Concentrated solar power, or CSP, is a pretty extraordinary technology; it uses an array of mirrors to focus the sun's energy onto a central tower, where the heat is then turned into electricity. There
2014 was a record-breaking year for the solar power industry around the world, and here in the U.S. we were installing new solar systems at a faster rate than ever before. New data from GTM Research shows
A team from the University of New South Wales, Australia, just set a new world record for solar energy efficiency by successfully converting 40.4% of available sunlight into electricity. And what's even
Concentrated solar power (CSP) is set to become much more efficient - a team of researchers at UC San Diego just developed a new nanomaterial that could enable CSP plants to absorb and convert more than
What do you get when you combine public art with renewable energy? That's exactly what the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI)'s annual design competition seeks to explore. Every year LAGI asks designers
Australian engineers might have solved one of the biggest obstacles to scaling up solar energy -- the lack of affordable storage technology that allows solar to be used at peak demand after the sun goes
With their solar vehicle Resolution, a team of engineering students from Cambridge are set for a sun-tracking adventure which will take them all the way across Australia. Their solar car will travel 3,000
We've written about the Sahara Forest Project before, so we're excited to report that the organization behind this ambitious endeavor has signed an agreement to build its first pilot plant in Doha, Qatar.
