We believe in 24 hours of sun a world with 100% renewable energy. In order to turn vision into reality, a linking of energy systems needs to take place. With the consolidation of electricity, mobility and heating/cooling (energy sector integration), it will be possible to once and for all bid farewell to fossil fuels.

Why attracting new talent to the renewable energy industry matters now

Article | April 3, 2020

With a global pandemic in full swing, climate change is no longer the main emergency hitting the news. As countries all over world have introduced social distancing and isolation restrictions to limit the spread of the virus, carbon emissions have dropped as non-essential sectors have ceased their usual activities and travel has reduced as people stay at home. One estimate indicates that greenhouse gas emissions in Europe will drop by a staggering 24.4% this year, which equates to 388.8 million tons less carbon. We have seen a global drop in carbon emissions before following the most recent major financial crisis, however we must not forget that this was quickly followed by a 6% increase in global emissions in 2010.

How to Develop the US Offshore Wind Supply Chain

Article | March 10, 2020

In the longer term it is obvious that having significant manufacturing capacity in coastal US states makes more sense than making components elsewhere and sending them on long sea journeys to their installation site. However, in the short term the sector will require a great deal of imported machinery and skills. International free trade has been instrumental in creating a positive marketplace for offshore wind, by driving down costs and accelerating growth. Unfortunately, this has had contrary effects on local prosperity, where areas do not receive the benefits of investment. Public and political support for offshore wind developments can therefore be undermined.

What is community solar and is it better than installing solar panels on your home?

Article | February 24, 2020

The U.S. reached a monumental 2 million solar installations in 2019. As more people look to save money through solar energy, many different options for doing so are becoming available. The U.S. Department of Energy defines community solar as “a solar-electric system that… provides power and/or financial benefit to… multiple community members.” These voluntary programs allow community residents to enjoy the perks of solar power without the large initial investment. The solar panels and related equipment are set up in a central location, so residents don’t need to buy and install equipment on their personal properties. The power produced by these projects is then shared by a community, and the hardware is either owned by the community itself or by a third party (i.e. Jaton’s community solar projects in California).

5 New Solar Power Technologies in 2021

Article | April 5, 2021

In the last forty years, there has been a dynamic increase in the use of solar energy in the United States. As recently as 2018, an additional 10.6 GW of solar power was harnessed, bringing the country's total use up to 64.2 GW. Yet this apparently successful addition still only contributes 1.6% of the total electricity used across the States. However, with many new solar power technologies on the horizon, the increase could soon be much greater.
