Apple goes green Environmental groups have welcomed the announcement from globally-renowned gadget firm Apple that its data centres now [...]
A recent research has proved that it is possible to make eco-friendly batteries from plant dyes! Well believe it or not but researchers are in the opinion that the red dye obtained from several plant can be used to make lithium ion batteries. A plant known as madder plant which is being used from centuries [...]
This is the first part of a two part piece by Raj Prabhu of Mercom Capital addressing the recent blackouts in India. This first part examines technical, regulatory and political dimensions of the problem, and the second part will deal with proposed solutions. The massive grid failure in India last week affected over 600 million [...]
Planning a solar PV power plant to make them efficient is a complex task, but German researchers have developed a software that makes conceptual design simpler. Researchers at the Fraunhoger Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM in Kaiserslautern, in conjunction with Siemens Energy Photovoltaics, have a developed a new software that improves the process both in [...]
Canadian Solar (NASDAQ: CSIQ), the Ontario, Canada-based solar panel supplier, is expanding its European foothold. The company struck a deal with Lightsource Renewable Energy in England to build four solar power plants. Located in the counties of Cornwall, Lincolnshire, and Somerset, the four plants will be built using Canadian Solar’s panels, which several months ago [...]
Bioplastics, as the name suggest, are a new breed of plastics that come tagged with the green status. These are extracted from renewable sources, unlike one’s that are derived from petroleum. Natural materials like corn starch and vegetable oils have been long used to produce plastic. For example cellulose in wood pulp is still used [...]
A combination of biology and electronics has led to progress in the efforts to make low-cost solar cells from plants. A recently published paper in Scientific Reports described an improved method for making biophotovoltaics that produce electricity without complicated laboratory equipment that was previously needed. The researchers announced that custom-designed chemicals can mix with green [...]

Solarpark Seftenberg Solarpark SenftenbergSolarpark Senftenberg This photovoltaic power plant is the world’s largest and is located at a place close to the city of Senftenberg, Eastern Germany which was earlier used as an open-pit mining area. This 78 MW plant consisting of 62 central [...]
If Noah had IBM’s Deep Thunder and Websphere iLOG software, he wouldhave been piloting a “smart” ark and wouldn’t have needed that dove tofind land. “Our effort here started with weather,” said Lloyd A. Treinish, anIBM Senior Technical Staff Member, talking about Deep Thunder’s origins. But as former IBM CEO Lou Gerstner observed, “You don’t get [...]
Allie Gardner The North American solar market is set for huge expansion over thenext several years. Investors, suppliers, contractors and other energyindustry professionals would do well to learn as much as possible aboutthe new energy economy. That’s why Solarpraxis, a publicly traded service and renewables consulting company based in Berlin, is hosting the Second Annual PV Power [...]
Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is one of our favorite renewable energy technologies, but it might be in serious trouble. And this time the culprit is not cheap natural gas, the Koch Brothers, nor the desert tortoise advocates. This time, the adversary is the other half of the solar family. Just to clarify, CSP includes all [...]
Siemens Energy has received an order for the turnkey construction ofthree photovoltaic plants in Italy from Viridis Energia, a joint venture between Echidna SPA and La.G.I. SRL. With a combined rating of 3 MW, the three solar power plants will be built in the Marche region,between the provinces of Macerata and Ancona. As the generalcontractor, [...]
