eSolar® is extremely proud to be part of Sundrop Farms’ first commercial greenhouse facility in Port Augusta, South Australia which officially opened on October 6th. There have been several excellent articles (see list below) published which give a great overview of Sundrop Farms and this particular site–this article is different. [...]
The U.S. Trade and Development Agency awarded a grant to SolarReserve South Africa (Proprietary) Limited to advance their "Urban Solar Farms" initiative in South Africa; a pioneering study into large metropolitan municipalities that will provide a framework for large commercial and industrial electricity consumers with significant power requirements to cost-effectively [...]
Solar energy has been growing aggressively throughout the world. The majority of this growth is being seen in the photovoltaic solar panel sector, which accounts for the majority of the solar market currently. There is another form of solar power that is gaining momentum, however. Concentrated solar power systems is [...]
Today REN21 published the most comprehensiveannual overview of the state of renewable energy. The Renewables 2016 Global Status Report reveals that renewables are now firmly established as competitive, mainstream sources of energy in many countries around the world. 2015 was a record year for renewable energy installations. Renewable power generating [...]
The heating sector is playing a crucial role in the sustainable transformation of the energy system. The production of heat for industry, households, business and service providers accounts for nearly half of the total energy consumption in the European Union. Industry needs more than a third of that amount, mostly [...]
Crescent Dunes Concentrated Solar Power will begin commercial operation before the end of March, and SolarReserve’s south-central Nevada solar project won’t stumble out of the gate the way power-tower forerunner Ivanpah
The research: outlines the maximum technical potential for solar photovoltaic (PV), concentrated solar power (CSP), wind power and bioenergy output in all continental African countries.
Concentrated Solar Power electricity additions were equivalent to the record level achieved in 2012.
The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) hosted a major clean energy discussion focused on the sector in South Africa at the US Consulate in Johannesburg on Friday, June 6, 2014.
An ambitious 2030 climate and energy framework based on a nationally binding EU renewable energy target is not only justified from a macro-economic viewpoint, but it is also crucial for businesses and investors.
The World Bank has finalised the $250m funding to South Africa’s Eskom Renewables Energy Support Project to get both the Upington concentrating solar power (CSP) and Sere wind power plants off the ground.
Of the approximate 300 GW of new electricity generating capacity added globally over the twoyear period from 2008 to 2009, 140 GW came from renewable energy additions.
NREL is the DOE's only laboratory dedicated to renewable energy efficiency research and development across 12 research areas including electric vehicles, concentrating solar power, buildings research.
