Wind energy is proving to be a growing industry in the U.S. with over 100,000 jobs being provided to workers. This is a milestone for the growing industry that is currently at risk of being affected by changing climate regulations under U.S. President Donald Trump's new administration.
Scientists are finally one step closer to harnessing the full power of the Sun. If all goes well, the Earth may not need fossil fuels as early as 2030.
Solar, themal or kinetic? Why choose one source, when a single material can harvest power from all?
China is on its way to become the first "Green Superpower" through building the world's largest solar farm in the western province of Qinghai.
In what appears to be a surprising turn of events, while many US states have incentives to get more of their electricity from renewable energy, some Republican legislators in Wyoming are proposing to cut the state off its most abundance source - wind energy.
Everybody is well aware that the nuclear accident in Chernobyl is the worst nuclear accident in modern history. It directly caused the deaths of 50 people, with an additional 4,000 fatalities that were caused by exposure to radiation.
Solar power has become cheaper than coal in some parts of the world. And statistics show that in less than a decade, it will be the lowest-cost option almost anywhere in the globe.
It appears the search is on to find ways to capture carbon right from thin air. Nations worldwide have just agreed to limit carbon dioxide emissions in hopes of preventing global warming from surpassing 2-degrees Celsius by 2100.
France has just opened what it says is the world's first solar panel road in a Normandy village. The road is a whopping 1km route in the small village of Tourouvre-au-Perche covered with 2,800sqm of electricity-generating panels.
Good news! Block Island Wind Farm, the first offshore wind farm in the U.S., has officially started its operation, replacing 90 percent of the island's diesel-generated electricity to clean, renewable wind energy.
Scientists have devised a way to provide air conditioning by beaming heat from the Earth’s surface into outer space.
A new company from Hungary is reinventing urban and road planning by installing solar panels made from recycled plastics on sidewalks to collect both solar and kinetic energy.
Using its original breakthrough tyre recycling technology, Australian startup company Green Distillation Technologies (GDT) ingeniously recycles end-of-life tyres into an oil that when mixed into minute amount of diesel produces high-quality biofuel that cuts emissions without compromising engine performance. GDT also turns old tyres into carbon and steel, leaving nothing wasted. It even uses some of the recovered oil as the heat source.
Google is not only the Silicon Valley giant who is racing towards renewable energy. Other companies like Apple and Facebook are also geared towards the same goal.
