During the crisis, Europe’s historic growth in wind and solar saves €11 billion in gas expenditures
According to a recent analysis by E3G and Ember, since the start of the war, wind and solar energy have produced 25% of the EU's electricity, with record growth from only last year saving the region €11 billion in gas…
Solar industry warns of slowdown due to supply chain disruptions
As a result of global supply chain concerns and the possibility of additional U.S. tariffs on solar panel imports from Southeast Asia, the solar industry is forecasting a major slowdown in project installations. Southern Co., a U.S. power operator, said…
Is there a second chance for concentrated solar power?
To use an old sports cliche, it isn't about how you start, but rather how you end that matters. Concentrated solar power's beginnings in the United States may be characterized as a splutter. In the United States, CSP has an…
PNU researchers have shown how radiative coolers may lower the thermal stress on photovoltaic cells
The power conversion efficiency of a multi-junction solar cell was improved by incorporating a radiative cooler, as shown by researchers at Pusan National University in South Korea. When exposed to the sun's rays for long periods of time, solar cells…
Renewable Energy – Advantages that Hardly Anyone Knows About
Humanity in all parts of the world is subject to climate change and faces the challenge of combating it. The effects are now more or less noticeable, so that renewable energies from water, sun, biomass, geothermal energy and wind have…
Wind and solar power in the EU aren’t doing enough to mitigate global warming since coal use continues
According to research, new renewable energy deployed in the EU last year primarily replaced expensive gas power rather than more polluting coal, but still fell short of what is required to minimize global warming. According to Ember, a London-based NGO,…
