‘Hydricity’ and Solar: Clean Tech’s Newest Hybrid

By | 2016-01-25T09:24:38+00:00 December 29th, 2015|News, Solar|Comments Off on ‘Hydricity’ and Solar: Clean Tech’s Newest Hybrid

Researchers from Purdue University have unveiled a new hybrid solar concept that they claim could produce renewable, carbon-free solar energy 24 hours a day. The model combines so-called 'hydricity' - a process by which hydrogen atoms are separated from super-heated water to produce energy - with more traditional solar thermal processes. The result is a system that could generate solar energy during the day while simultaneously [...]

The $1 Trillion Solar Pledge You Haven’t Heard Of

By | 2016-01-25T09:24:44+00:00 December 28th, 2015|News, Clean Tech|Comments Off on The $1 Trillion Solar Pledge You Haven’t Heard Of

The renewable energy world has been basking in the success of the Paris Climate Conference for the past few weeks. However, the most significant solar energy related news might have come on the conference's first day and has so far gone by relatively unnoticed. Amid the exciting, ground-breaking creation of a global 'high ambition coalition' and the setting of 1.5C as a target for limiting climate change, India and France [...]

On Friday, Dec. 18th, United States president Barack Obama signed into law a bill that sees the U.S. Investment Tax Credit (ITC) system extended beyond 2020. The ITC, which had been scheduled to end in 2016, provides tax credits for homeowners and commercial business owners who want to install solar renewable energy systems on their property. While the extension of the ITC extension is obviously good news [...]

Solar Adds Thousands Of Dollars To Property Value

By | 2016-01-25T09:25:07+00:00 December 22nd, 2015|News, Solar|Comments Off on Solar Adds Thousands Of Dollars To Property Value

As solar PV and solar thermal heating systems become more affordable, more cost-effective and more popular, it has become possible to examine the resale value that solar installations add to residential properties on a large scale. By comparing bills with traditional, non-solar heat or electricity sources, it has always been a relatively easy task to examine month-by-month savings made by solar systems. Until recently, however, [...]

Solar Sector Growth Hits Record High In U.S.

By | 2016-01-25T09:25:14+00:00 December 21st, 2015|News, Solar|Comments Off on Solar Sector Growth Hits Record High In U.S.

A report from GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) suggests that the final months of 2015 will be a record-breaking quarter for solar sector growth in the United States. If correct, this puts 2015 in line to be the best year in U.S. history for the solar sector. Second quarter figures already broke all previous records, and continued growth in the third quarter suggests that this trend is set to continue until the end of the [...]

Remove Snow From Solar Panels: Tips

By | 2016-01-25T09:25:20+00:00 December 18th, 2015|Solar, Tips|Comments Off on Remove Snow From Solar Panels: Tips

In colder climates, winter has long been viewed as a major hindrance for solar panel owners. In order to maximise exposure to sunlight, solar panels are typically positioned on high, often inaccessible rooftops. While the inaccessibility of the panels is usually not a problem for most of the year, solar panel owners can be left scratching their heads when they leave their homes and look up to see their hard [...]

Global carbon dioxide emissions have dipped, a paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change has claimed. According to the journal, growth in carbon dioxide emissions slowed to a crawl over the past two years, despite continued economic growth. In 2015, global carbon dioxide emissions not only remained stagnant, but actually fell slightly. The news has reinforced the optimism being generated by the Paris Climate Convention (COP21) which, despite some recent [...]
