From the wonderful world of biomimicry comes a solar energy breakthrough based on the posture at rest of a small butterfly called the Cabbage White. Who knew that voguing is still a thing? Apparently, this stylin' butterfly forms a uniquely angled

For decades, typically only homeowners with enough rooftop space, the proper roof tilt, and just the right orientation to the sun had the option to power their homes with solar. The average cost of...

The energy company Georgia Power has run the numbers, and it looks like solar energy comes out a winner. The company is planning to build a new $75 million solar array at US Navy Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia, and it expects the project to be up and running next year, at or below

That old argument about solar energy being unreliable is getting weaker by the minute, and here comes IBM to knock the pins right out from under it. The company has come up with a Big Data approach to predicting the weather, and the result is a solar energy forecasting system that is up to 30%

A group of US Army researchers has just won a patent for a new solar cell, capping off a project that has been in the works since the late 1990s. The Army is already all over portable solar power and the new cell would ramp that trend up by making solar equipment more lightweight and

Hi

This petition is really taking off!  Could you please sign & share?

#SolarPower 
Green roofs have an insulating effect, helping reduce the amount of energy needed to heat a building in winter and cool it in summer. Solar Panels cut energy bills and are good for the environment. This will also be a tremendous help in reaching government and international targets for decreasing carbon emissions in the fight against Climate Change. France has just passed this legislation and you can read about it...

Solar is in a desperate race against diesel when it comes to supplying electricity to off-grid communities, and SunSaluter is in it to win. SunSaluter, organized as a nonprofit, is pitching an

What a difference a month makes. Back in June, the California Farm Bureau Federation reported that local officials were still a bit iffy over the prospects for scaling up a relatively small, demonstration-scale solar desalination plant for the water-starved San Joaquin Valley. We have no idea what changed their minds, but just last week the

Fancy new solar cell materials like perovskites and graphene have been distracting us with high-tech sparkles in the lab, but in the meantime, good old silicon is still the gold standard for solar cell efficiency in the marketplace. Exhibit A is today's news from the solar cell manufacturer Wuxi Suntech, which has just announced yet

Since we're celebrating Independence Day this weekend over here in the USA, we're sharing this fireworksy image of perovskite crystals emailed to us by the folks at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Better known for its work on nukes, the lab has been hot on the trail of next-generation, super-efficient solar cells, and it looks like

Thought you might be interested in this op/ed.
We can turbocharge the transition to a post-carbon world. We just have to pull up our socks and do it.

Solar industry deeply unconscious?

Several intervies at the Interolar in Munich brought me to this conclusion. Why has this industry no target?
