New light on organic solar cells

Efficient and environmentally friendly solar cells are required for a transition to a fossil-free energy supply. Researchers at have now mapped how energy flows in organic solar cells, something that previously had been unknown. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Solar Energy News — ScienceDaily

Is Australia ready for EV fleets?

By Yamary Gonzalez I don’t think Australia is ready for electric fleet in its full capacity, with the changes in the NEM, I feel like it us too complex to manage the efficiencies in charger-vehicle-grid. Thoughts? Maybe Batteries as part of the solution? I am sharing a link to an article outlining 3 important items…

Maple Seeds Inspire Efficient Spinning Microdrone

The relatively simple and now quite pervasive quadrotor design for drones emphasizes performance and manufacturability, which is fine, but there are some tradeoffs—namely, endurance.Brought to you by: EV Driven Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Electric Vehicles

Sungrow unveils modular inverter for utility-scale solar PV plants

By Renewable Energy World Sungrow said it is now offering a modular inverter for utility-scale solar PV plants. The “1+X” Modular Inverter features a 1.1 MW single unit at minimum and may be expanded to 8.8 MW by combining eight units together. The plug-and-play function, Sungrow said, is intended to reduce maintenance time and allow…

Green hydrogen is the missing link in our drive to net-zero

By Renewable Energy World Sponsored content from Renewable UK If we weren’t already aware, the release of the latest set of IPCC reports (and the even starker picture they paint compared to previous iterations) has made abundantly clear to governments, businesses, and society as a whole the dangers of climate change and the urgent need…

Using RNG to Power EVs Reduces Total US GHG Emissions by 25%

By Alan Rozich Synopsis Going “all in” with electric vehicles (EVs) has the potential to significantly reduce energy resource consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the US and other countries. A scenario where EVs are powered with energy produced using RNG (renewable natural gas) is compelling. An EV initiative by itself is an energy…

From efficiency to sufficiency

By FORESIGHT Contributor From FORESIGHT Climate & Energy, Watt Matters is a podcast all about the energy transition and the shift to a decarbonised economy. Lawmakers around the globe have spoken extensively about energy efficiency. However, there is an increasing interest in policy and academic circles around sufficiency: these are often labelled as demand-side measures…

Gamesa Electric to unveil new central inverter at Intersolar Europe

By Kelsey Misbrener Gamesa Electric will showcase its renewed family of high-power inverters for solar and energy storage applications at the upcoming Intersolar Europe exhibition in Munich. Gamesa Electric Proteus is a central inverter up to 4700 kVA that reduces the LCoE of renewable projects thanks to its efficiency, reliability and power density. “We are…

NREL advances green hydrogen production method

By Renewable Energy World Perovskite materials may hold the potential to play an important role in a process to produce hydrogen in a renewable manner, according to analysis from scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The NREL team analyzed an emerging water-splitting technology called solar thermochemical hydrogen (STCH) production. The technique potentially can…
