentally alter the electricity landscape.
Survey: Distributed Generation an Opportunity, Not a Threat to Utilities
Distributed generation is the most disruptive technology to the utility business model, but rather than look at it as a threat, most utility executives perceive it as an opportunity, according to a survey commissioned by engineering firm Siemens.
Readers Respond Day 6: Can We Reach 100 Percent Renewable Energy?
Several countries have announced ambitious goals to be powered completely by renewable energy, while other nations set smaller, incremental goals. These high aspirations have sparked quite a debate amongst industry experts, and we here at Renewable Energy World are curious to hear what you, our readers, have to say.
Utility-Backed Anti-Solar Bill on the Move in Kansas Statehouse
Last week, the Kansas House Energy Committee again considered taking up an anti-solar net metering bill (HB 2458) pushed by two major utilities Westar Energy and Kansas City Power & Light. The House committee passed an amended HB2458 that would make substantive, negative changes to solar net metering if passed through the state legislature. As amen
