California Formally Adopts Performance-Based Solar Incentives

California Formally Adopts Performance-Based Solar Incentives

There's been a flurry of solar activity in the Golden State over the past couple weeks. Last week, most attention in the solar community was on the signing into law of SB1, the Million Solar Roofs bill. Following that move, the California Solar Initiative (CSI), a closely related solar program, was formally adopted by state utility regulators.
Why Wind And Cleantech Companies Have Left Digital-Social Marketing Power On Idle – And Why They Should Stop

Why Wind And Cleantech Companies Have Left Digital-Social Marketing Power On Idle – And Why They Should Stop

Last year, we released “Social Wind,” the first-ever study of social media use by major players in the wind industry. If you didn’t see it then, it’s still worth a read.  In short, we found that while wind companies were on the major social media platforms, they largely use them as cheap distribution channels, not engagement tools. Social media platforms, and the closely related content and inbound marketing tactics, are built to facilitate two-way conversations.

Q-Cells AG to Invest in CIGS Thin-Film PV Technology

Q-Cells AG is investing in a new photovoltaic (PV) technology to complement its current technology portfolio by joining forces with Solibro AB from Uppsala, Sweden, to set up Solibro GmbH, in which Q-Cells will hold a share of 67.5%.
Britain Invests in Power from Ocean Waves

Britain Invests in Power from Ocean Waves

One of the best-known companies in the field of wave-powered generating stations, WaveGen has attracted government funding in Britain of £1.67 million toward the development of the world's first floating mini power station using wave power.
Taking Nature’s Cue for Cheaper Solar Power

Taking Nature’s Cue for Cheaper Solar Power

Solar cell technology developed by Massey University's Nanomaterials Research Centre in New Zealand may one day enable the country's residents to generate electricity from sunlight at a tenth of the cost of current silicon-based photovoltaic solar cells. Dr. Wayne Campbell and researchers in the Centre have developed a range of colored dyes for use in dye-sensitized solar cells.
Going Solar: From the Millennials to Baby Boomers

Going Solar: From the Millennials to Baby Boomers

As we continue installing thousands of rooftop solar power systems on homes across the United States, we continue to gain a deeper understanding of what motivates people to pull the trigger and go solar. While the decreasing cost of solar is the all-important driver, the incentive to install a solar array at home comes from a wide variety of needs and desires. These motivations are closely related to generational trends.  We’ve identified […]
How To Make Briquettes From Daily Wastes

How To Make Briquettes From Daily Wastes

Waste a resource to energy Waste not, want not. Waste is potentially a resource. From traditional point of view, the daily waste has been regarded as worthless however from the point of view of resource efficiency, the daily wastes can be recovered and recycled and reused at every procedures of production and consumption. Wastes classification Wastes can be classified into […]
Storage Advance May Boost Solar Thermal Energy Potential

Storage Advance May Boost Solar Thermal Energy Potential

Engineers at Oregon State University have identified a new approach for the storage of concentrated solar thermal energy, to reduce its cost and make it more practical for wider use.
Solar Labeling: 2017 Changes

Solar Labeling: 2017 Changes

When solar labeling first surfaced around 1980, there were no set standards. Over time, the National Electrical Code (NEC) included solar systems and labeling in its standard, which started with the 1984 edition, with the most current revision being the 2017 edition.
Thin Film Solar Takes to the Skies and Beyond

Thin Film Solar Takes to the Skies and Beyond

Uni-solar has landed some truly out-of-this-world contracts lately. The U.S. Government, and its contractors have taken a particular interest in the possibility that thin-film solar photovoltaics (PV) could play a major role in the development of a missile shield over the United States and other airborne, or space-related applications.
