New Technology will Enable Properties to Share Solar Energy

In the UK alone, some 1.5 million homes are equipped with solar panels, and it has been estimated that by 2020 the figure could soar to 10 million, with the prospect of lower energy bills for consumers and massive reductions in CO2 emissions. Now, a University of Huddersfield researcher is developing new technologies that could […]

Energy From Renewable Sources Passed Another Milestone in UK

Britain made another history on the eve of election day, when power from wind, solar, hydro and wood pellet burning supplied 50.7 per cent of the UK’s total energy consumption.

How Batteries Could Revolutionize Renewable Energy

By: Justin Worland All over California, there’s evidence of the state’s goal to lead the country in renewable energy. Enormous farms of shiny solar panels have popped up across southern California, and gigantic wind turbines dot the landscape outside nearly all the major cities. There are less flashy—and less visible—investments in renewables going on, too. Tucked […]

Storing Wind Power in a Giant Flow Battery

By: Tessel Renzenbrink A 100 m tall wind turbine is being erected at the German Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT) test facility. Once construction is completed the testing of one of Germany’s largest batteries can begin. Under the header of RedoxWind project, ICT has been developing a large-scale redox-flow battery. The aim is to […]

Home Energy Storage Batteries Lose to Grid-Connected Solar on Environmental Impact

By: Stephen Edelstein At first glance, renewable-energy sources like solar power and energy-storage battery packs seem like a logical match. Energy storage allows excess power collected by solar panels to be stored for later use, addressing the intermittent nature of solar power. It’s a concept that has already won over policymakers, electric utilities, and some automakers. […]
