How Solar Helps the Environment

Article | February 25, 2020

Despite advances in technology, the world is still heavily dependent on fossil fuels like coal and oil for energy production. Our lifestyles require a lot of electricity running through our homes, but fossil fuels are finite and will eventually run out. Sunshine, on the other hand, is plentiful and will not run out anytime soon. We can make the decision today to switch to a cleaner and smarter energy solution by using solar panels to power our homes. Here are some of the top ways solar energy is better for the environment.

Renewable Fuels Will Help Pave the Way to a 100% Renewable Energy

Article | February 25, 2020

The need to reduce carbon emissions is real. In 2018, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that global emissions would need to reach net-zero (or carbon-neutral) by 2050 to prevent severe climate change impacts. Electricity is a major contributor—electricity generation was responsible for approximately 33% of total CO2 emissions in the U.S. in 2018. Electric utilities stand to play a critical role in reducing carbon emissions. Many are up to the task of decarbonizing their operations and supplying carbon-free or carbon-neutral energy to their customers.

A Clean Energy Source of the Future?

You know things are getting exciting when German bureaucrats are turning emotional, as happened one month ago in Berlin: “Hydrogen is the shit! And we need it desperately.” Thomas Herdan, the bureaucrat in question, is a prominent policymaker in the German Economic Ministry and, until that moment, was known for analytical thoughtfulness rather than for enthusiastic outcries. His excitement, however, is shared by governments and businesses around the world. The International Energy Agency IEA estimates that every year, the world’s governments pour $700 million into R&D for hydrogen applications alone. A few months ago, the U.S. announced $40 million in funding for 29 hydrogen projects across the country. As IEA puts it, hydrogen currently has “unprecedented political and business momentum”.

2020 Trends That Will Make Waves In The Energy Industry

Article | February 25, 2020

In the renewable world, energy is generated by weather and the amount of energy that can be produced depends on the current conditions. Energy storage can ensure a power supply is maintained when weather conditions are not optimal for generating energy. While energy storage products have already been introduced to all levels of the market there are several technology hurdles to overcome before energy storage will reach maximum potential. We believe there will be great advancements in 2020 on:
