As rumors fly about the impending Keystone XL permit denial, U.S. solar generation soars to new heights thanks partly to the support of corporate citizens.

Concentrated solar PV is a highly efficient but highly complex form of cleantech and it has had its share of doubters, mainly due to its high cost and relatively large footprint. Well, along comes the Obama Administration to erase your doubts. Yesterday, the Department of Energy announced a whopping $24 million in funding for technologies

Un errore metodologico per 20 anni ci ha convinto che il fotovoltaico organico non sarebbe diventato una tecnologia di massa. Da oggi, invece, è possibile.

École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in is a hotbed of solar research, and this week's technology tour of Switzerland hooked CleanTechnica up with two of the experts -- namely, Professor Michael Graetzel, head of the school's Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces, and power-to-gas specialist Professor Kevin Sivula, who heads up the Molecular Engineering of Optoelectronic Nanomaterials Lab.

President Obama's Clean Power Plan includes an important new incentive for solar and wind energy, and with that in mind, we're happy to catch up with the Energy Department's SunShot Catalyst program. SunShot Catalyst is designed to drive down the cost of solar technology and overcome obstacles to solar adoption, by presenting innovators with prize-based

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

Si può evitare di acquistare l'impianto fotovoltaico ma consumare lo stesso energia solare. L’idea di un ingegnere USA che tenta la strada del crowdfunding.

President Barack Obama made clear this week how much he will champion the next phase in the American energy revolution -- the drive toward local energy, a decentralized grid and consumer control.

Crazy, right? Last week the US Navy announced that it will be hooking up with a massive new 210 megawatt solar energy buy, the largest ever of its kind by any federal agency, but that's not what caught our eye. Here's what caught our eye: the new agreement is apparently the first ever to tap

Window panes as power source

Capture and store solar energy everyday (including weekends).

Less fossils, more neurons.
 
Oh, well...
My office has actually window panes southward ...
And these days they are like ovens.
Well done, guys!

The Ford Motor Company has just come out with a new survey of electric vehicle drivers and the big number has been rippling through the Intertubes: more than 90% of EV drivers love their EVs and will stick with electric for their next car. That certainly vindicates the EV driving experience in general, but there

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
