Solar energy plays an important role in transitioning the U.S. to a low-carbon, sustainable future. Solar technologies can provide innovative, cost-effective solutions to reduce emissions in a number of sectors of the economy.Keep Reading
The falling cost of solar has made renewable energy accessible to more people than ever before and has resulted in an exponential increase in solar adoption. As such, end-of-life management is important for all PV technologies to ensure clean energy solutions are a sustainable component of the energy economy for future generations.Keep Reading
There are a number of environmental factors related to the construction and maintenance of utility-scale solar power plants, including water use, habitat conservation, and land use.
Deploying more solar energy will sharply reduce the carbon, sulfur and mercury pollution that come from burning fossil fuels, saving approximately 60,000 American lives each year.
#EnergyTwitter exploded yesterday when a story broke on what many agreed was a half-baked study out of the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago. We hate to even restate the bogus premise. It was that renewable portfolio standards may reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but are costly compared to other approaches to addressing climate change.
A diverse group of energy industry associations including energy efficiency and storage, natural gas, oil, solar and wind issued the following statement condemning the administration’s draft plan to bail out coal and nuclear plants across the country.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) formally launched at Solar Power International a first-of-its-kind national solar photovoltaic (PV) recycling program to cement the sustainability of the U.S. solar industry.
