The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report was a “Code Red” for human-driven global warming. The world has never been more aware of the dangers of climate change and the need to switch to green energy sources. One of the building blocks of a green energy future, is the often-undiscussed energy storage capacity. This element

Powered by sunshine: why electric vehicles and solar panels are a perfect match

When Energy Saving Trust’s head of service delivery Matt Fraser and his family moved house, it provided the perfect opportunity to explore more sustainable ways of living. The family installed solar panels at their new home and swapped their petrol car for an electric vehicle. We spoke to Matt to find out why solar panels

Government slammed over lack of engagement with installers on ‘over-ambitious’ Green Homes Grant

By |2021-09-12T17:39:11+00:00September 29th, 2021|Energy and Climate Change, News, Renewable Energy, Solar and Battery|

The government didn’t sufficiently understand the challenges facing installers as part of the Green Homes Grant (GHG), having failed to learn from its own previous energy schemes. That is one of the key findings of a report from the National Audit Office (NAO), aiming to identify lessons for future schemes following the early closure of

The weekend read: Energy storage potential

Anyone considering investing in solar panels will of course expect that it will be a while before they have paid for themselves by producing valuable electricity. How long it will take to reach breakeven depends on many factors: The initial price of the system, including full installation; the longevity of the hardware components of

Renewables made record-breaking 43.1% share of UK power generation in 2020

By |2021-07-31T12:33:10+00:00August 11th, 2021|News, Renewable Energy, Solar and Battery|

Renewables made up a 43.1% share of UK power generation in 2020, generating more electricity than fossil fuels in the year. This is the first time renewables have beat fossil fuels since the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) began publishing its Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES). Renewables’ share of the generation

For The U.S. To Become Carbon Neutral, Long-Term Energy Storage Is A Must

By |2021-07-31T12:24:21+00:00August 4th, 2021|Battery Storage, Energy and Climate Change, News, Renewable Energy|

The Biden administration is pushing its Energy Earthshots Initiative that aims to accelerate innovation and bring life-changing products to market. That involves “long-term energy storage,” which could radically alter the way electricity is produced and consumed by permanently tipping the scales toward green energy. If voracious energy users such as data centers are to hit
