Tag: clean energy

Clean or sustainable energy is the form of energy obtained from non-exhaustible resources, such that the provision of this form of energy serves the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Fuel Cells and Energy Sustainability

Fuel Cells and Energy Sustainability

Given that energy sustainability and energy economics are top-of-mind among business leaders, politicians, and the public these days, hydrogen fuel cells may be viewed as a savior technology. If that statement seems hyperbolic, there is plenty of statistical evidence to support the growth of fuel cell use for both stationary

Community Microgrids

Community Microgrids

Now, with the increasing availability and cost effectiveness of distributed energy resources (DERs), more and more customers—industrial, commercial, governmental, and residential alike—are taking power generation, and even storage, into their own hands.

Solar and Energy Storage Financing for Schools

Solar and Energy Storage Financing for Schools

Jason Coughlin, a solar analyst at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, was coauthor of a 2011 report, “Solar Schools Assessment and Implementation Project: Financing Options for Solar Installations on K–12 Schools.”

“Schools have continued to install solar using power purchase agreements (PPAs) and the trend is to continue seeing third-party installations,” says Coughlin.

When Red Turns Green

When Red Turns Green

As clean energy development gains momentum across the United States, some surprising front-runners are emerging in the race for renewable energy leadership—traditionally red states like Iowa and Wyoming.

A recent study by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) highlights state-by-state successes in advancing clean energy. The rankings used a dozen metrics

Financing the Future

Financing the Future

Water remains a scarce resource throughout the country. But it’s important, even for utilities that aren’t serving drought-stricken areas, to make sure that they are getting paid the right amount for the water they are delivering. It’s important, too, that they quickly identify and repair costly leaks throughout their systems.

SEPA Report Says Managed EV Charging Is Emerging Big Play for Utilities

SEPA Report Says Managed EV Charging Is Emerging Big Play for Utilities

In the not-so-distant future, charging of electric vehicles (EVs) could be remotely controlled—by utilities or third-parties—to manage load on distribution systems handling increasing amounts of renewable energy, while also providing benefits to customers, utilities and the grid.

The pieces of such a scenario are now coming together across the small but

The microgrid will provide cost savings, increased reliability, and sustainable energy production

Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today unveiled an advanced microgrid at its Boston One Campus (BOC), the company’s North American headquarters in Andover, Massachusetts. The microgrid was built by Schneider Electric and REC Solar,

Toyota Uses AI to Discover New Materials for Energy Storage

Toyota Uses AI to Discover New Materials for Energy Storage

It takes decades to develop new materials. Traditionally, scientists have had to sift through colossal amounts of data and perform extensive trial-and-error testing. Today, however, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can accelerate the process of identifying promising new materials and technologies with high-speed simulations and computer modeling.
