Avoiding Wildlife Impacts from Renewable Energy in Europe

| March 14, 2019

Renewable energy generated from wind, sunlight, water, biomass, and geothermal heat is the new technique to satisfy the need of electric consumption in Europe and other parts of the world. It reduces the use of natural oil, gas, and coal, which pollutes air and water in making of power. Renewable energy does not pollute the natural resources and environment but has an impact peculiarly different from the electricity produced with natural extraction.

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.

More Solar Ready To Help Power Pumping For SA Water

Article | April 5, 2021

SA Water’s electricity supply is about to become greener and cheaper again with the addition of another major solar power system, and an even bigger installation to soon follow. The utility says more 7,300 solar panels installed at the second pump station on its pipeline between Swan Reach and Stockwell are now connected and ready to go. “The Swan Reach to Stockwell Pipeline spans across more than 50 kilometres inland from the mighty Murray across to the northern Barossa area, and therefore requires significant energy to pump clean, safe drinking water across such large distances,” said SA Water’s Nicola Murphy While the total capacity of this new solar farm wasn’t provided, Ms. Murphy said it will generate approximately 5,224 megawatt hours of clean, green energy annually. There’s more solar energy to come for this section of pipeline, with a further 16,000 panels currently being connected at the first pump station.

The Next Renewable Energy Source Could Be Rain

Article | April 5, 2021

The quest for the next source of renewable energy is well underway, with no natural phenomenon overlooked. We have already harnessed the power of flowing water, wind, and sunlight, and the search for the next clean source of energy is far from over. The latest potential breakthrough in renewable energy comes in the form of rain. The rain has not been getting a lot of attention in renewable energy circles perhaps because it would be challenging to harness its electricity-producing potential. Yet attempts are being made, and in the latest breakthrough, U.S. and Hong Kong researchers have managed to produce 140 volts of power from one single raindrop. That’s enough to light 100 LED lights for a short while.

Which Solar Panels are the Most Efficient?

Article | April 5, 2021

SunPower's solar panels are widely acknowledged to be the industry's most efficient1 with an ability to convert the most sunlight into usable energy. But the benefit for homeowners goes beyond SunPower’s solar panel technology. While other solar companies are hooked up to hybrid systems that use parts from several different companies, SunPower's panels are linked to integrated systems designed solely by their own manufacturers to absorb more light for more power.
