In Japan, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has given a green signal to clean energy projects totalling around 1,780 megawatts of capacity. This decision has been taken under a government incentive program, which increases dependence on solar power up to 83% until the end of September. (more…)

All thanks to ‘London Hydro’ and its offer of developing solar projects in the city, the residents of London hope to see the solar panels finally installed. If the council committee accepts the offer, London will be taking one more step to harness solar energy – one of the readily-available energies.
To discuss the offer and the project as a whole, a meeting is scheduled on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012. ‘Strategy of creating solar panels on the rooftops of municipal buildings in London’ will be the agenda of this meeting. (more…)
Meet a new solar cell that can go anywhere with you. It’s amazing to know that your windows, curtains and wallpaper will harvest energy form the sunlight in the future. (more…)
Floating solar panels, an invention of its own kind is ready to add a new page in the history. It is great to acknowledge that such a kind of creation is another step to clean energy. (more…)
A professor of chemistry at the University of Texas at Austin, Xiaoyang Zhu, and his team have successfully discovered a method to increase the efficiency of conventional solar cells. Their research reveals that the number of electrons gathered from one photon of sunlight can be doubled using an organic plastic semiconductor material. (more…)
He also quoted that solar players’ demand for land could change growers’ future who were selling their land to real estate developers though housing sector was not doing well.
Ormat, the world’s largest geothermal developer, shifted its business into the solar market in 2009 and involved its power plant construction expertise to make solar PV (or CSP) plants in Israel. (more…)
It’s a known fact that having shared coequal views on using clean energy, solar panel and EV consumers are the same people from the higher middle class with an increasing disposable amount of money. Not surprisingly, Ford and SunPower, the largest solar panel maker in Silicon Valley have come together to offer consumers a bundle of rooftop solar panel assembly along with their new buy of Focus Electric.

MIT team of researchers are working on a system which can supply 24 hours solar energy by designing a concentrated solar power (CSP) that would store heat in molten salts containers. Though this technology has been implemented before by Spanish company Torresol Energy through its “power tower” system, MIT is focusing on lowering the installation, operation and maintenance costs. With extra costs saved, this system will effectively work to help small towns and communities switch themselves from grid to clean energy. (more…)
