World’s Largest Solar Plant Secures Key Milestone in Development

South Australia—home to the world’s largest battery —is one step closer to also hosting the world’s largest solar thermal power plant following developmental approval from the state government. California-based SolarReserve is behind the $650 million, 150-megawatt ” Aurora ” project that will be located 30 kilometers north of Port Augusta. Solar thermal plants are different from traditional photovoltaic panels on rooftops and solar farms. These plants, also known as concentrated solar plants, consists of a large field of moveable mirrors, or heliostats, that concentrate the sun’s rays to a central

Clean Energy in 2018: Here’s What to Expect

By John Rogers While the year 2017 is one I don’t mind seeing in the rear view mirror (and I’ve got colleagues that would agree ), in the field of clean energy we made a whole lot o’ progress. A new year, if I’ve done my math right, means 12 more months to move the ball forward on clean energy. Here are a few things I’ll be keeping my eyes

50 Ways 100% Clean Energy Won In 2017

By Jodie Van Horn We’d never argue that 2017 was a great year, but some really great things did happen! Here are 50 ways (yes, 50!) that clean energy kept winning in 2017 despite Trump’s attempts to roll back the country’s progress. 1. The Republican Mayor Championing 100% Renewable Energy in Louisiana Republican Mayor Greg Lemons made his small town of Abita Springs the first municipality in Louisiana to commit to 100% clean energy. Mayor Lemons said his 100% renewable energy vision for Abita Springs, which has a population of 2,900, aligns with the conservative values of his community—and

‘World’s First Solar Highway’ Opens in China for Testing

Jinan, the capital city of China’s Shandong province, opened on Thursday a kilometer-long stretch of solar expressway for testing, joining France and the Netherlands that have tapped into the nascent technology. China’s new solar road consists of an insulating layer on the bottom, photovoltaic panels in the middle, and transparent concrete on top. The solar panels cover 5,875 square meters and can generate 1 million kilowatt-hours of power in a year, or enough to meet the energy demands of about 800 homes, Qilu Transportation Development Group , the project developer, claimed . If the technology proves effective, the electricity generated by the panels could power everything from street lights to

Rooftop Solar and EVs Save Water and Cut Pollution: Better Use of Data Will Optimize the Benefits

By Beia Spiller Thanks to improvements in technology, it’s easier than ever to be green. Solar panels and electric vehicles (EVs) are two prime examples of technologies that can help people minimize their environmental footprint, without sacrificing comfort or having to radically change their daily behavior. But the question still remains: How much of an environmental benefit do these technologies actually produce? And, are there actions that owners of these technologies can take to minimize their pollution footprint even more? A new paper by my colleagues and me, recently published in Energy Economics, attempts to answer these two questions for households in Austin, Texas. These homes are part of Pecan

Renewable Energy Isn’t Perfect, But It’s Far Better Than Fossil Fuels

In their efforts to discredit renewable energy and support continued fossil fuel burning, many anti-environmentalists have circulated a dual image purporting to compare a lithium mine with an oil sands operation. It illustrates the level of dishonesty to which some will stoop to keep us on our current polluting, climate-disrupting path (although in some cases it could be ignorance). The

Solar Windows Could Meet Nearly All of America’s Electricity Demand

By Joe McCarthy There’s an estimated 5 to 7 billion square meters of glass surfaces in the U.S. For windows on homes, cars and buildings, these glass surfaces perform a few basic functions—letting light and fresh air in when open, and blocking bugs and keeping the cold out when closed. Now they could all serve another, altogether revolutionary, purpose—generating electricity. A new paper in the journal Nature Energy describes how transparent solar panels could be placed over all windows and transparent surfaces in the U
