In a historic moment for India, it has been reported this week that the price of solar power has reached parity with coal for the first time. For certain parts of the country, solar power is actually cheaper than coal. As a nation famously dependent on coal as a source of power, the increasingly cheap price of solar energy is being hailed as a turning point in [...]

Saving the environment one rooftop solar panel at a time sounds great, but really homeowners are just as concerned with how their renewable energy system will save or make them money (or both!). Solar energy - both solar PV for electricity and solar thermal heating - make for great ways to achieve both of these goals, offering homeowners excellent financial incentives and rewards while helping the environment. Installing solar thermal [...]

Their survey of over 10,000 homeowners offers a comprehensive overview of what homeowners want from their homes, as well as what they are unsatisfied with. Topping of the list of things homeowners were unsatisfied with was their homes' energy efficiency. [...]

It's always interesting to see not only how, but why businesses go green or make the move towards solar and other renewable energy sources. If the business in question is a construction company, the transition becomes even more interesting and important, because a construction company's decision to be more conscious of the environment has the potential to have a huge impact on the homes they build, and [...]

Many of you may already be familiar with Canada's Energuide rating system for homes. It's essentially a government operated rating system that determines how energy efficient your home is. It's a great resource, and something that is still probably underused by homeowners here in Canada. Back in my home country of Ireland, we have a similar evaluation system, albeit with one major change; if you're [...]

Whether you are a D.I.Y. genius or someone tends to hire a whole team of construction workers to do the work for you, when building a home there are a lot of decisions that need to be made. You're likely to have a strict budget and short timeframe for getting everything finished. And yet somehow, even when you thoroughly plan for every eventuality, obstacles and challenges will still spring [...]

Yesterday we took a look at the history of solar thermal energy, so for the sake of symmetry today we will be looking into the future (or should I say one possible future) of clean energy. The possible future in question is the brainchild of Liu Zhenya, chairman of the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC). China is after getting a habit for thinking big when it comes to [...]

Today I will be taking a look back through history to look at the origins, development and current state of affairs of solar thermal heating technology. History is somewhat of a passion of mine - there is just so much to be gained from examining the past - so I was very excited to write about this topic. However, when doing research online, I found that there [...]
