Half a dozen EU member states are pursuing various strategies to incorporate hydrogen into their net-zero plans.
Agrivoltaics is a method that simultaneously uses agricultural land for food production and PV power generation. The energy transformation requires a massive expansion, resulting in high demand of space. In most countries, this issue is not resolvable due to mounting ground systems, therefore fertile land is very valuable and limited. This method solves this conflict by enabling food production and electricity generation

Introduction It is now a well-established trend. After the switch to larger wafer sizes played out in 2019, this year has seen virtually all of the biggest PV manufacturers introduce new modules in dimensions above the 2-meter mark, and with power ratings in excess of 500 W – in some cases, as high as 800
In a new study focused on Denmark, a global leader in wind energy – a relatively mature and low-cost renewable technology – researchers found that government policies have been the primary driver of that industry’s growth and development. In emerging renewable energy industries, are producers’ decisions to shut down or upgrade aging equipment influenced more

Earlier this year, the California Energy Commission (CEC) published a $20 million solicitation to fund research projects for the deployment of long-duration energy storage. The objective was to develop a clear understanding of the role that long-duration energy storage (10 hours or greater) can play in helping to meet the state’s mandates to decarbonize the electricity sector
offshore wind
Global offshore wind installed capacity will reach 228 GW by 2030, according to projections from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Of the currently installed offshore wind capacity in the world, 90 per cent is located in Europe, mostly in the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. This is attributed to regional cooperation on interconnection,

Solar Panels
Solar professional and project developer John Fitzgerald Weaver explains to us how we fail at solar power generation projections. Projected lives of solar power plants are 50% longer than a decade ago. This is because we test our solar panels aggressively, and laser focus on facility failures once we build them. This has led some to highly rate the safety of solar power
