A new study proposes how thermoradiative technology could be used to make "anti-solar" cells that would work at night. These “anti-solar” cells could revolutionize renewable energy and make it far more proficient.
Tesla has released a giant new version of its latest home solar system – a 15.4 kW solar system suitable for 4,000+ sq ft homes. Tesla also recently launched the third version of its solar roof tiles and started to ramp-up installations.
The station would capture the Sun's energy that never makes it all the way down to Earth. The energy would be converted into microwaves or lasers and be beamed back Earth to be used for our consumption.
Orsted, a Danish company, anticipates that the scale and efficiency of wind farms at sea can play a crucial role to supply heavy industry with green hydrogen. Hydrogen is one of the few fuels that can burn hot enough to make steel and cement.
Tesla has launched the third iteration of its solar roof tile for residential home use. On balance, the Solar Roof provides more energy generation than a similarly sized roof retrofitted with traditional tiles.
A new forecast finds that the world’s total renewable-based power capacity will grow by 50 per cent between 2019 and 2024. This is driven by cost reductions and concerted government policy efforts.
The most powerful floating solar PV plant in Europe was inaugurated in southern France on Friday (18 October), marking another milestone in the development of solar energy.
Renewables produced 29.5 TeraWatt-hours in July, August, and September, while fossil fuels only produced 29.1 TW-hr and that less than 1% of the UK's electricity came from coal during the quarter.
Researchers at Columbia University, U.S. have developed a way to harness more power from singlet fission to increase the efficiency of solar cells, providing a tool to help push forward the development of next-generation devices.
In the first half of 2019, Scottish wind generated enough electricity to power the equivalent of 4.47 million homes, almost double the number of homes there.
The scientists adapted a solar panel that not only generated power, but used some of the heat energy to distill and purify sea water. The idea could make a major difference in sunny climates with limited water supplies.
A new report shows there was more biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar and wind capacity installed on the US grid in April 2019 than plants set up to burn the fossil fuel.
