Nubanusit Neighborhood & Farm, New Hampshire's first green residential development, has been awarded LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for a single-family home in its neighborhood. This is the first single-family home in the state to receive Platinum certification, the highest possible rating. Only 44 other single-family homes in the nation have received this rating. The home uses less than half the energy of a standard house, and significantly reduces water use.
Open Energy's SolarSave SP 480 Roofing Membrane product has received the Underwriter's Laboratory (UL) 1703 listing, the American National Standard for safety for photovoltaic modules and panels.
Renewable Portfolio Standards, which require a certain percentage of power to be derived from renewable energy sources, have been the major policy driver in U.S. states to promote renewable energy. A new trend is emerging, however, where similar RPS requirements are being adopted in specific cities as a way for them to clean up and diversify their power supplies. Los Angeles is the latest city to make big step in this direction.
A new university campus in California will be the first in the country to be designed entirely on "green principles."
Shell Solar will introduce two new lines of monocrystalline photovoltaic (PV) modules in Europe starting this Autumn. According to the company, each new offering will have a power output capacity six percent higher than its predecessors despite the surface areas remaining unchanged.
In recent years, solar has seen an unprecedented rise in installations, both on a large and small scale. Energy storage, however, hasn’t quite kept pace. Though home batteries present significant advantages to households with solar panels, many consumers spring for the panels, seeing the economic and environmental benefit, but choose not to install a home battery to store the unused solar energy they generate.
Clean, renewable energy power generation gains a major boost when states like California, Texas, New York, and others make a commitment to sourcing a certain percentage of their power from renewable energy technologies. The same holds true to for large cities. The city of Los Angeles is the latest to call for more renewable energy use - a move that will likely spur new projects in the area.
The simplest things often stand in the way of progress. A case in point is energy data and battery storage. For utility customers to understand how batteries could lower their electric bills, they need to understand how their building uses energy throughout the day. But in many places across the country, it’s extremely difficult, if not impossible for customers to get access to that basic information. In many cases, utilities don’t even have the data. When the data is available, it can be time consuming or costly to retrieve.
Utilities worry about a lot of things, such as keeping the lights on, earning a return for investors, and making regulators and customers happy with their service. Now there is a new worry: How can they protect customers from what one utility refers to as “mental fatigue?” In this particular case, the utility raises the issue as it prepares to […]
