Largest Solar Portfolio Under Construction in Maine

Largest Solar Portfolio Under Construction in Maine

Once built, the projects are expected to generate over 100 megawatts of power, enough to supply approximately 19,000 Maine homes with solar energy. Representing over $130 million of capital investment, this project is currently the largest solar portfolio under construction in Maine, and is among the largest in the Northeast region.

China's National Sword Policy Could Spur on Global Recycling

China's National Sword Policy Could Spur on Global Recycling

In 2018, China enacted its "National Sword" policy, effectively banning the import of most waste plastics and materials heading for the nation's recycling processors in an attempt to stop the wave of soiled and contaminated materials that were overwhelming the country's processing facilities and threatening it with a major environmental problem.

Inkjet Printed Thin Skinned Solar Panels

Inkjet Printed Thin Skinned Solar Panels

Solar cells can now be made so thin, light and flexible that they can rest on a soap bubble. The new cells, which efficiently capture energy from light, could offer an alternative way to power novel electronic devices, such as medical skin patches, where conventional energy sources are unsuitable.

Efficient Low-Cost System for Producing Power at Night

Efficient Low-Cost System for Producing Power at Night

Researchers have designed an off-grid, low-cost modular energy source that can efficiently produce power at night. The system uses commercially available technology and could eventually help meet the need for nighttime lighting in urban areas or provide lighting in developing countries.

Supercapacitors Usurp Batteries

Supercapacitors Usurp Batteries

What do you now purchase by the kilowatt hour? The new supercapacitors replacing batteries. The new IDTechEx report, "Supercapacitor Markets, Technology Roadmap, Opportunities 2021-2041", shows how supercapacitors have started to replace 10% of lithium-ion batteries and help kill lead-acid.
