Scientists explore effects of large-scale wind and solar farms in the Sahara Desert. They found that such installations can significantly increase rainfall and boost vegetation in the region, paving the way for a 'green' Sahara, climate benefits, and clean energy.
California marked a milestone in their goal for zero-net energy. The California Energy Commission voted in favor of requiring the installation of solar panels in all new residences by 2020.
NASA's new rollout solar array called ROSA was deployed last weekend. This is the first time for this new technology to be tested in space.
Solar paint could be the future of clean energy. Researchers developed a new compound that can turn solar energy and water vapor into fuel.
Newly developed solar panel cell work for over 10,000 hours without experiencing any significant performance loss.
China just linked the world's largest floating solar power plant to the grid. It is located in a former mining area where water accumulated and later mineralized due to collapse in the soil.
Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk announced last Wednesday that the company will begin accepting orders for their solar roof. The solar roof was introduced last year and it is supposed to be cheaper than normal roofing systems.
New water harvester device is capable of pulling liters of water out of the air using solar energy.
In the future, every household will be able to produce nearly three liters of water daily with this tool.
NASA and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) partnered to study the Sun's atmosphere and its solar winds with the help of a Draper Technology.
SolaRoad's solar bike path project is expected to continue its operations until 2018 after success in its few years of trials.
Graphene is at it again. Scientists appear to be able to create solar panels that can generate energy when it rains, completely being one step closer to changing the entire dynamic of solar energy.
Scientists develop a process of finding materials that could be the key to finally unlocking solar fuel.
Tesla's solar roof will roll out before the year ends. Aside from harvesting power from the sun, it will be aesthetically compatible with many different home styles.
