A combination of residential solar, storage and smart controls could "dramatically reduce" the evening peak. This is according to a new report produced by the Solar Trade Association (STA), Loughborough University and Advanced Further Energy. The report looks into the grid and consumer benefits of four generations of smart home, scaled up across a

Solar can play an important part in the UK’s COVID-19 recovery, says CCC report

By |2020-07-07T09:38:26+00:00July 9th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Solar, Solar and Battery|

Solar and other renewables have made some strong progress towards decarbonisation, but there is still more to be done. Between 2008 and 2019, power emissions fell by 68%, helping to drive a general 30% reduction in territorial emissions according to the Committee on Climate Change’s (CCC) 2020 Progress Report. This has been helped by

Record start to 2020 for renewable generation

In Q1 of 2020, renewables generated a record 47% of the UK's electricity, according to new figures from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Together, wind, solar, hydro and other renewables smashed last year's total of 35.9% thanks to increased capacities and higher wind speeds through February when a number of

Solar and clear skies: Not a penny more, not a penny less

By |2020-07-07T09:24:23+00:00July 7th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Solar, Solar and Battery|

The nights are drawing in. It's been a long spring, and exceptionally clear skies have provided a golden opportunity for a little research this year. Back in March I wondered if the lack of pollution was delivering extra energy to clients' solar panels. Sadly, careful analysis comparing cloudless days with those of a year
