Shepard Steel turns on new solar energy system; early production exceeds estimates

Hartford CT (SPX) Nov 07, 2019
Shepard Steel, a structural steel and miscellaneous metals company serving the Greater Hartford region since 1956, has announced that a 611-kilowatt (kW) DC solar energy system installed on its headquarters went live on July 23, and has exceeded production estimates in the months since. In the first three months of operation, the 1,674-panel solar energy system generated approximately 200

Solar and wind energy preserve groundwater for drought, agriculture

Princeton NJ (SPX) Nov 07, 2019
Solar and wind farms are popping up around the country to lower carbon emissions, and these renewables also have another important effect: keeping more water in the ground. A new Princeton University-led study in Nature Communications is among the first to show that solar and wind energy not only enhance drought resilience, but also aid in groundwater sustainability. Using drought-pr

Five Reasons to Sell SunPower® Solar

UK needs to act to prevent electric vehicle battery waste mountain

Birmingham UK (SPX) Nov 07, 2019
Recycling technologies for end-of-life lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are not keeping pace with the rapid rise of electric vehicles, storing up a potentially huge waste management problem for the future, according to a new study. A review of lithium ion battery recycling led by the University of Birmingham suggests that, while electric vehicles (EVs) offer a solution for cutting pollution, g

Mainstream Renewable closes $580M wind and solar financing deal in Chile

Dublin, Ireland (SPX) Nov 06, 2019
Global wind and solar development company, Mainstream Renewable Power, has reached financial close for the first phase of its wholly-owned and fully-contracted giant 1.3 gigawatt “Andes Renovables” wind and solar power generation platform in Chile. The Company has successfully raised USD$580 million in debt to fund construction of phase one of what is one of Latin American’s biggest wind a

What are California’s Massive Power Outages Like?

Here’s how one Northern California family spent 48 hours without electricity during a mandatory power outage.

In and out with 10-minute electrical vehicle recharge

University Park PA (SPX) Oct 31, 2019

Electric vehicle owners may soon be able to pull into a fueling station, plug their car in, go to the restroom, get a cup of coffee and in 10 minutes, drive out with a fully charged battery, according to a team of engineers. “We demonstrated that we can charge an electrical vehicle in ten minutes for a 200 to 300 mile range,” said Chao-Yang Wang, William E. Diefenderfer Chair of mechanical

Perovskites discovery promises better, cheaper solar cell

Washington (UPI) Oct 31, 2019
Scientists have gained new insights into the properties of perovskites, the crystalline materials used to make solar cells. The breakthrough promises the development of more efficient, stronger and cheaper solar panels. In the labs of McGill University in Canada, scientists used a special instrument called the multi-dimensional electronic spectrometer to observe the movements of electro

Promising discovery could lead to a better, cheaper solar cell

Montreal, Canada (SPX) Nov 01, 2019
McGill University researchers have gained tantalizing new insights into the properties of perovskites, one of the world’s most promising materials in the quest to produce a more efficient, robust and cheaper solar cell. In a study published in Nature Communications, the researchers used a multi-dimensional electronic spectrometer (MDES) – a unique instrument hand-built at McGill – to obser

New technique lets researchers map strain in next-gen solar cells

Seattle WA (SPX) Nov 01, 2019
People can be good at hiding strain, and we’re not alone. Solar cells have the same talent. For a solar cell, physical strain within its microscopic crystalline structure can interrupt its core function – converting sunlight into electricity – by essentially “losing” energy as heat. For an emerging type of solar cell, known as lead halide perovskites, reducing and taming this loss is key to impr
