It is frustrating not knowing whether adding solar panels to your roof may be the most logical plan of action, since it is often difficult to judge if your home receives optimum sunlight to justify the cost of solar power.
The value of pollinators such as bees and butterflies in human nutrition is crucial and without them our nation is at a risk of food crisis. Can anything be done to protect and restore the bee population? Certainly, if we sign the pledge to protect pollinators.
Singer Akon has come up with Akon Lighting Africa initiative and vowed to provide 600 million African residents with solar power.
Japanese researchers have invented solar cell fabric. The new fabric is composed of wafer-thin solar cells, which can be woven together with sweater or trousers capable of powering up mobile phones and other electronic devices.
A new solar technology has been discovered by scientists at Rice University, using nanoparticles. The nanoparticles can directly convert solar energy to steam, entirely skipping the process of boiling water. The efficiency rate for this procedure is 24%.
To setup the largest proposed solar farm in the United Kingdom, the Charnwood Borough Council has given a green signal to the Lark Energy.
After the success of a solar project in Tokelau, these remote Pacific islands have become the first territory in the world to generate their electricity completely from solar energy.
According to a new research, it has been proved that an out-of-the-lab solar-power system can convert more than a third of the sun’s direct sunlight into electricity.
The technology used in a microwave seems to also have found application in the solar energy industry. This has paved the way to create a thin-film photovoltaic products. These can be made with less energy, expense and lesser impact on negative environmental consequences.
