The Solar Roadways project is working to pave roads with solar panels that you can drive on. Co-founder Scott Brusaw has made some major steps forward since our first visit back in 2007, so we visited him again for an exclusive update on the project,...
Twin Creeks Technologies has created a new way to make silicon solar wafers that creates far less waste than traditional methods, and cuts the cost of production in half.
For the first time, researchers have harvested electrons directly from individual photosynthesizing cells, a possible first step toward generating electricity directly from plants.
New technology, including better control algorithms and communications, is improving the performance of wind turbines.
Electricity from coal is downright expensive compared to power from a new solar plant. ->
The economic viability of solar power is advancing rapidly. It's actually already more than competitive within certain markets, and the price of solar panels saw a precipitous decline over the last four years. In fact, solar technology has been advan...
