According to Delft University, approximately 60 percent of Dutch citizens live in row houses and 25 percent of those homes are from the post war period. Although beloved by the city's population, these homes have incredibly outdated climate and spatial conditions.
When the sun sets on a remote desert outpost and solar panels shut down, what energy source will provide power through the night? A battery, perhaps, or an old diesel generator? Perhaps something strange and new. read more
Chaori, a small solar panel maker, does not have the $15 million needed to make an annual interest payment that is due on Friday.
When the sun sets on a remote desert outpost and solar panels shut down, what energy source will provide power through the night? A battery, perhaps, or an old diesel generator? Perhaps something strange and new. Scientists now envision a device that would harvest energy from Earth's infrared emissions into outer space. Show More Summary
University of Cincinnati researchers are reporting early results on a way to make solar-powered panels in lights, calculators and roofs lighter, less expensive, more flexible (therefore less breakable) and more efficient. Fei Yu, a University...Show More Summary
Instead of building new, more energy efficient buildings or tacking on some ugly solar panels, these retrofits let historic buildings get clean power in a more pleasing way. When old buildings become too inefficient to maintain, they're often torn down and replaced with something new. Show More Summary
Because solar panels are designed to accumulate as much light from the sun as possible, they're typically very dark in color. It makes them more efficient, but also kind of an eyesore, minimizing their adoption. So researchers at the University of Michigan have developed what they believe to be the world's first semi-transparent, colored solar panels. Read more...
