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?
People staying in tune with the news about renewable energy will be well aware how solar energy in the last decade has been a cycle of ups and downs. However, it appears this year marks the best year for solar energy so far. How did this happen?
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.
Odds are looking great to people who are focused on learning more about the benefits and intricacies of renewable energy. It appears jobs in renewables is slated to grow by as much as 170-percent or more in terms of hiring in the next decade.
Aside from cutting down on air pollution, the suspension is also aimed at boosting their renewable energy investment.
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.
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.
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.
Engineers from the University of California, Irvine have successfully implemented a new technique capable of converting and using the excess energy from solar panels or wind farms.
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.
Scientists have found that cryogenic science may be the hope to further improve renewable energy. Cryogenics is a study of reducing the temperatures of biological parts and bodies and reviving them again when needed. An unusual source of energy, it may be a new addition to the short list of renewable sources of energy the world could use in the future.
