To date, nowcasting research has primarily concentrated on rainfall prediction, while solar forecasting remains relatively unexplored. Advances in the field are crucial for improving solar energy reliability and efficiency.
Solar energy technology is constantly developing. What new possibilities does this open up and what role can these defect-tolerant solar cells play in smart infrastructure?
Solar panels only have a lifespan of around 25-30 years, and the vast majority end up in landfill. French start-up ROSI is developing a way to recycle them with the help of EU funding.
A study examining the historic prices of fossil fuels and renewable technologies suggests coal, oil and gas might not actually be as cheap as common.
Solar thermal water heaters have been around for a while, but their expensive and scale means they're only available to wealthy homeowners. A new flat-pack version wants to change that.
When it comes to speeding up the renewable energy transition, satellites can play a crucial role. We've taken a look at a few case studies that show us how.
The Syria Solar project aims to equip hospitals in Syria with solar systems to ensure that the local population can get medical care around the clock - even when conventional energy supplies are scarce and the power goes down.
A group of collaborators at MIT have come up with a remote assessment platform for rooftop solar that allows any community in the world to discover - and exploit - their underlying solar resource potential.
This summer, the world's second solar-powered train will go into operation - taking hundreds of tourists on a scenic trip through Argentina, and eventually on towards Bolivia and Peru, all the way to Machu Picchu.
