Wind power or wind energy is the use of air flow through wind turbines to provide the mechanical power to turn electric generators and traditionally to do other work, like milling or pumping. Wind poweris a sustainable and renewable alternative to burning fossil fuels, and has much less effect on the environment. Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.

How to plan for a safer and smarter energy storage market?

Article | February 18, 2020

According to DNV GL’s 2019 Energy Transition Outlook, the combination of storage for the grid and storage available in vehicle-to-grid systems will exceed 40 TWh in 2050 worldwide. Storage and in particular battery solutions will help propel the transition to a decarbonized, electrified energy future. The energy storage market presents a tremendous opportunity for project developers and lenders worldwide. The drivers are clear and global: the rapid electrification of the transport, buildings and manufacturing sectors, the need for smooth integration of variable renewables, whether for a wind farm or industrial solar systems, and financial flexibility for both providers and customers.

5 Reasons Why Going Solar is the Right Choice in 2020

Article | March 3, 2020

If you’ve been considering adding solar energy to your home, 2020 is the perfect time to do so. Last year, solar owners were able to receive maximum benefits from the federal solar investment tax credit (ITC), which gives homeowners an opportunity to receive a tax credit towards income taxes after their solar system is fully installed and operating. While 2019 was the last year to get the full 30% federal solar tax credit, there are still many great reasons to add solar to your home in 2020.

Solar Greenhouses Generate Electricity & Grow Crops At The Same Time…

Article | March 9, 2020

The first crops of tomatoes and cucumbers grown inside electricity-generating solar greenhouses were as healthy as those raised in conventional greenhouses, signaling that “smart” greenhouses hold great promise for dual-use farming and renewable electricity production. “We have demonstrated that ‘smart greenhouses’ can capture solar energy for electricity without reducing plant growth, which is pretty exciting,” said Michael Loik, professor of environmental studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and lead author on a paper that appears in the current issue of the American Geophysical Union’s journal Earth’s Future.
