Global Warming Causing California Utilities To Start Fires

Don’t argue. It’s science. What are you some kind of science-hater? Everyone knows California wildfires are caused by Mother Earth being angry at us because we use too much of the white man’s polluting energy and not enough of the…

Energy at risk: the impact of climate change on supply and costs

(CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change) The energy sector is not only cause, but also victim of climate change. As global temperatures rise, cooling demand is increasing. But in the face of an increased energy demand in the hot season, energy reliability may be jeopardized, due to climate change impacts on the energy system, especially in South Asia and Latin America. A review paper on Nature Energy shows how extreme climate-related events are affecting the efficiency of energy infrastructures and threatening renewable technologies.

Trump Slams Biden’s Energy Plan In Pennsylvania: ‘Economic Death Sentence’

Speaking during the first of three campaign rallies in Pennsylvania Monday morning, President Donald Trump slammed former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris for their policy positions on American energy. “I want to begin today by discussing an…

Solar is Now the Cheapest Electricity in History and Just Met 100% of Demand in South Australia For First Time

South Australia has met 100% of its electricity demands with solar energy for the first time over the weekend—most of it coming not from solar farms but PV panels mounted on rooftops. A combination of cloudless skies, low energy demand, and mild temperatures helped create conditions for 76% of circulating power to be generated by […]

Powering the future: New insights into how alkali-metal doped flexible solar cells work

A group of scientists has discovered that the amount of alkali metal introduced into crystals of flexible thin-film solar cells influences the path that charge carriers take to traverse between electrodes, thereby affecting the light-to-electricity conversion efficiency of the solar cell. Given the immense application potential that such solar cells have today, this finding could be key to ushering in a green future.

Breakthrough 3D Solar Panel Design Increases Light Absorption By 125% – A Potential Game-Changer

As the world transitions away from fossil fuels, a wide consensus of experts believes that of all the green technologies available, solar energy is among the most sustainable—and cheapest. Research innovation is pulling down the costs of new equipment, raising efficiently levels, and making photovoltaic panels more durable—and even recyclable. Recently, a new upgrade developed […]

Biden’s Slow-Motion Plan To Destroy America’s Energy Industry

President Trump had several good moments in the final debate, as Andrea Widburg noted in her excellent curation here. In my own view, the standout moment came last, when Trump just drew out Joe Biden on energy, first on fracking, and then…

Turning streetwear into solar power plants

(Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA)) Researchers at Empa and ETH Zurich succeeded in developing a material that works like a luminescent solar concentrator and can even be applied to textiles. This opens up numerous possibilities for producing energy directly where it is needed, i.e. in the use of everyday electronics.
