Elon Musk reveals that SolarCity is developing a novel solar technology: a roof made entirely of solar cells.
Ukraine is planning to convert Chernobyl into a solar farm that can provide more than 1,000 megawatts of solar power and 400 megawatts of other renewable energy.
Apple has secured U.S. approval to sell renewable electricity in power markets around the country.
The Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) captured a phenomenon called solar flares that occur on the surface of the Sun.
The largest solar roof array in the U.S. now sits atop the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. At full capacity, it can supply 25% of the electricity use of the whole Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino operation.
Electricity use from solar energy sources could jump up sixfold by the year 2030, as costs go down, making solar energy cheaper than coal or gas in multiple scenarios.
Tesla installed their first renewable energy powerwall in New Zealand. With their partner company, Vector, they wanted to distribute the technology to 130 institutions, communities, households and schools in the country.
The Solar Impluse 2 just reached Oklohoma after an 18-hour flight without any fuel. They plane is powered by solar energy and is on a mission to travel around the globe using clean aviation technology.
Solar Impulse 2, an experimental plane running on solar power, finally landed in Silicon Valley, completing a trans-Pacific flight without the need for fuel.
Researchers have developed a genetically enhanced virus that could boost the light-harvesting capabilities of solar cells.
University of Michigan researchers created new and lightweight, tilting solar cells that can track the sun and absorb more energy--as an improvement upon the conventional, very weighty panels that are too heavy for most people's roofs. They were inspired by the ancient Japanese art of paper cutting.
Rice University researchers recently developed solar water-splitting technology that produces a clean, renewable energy source, through processes of splitting water.
Well, that's wishful thinking. But one new study has outlined how the entire United States, all 50 states, can successfully transition to renewable energy by the year 2050.
A potentially game-changing breakthrough in artificial photosynthesis may be able to solve the world's carbon emission problem, according to new research.
