PV Leads The Way As Renewables Threatens Coal-fired Power

In most parts of the world today, renewables are the lowest-cost source of power generation. The latest study by IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) shows that it’s the end for coal-fired power. This points to how cheap renewables can power the electrification needed to reduce carbon emissions from transport. Continuing falling solar module prices and…

LCOE for Li-Ion Batteries is Plummeting

Battery Power’s Latest Plunge in Costs Threatens Coal & Gas  “The long-term cost of supplying grid electricity for today’s lithium-ion batteries is falling faster than expected”, according to a recent article on Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The outcome is that multi-hour energy storage can compete with natural gas and coal. So projects that weren’t viable 12…

New Wind Turbine Generates Electricity Without Rotating Blades

Bladeless Efficient Wind Turbine This new wind turbine wobbles elegantly in the wind, generating electricity without rotating blades. “It looks like asparagus,” says David Suriol, one of the founders. A Spanish company called Vortex Bladeless has produced a wind turbine that takes advantage of the vortices produced when wind moves around an obstacle. How Does…

20 Years – Solar Panels Still Work at 95% Efficiency

Within the last few years the boom in Solar PV has been phenomenal and recent research figures have shown that the price of solar energy is to beat the wholesale cost of fossil fuels within the next few decades if not years. With most arrays having 20 year long guarantees, its unsurprising that the increased…

Impure Silicon Used to Produce Solar Cells

For over 40 years the conventional way of creating efficient solar cells has been through the use of pure silicon. What’s more the process of acquiring pure silicon is both lengthy and costly but up until recently there has been no effective alternative.       New Technology Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science…
