A wave of scientific breakthroughs is going to make solar energy cheaper than energy generated from fossils

Article | March 9, 2020

Human pollution such as burning fossil fuels has been causing global environmental change for decades. Climate change impacts leave us no time to hesitate before taking urgent actions towards a more sustainable life. Going solar can be one of these actions. Luckily, scientists all over the world work on new materials that are going to make solar panels cheaper and more efficient. Australian and Chinese engineers experiment with a crystalline structure perovskite. Though being rather promising, this material is also very fragile. That is why it is planned to be used in tandem with silicon panels, which are more durable.

ADVANTAGES OF RENEWABLE RESOURCES AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Article | March 19, 2020

This article explores the benefits of renewable energy classified into a variety of types that includes solar energy solutions, hydroelectric, wind, geothermal, and biomass. Mostly, Wind Turbines and Solar Panels are essential to every area as it increases the health value of a community. Promoting health benefits is highly recognized as it can boost a possibility that can turn around the capability of the non-renewable as it will be more efficient and environmental. However, some things could lead to advrerse outcomes, such as losing revenue coming from known industries, but on the contrary, lots of positive impacts that will generate significant improvement. The following indicates the advantages and how it is promoting energy efficiency in society.

Are Solar Workers ‘Essential’? The Industry May Soon Find Out

Article | March 23, 2020

The U.S. solar industry is preparing to argue that its workers are essential to the economy as it copes with a growing pile of government-mandated shutdowns to combat the spread of COVID-19. State-, county- and city-wide shutdowns, which are already in place in California, the nation's largest solar market, as well as New York and Dallas County, Texas, largely called for employees of “nonessential” sectors to stay home; the orders now cover about 20 percent of U.S. residents, according to the New York Times.

Why Renewable Energy Is a Technical Reality But An Economic Disaster

Article | February 23, 2020

2020 may turn out to be the year of the battery. The Trump administration has made grid-level battery backup a focus of its Energy Storage Grand Challenge -- an effort to create an all-American supply chain for advanced battery technologies. Meanwhile, Texas, which is the only state to run its own electricity grid, is offering up to $9000 a megawatt-hour for peak summer battery power. And on the other side of the world in South Australia, Tesla has been asked to up the capacity of its mammoth battery in the desert to 193.5 megawatt-hours, or about double the storage capacity of the entire Texas state grid.
