Cost Reduction Practices – when to lock a power deal

By Rafael Herzberg Cost Reduction Practices – when to lock a power dealThe most common way for deregulated energy users to buy energy is to consult the market on the eve of the current contract termination. I developed a method that proved to be very efficient. Monitor the market many months before the end of…

By mmillikin Volkswagen Group of America (VWGoA) has joined The Automated Vehicle Safety Consortium (AVSC). The group, which includes automakers and technology companies, is focused on jointly developing standards and best practices for testing and deploying highly automated vehicles for the future. It’s important that the industry work together in the development of standards and…

Punching holes in opaque solar cells turns them transparent

Researchers in Korea have found an effective and inexpensive strategy to transform solar cells from opaque to transparent. Existing transparent solar cells tend to have a reddish hue and lower efficiency, but by punching tiny holes on crystalline silicon wafers, it allows light through without coloring. The holes are then strategically spaced, so the human…
