The fight for basic energy has taken a new twist with news from Scotland that they’ve increased local renewable power owned by communities. That is a big deal, and they’ve already exceeded their 2020 target, too.
Two Chinese firms are planning to build a solar power plant in the exclusion zone around the Chernobyl nuclear reactor an area off limits since a devastating explosion contaminated the entire region with radiation in 1986.
The Ontario government announced Tuesday that they are cancelling the next round of renewable energy contracts for the province. They hope to save $3.8 billion in energy costs, in order to lighten the load on hydro customers.
Solar power is one of the key technologies for renewable sources of energy. Solar panels are limited by the amount of sunlight they absorb. Getting panels to hold more power is seen as key. Here could panels be developed so they grow in power?
Interest in alternative forms of power generating technology continues and countries with high levels of sunshine are ripe for solar power. One such country is India, although the use of solar power carries a risk: monkeys.
The next generation of solar cells is being developed and they have special crystals at their heart. The new generation of solar cells are intended to be more stable and can power light-emitting diodes, lasers and sensors.
The search for alternative forms of power, necessary to future-proof electricity generation in the face of dwindling sources of oil, has led to biological life forms. A new development is a so-called bio-solar cell.
The Barefoot College, a non-governmental organization, is working with rural India's women to train and empower them to install and repair off-grid solar solutions, and solve India's difficult electricity situation.
With the use of solar energy people can be saving economically as well as helping to save the environment from unnecessary pollution. It is with that thought in mind that the new Low-Income Solar Act being introduced in Washington D.C.
Renewable energy is something that scientists, environmentalists and business people all want to improve. Inventors at the Glint Photonics start-up group claim they have made a breakthrough with a sun-concentrating device.
