Tesla will sell 168.5 megawatt-hours of behind-the-mete energy storage systems to SolarCity this year. That's more than six times what it sold to SolarCity in 2015 -- and 60% more than the entire market reported last year.
Sol Voltaics announced it's successfully used nanowires in a thin photovoltaic film that could boost solar energy generation and pave the way for module efficiencies of 27% or more -- 50% better than today’s solar panels
Researchers at the University of California have discovered a way to use nanowires to allow lithium-ion batteries in smartphones, electric vehicles and other commercial devices to be recharged hundreds of thousands of times.
Two young architects have designed a data center that challenges how the structures are built. Instead of constructing a flat, sprawling complex, they are proposing a data center that reaches skyscraper heights.
A federal study of 128 U.S. cities revealed that if Americans installed solar panels on every roof, it would supply 1,432 terawatt-hours (trillion watts) of annual energy generation -- 39% of the total power used by the U.S.
MIT researchers have shown that building solar cubes or towers that extend the solar cells upward in three-dimensional configurations can increase power output ranging from double to more than 20 times that of fixed flat panels with...
Boeing has delivered what it's calling a first-of-its-kind "reversible" fuel cell system for the U.S. Navy that uses a solid oxide cell to store energy created from solar power to produce clean, zero-emissions electricity.
