Encapsulation, flexible substrates for thin-film photovoltaics subject of new report

NanoMarkets will release a new report on the market for encapsulation and flexible substrates for thin-film photovoltaics. Thin film solar cells require encapsulation to prevent air/water damage, but glass-encapsulation defeats the purpose of flexible thin film photovoltaics.

More Tesla solar-panel fire incidents emerge in wake of Walmart suit

One evening last year, David Burek noticed charred wood and a burning smell in his attic, near his young sons’ bedroom. He climbed a ladder and saw a melted connector wire from the solar panels installed on the roof of his North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, home. Firefighters rushed over and discovered that flames had burned through the shingles, the roof and a support beam. Luckily, a recent rain had doused it.

Venezuela uses a ROV to inspect Guri Reservoir infrastructure amidst water level decline

Venezuela uses a ROV to inspect Guri Reservoir infrastructure amidst water level decline

Venezuela's government is taking measures to inspect the infrastructure of the country’s main hydroelectric-related civil structure as rising temperatures, reduced precipitation and increased energy demand affect water levels at the 4,000-square-mile Guri Reservoir.  
Bioenergy? Not So Fast

Bioenergy? Not So Fast

There’s no one, set-in-stone blueprint for Germany’s energy transition. A lot of it will be made up along the way and plans will change as we learn more. One of the Energiewende’s pillars, for example, namely bioenergy, has just been subjected to a blistering critique by Germany’s foremost scientists. None other than the prestigious German National Academy of Sciences has […]

The marvelous effect and usage of the new energy—solar power

Among all the new energies, solar power is an essential part. Besides solar water heater, solar cars and solar inverter, what else magic usage of solar power? It is said that it is possible for us to live in the solar house. And what’s more, solar ship and solar barbecue will also be fresh and new.   There is a […]
California is planning floating wind farms offshore to boost its power supply – here’s how they work

California is planning floating wind farms offshore to boost its power supply – here’s how they work

Northern California has some of the strongest offshore winds in the U.S., with immense potential to produce clean energy. But it has a problem. Its continental shelf drops off quickly, making building traditional wind turbines directly on the seafloor costly if not impossible.
Preparing Renewable Energy Projects for El Niño

Preparing Renewable Energy Projects for El Niño

Even though many climate models hint that the coming El Niño may rival or even surpass the El Niño of 1997-98, the forecasted rainfall may still be unpredictable. However, what remains true is that the past decade of catastrophic wildfires and drought have left a parched landscape ill prepared for torrential rainfall, which can quickly create significant problems for solar and wind projects across the globe. This means site assessments and maintenance practices are a crucial aspect of El Niño preparation.
Wave Farm Planned to Harvest Ocean Energy

Wave Farm Planned to Harvest Ocean Energy

Minnesota-based energy technology company Independent Natural Resources Inc. (INRI) has successfully tested its new system for transferring ocean-wave power into renewable energy. Conducted in a wave tank at Texas A&M University's Offshore Technology Research Center, INRI's tests validate the results of several years of concepts and planning, showing the company's "Seadog" wave-pump technology has the potential to serve as a viable source of renewable power by harvesting renewable power from ocean waves.
