Holu Energy Harnessing The Power Of Microgrids

Microgrids are smaller power grids within a community, such as a neighborhood or a university, that exist to serve the specific needs of that smaller area. Because they have a narrower focus, micro-grids are often more reliable, more efficient, and more affordable for consumers.

Efficiency Breakthrough In Conversion Of Solar Heat Into Usable Light

Since 1961, the Shockley-Queisser Limit has represented an absolute theoretical limit in identifying the efficiency of traditional solar cells in the conversion of energy. A single-layer cell made of silicon, used in the vast majority of today’s solar panels, has an upper limit of about 32 percent. Studies under way to identify whether multiple layers of cells lead to increased overall efficiency by a method known as solar thermophotovoltaics (STPV). In principle, this method of pairing conventional solar cells with added layers of high-tech materials would lead to doubling the theoretical limit of efficiency and double the power from panels.

Major Development From Nissan Can Boost EV Battery Life, Extend Driving Range

Nissan has reached a major breakthrough with its new lithium ion battery generation, which will significantly extend the driving range of zero-emission electric vehicles. As car batteries are continually charged and depleted, overall battery capacities begin to diminish, eventually leading to battery replacement. It remains one of the many issues affecting electric vehicles, however, Nissan believes they may have found the solution by using silicon.

Energy Efficiency And Production: California Leads The Way

Even with the 2nd largest energy consumption and expenditure in the USA , California has some of the lowest per capita consumption patterns in the country. This; when combined with its robust renewable energy production (nearly 4000MW solar projects installed), and a more diversified energy portfolio, sees it trailblazing towards its landmark energy targets. In addition, shielding its economy from the volatility of oil prices, California provides a model that can be used nationally, as well as globally.

Overcoming Challenges, Solar Market Growth Is Becoming Irresistible

Solar power is becoming increasingly competitive and is leading to reductions in the costs of photovoltaics. Emerging and developing countries are seeing a new focus on wind and solar power, as generating it is often considerably cheaper than buying electricity from the grid, with long-term solutions providing independence from fluctuations in fossil fuel prices. The improved speed of installation also allows for renewable energy systems to be positioned in areas with greatest electricity demand.

‘Black Diamond’ Breakthrough Can Change The Future Of Solar Technology

A new solar power technology has been developed, generating energy by harnessing diamonds. A European research team within the European Commission’s FP7 framework, are leading the ProME3ThE2US2 project, developing the ‘black diamond’ as a breakthrough concept which is expected to change the future of solar technology. It has the potential to exceed 50 per cent efficiency in solar concentration systems. As an exciting new low-cost material, it also has potential beyond solar technology.

Reliable, Affordable and Clean Energy: SDG&E Announces Major Contracts

San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has signed a 20MW energy storage facility agreement, capable of storing enough electricity to power 28,000 homes for up to 4 hours. The project can store supplies of solar, wind and other resources when they are abundant and inexpensive, releasing this during peak hours when customer demand is high. The company also signed an 18.5MW energy efficiency agreement. Both contracts aim to provide customers with reliable, affordable and clean energy.
