The Cerro Dominador solar-thermal mega-project being developed in the Atacama Desert in Chile just took a big step forward after obtaining a favorable environmental rating from Chilean Environmental Service authorities. The Cerro Dominador project will be the first solar-thermal power plant for direct electricity production in the whole of South America — as well as, […]
The noted multinational engineering and electronics company Bosch will soon be releasing a new energy management system for the optimization of electrical and thermal energy consumption from personal solar power systems, according to a recent announcement from the company. The new system is expected to launch at this year’s Intersolar exhibition and conference. Referred to […]

Kyocera Corporation recently announced that it has installed a “Solar Cycle Station, for EVs” at the headquarters of Shintec Hozumi Co, in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The system — which is based on a development plan drawn up by Shintec Hozumi — has been constructed as a sort of backup energy source during times of disaster. […]

The first 3-D nanoscale observations of the structural changes that occur in the anode of a lithium-ion battery during operation (discharging and recharging) were recently achieved by researchers at the US Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory. This achievement is expected to lead to a much greater understanding of such processes, and, as a result,

Originally published on the ECOreport. SolarCity spokesperson Will Craven said that about 500 of their California customers have agreed to install batteries for power storage, but the state’s three biggest utilities have only connected 12 since 2011. He decided to go to the press after Southern California Edison (SCE) said they were going to charge
Originally published on Gas2. The Brammo Empulse is one badass electric motorcycle, and this cutaway video goes beneath the skin of this electric crotch rocket to show what makes it go. As we covered in our reviews, the Brammo Empulse is no joke on either the streets or the race track. But what makes it all go?
Originally published on Lenz Blog. It is of course correct that eventually all energy will be renewable, and the only question is how fast that happens. Fossil fuel will run out eventually. It is also correct (in my opinion) that we should rather not gamble with the amount of CO2 that can be safely released.

By Vic Shao The past few weeks of sunny weather have been paying off, literally, for California’s solar companies. On March 16th the state set a new record by drawing more than 16% of our energy use from solar energy. But even that isn’t enough for those of us that want to see our communities reach net
