Can Solar Energy Save The Bees?

By: Greer Russell In response to the population decline of pollinating insects, such as wild bees and monarch butterflies, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory are investigating ways to use “pollinator-friendly solar power.” By studying solar energy facilities with pollinator habitats on site, researchers hope to rehabilitate pollinator populations that […]

Portable Solar Energy System Powers Rural Development

Photovoltaic energy is a clean, renewable and economical source of energy that can help reduce consumption of fossil fuels to mitigate global warming. It provides energy off-grid to remote communities with no electricity or as part of a hybrid energy generation system. Most people without access to electricity live in regions with very good or […]

Edmonton Study Shows Snow Only Mildly Affects Solar Panel Productivity

By: Kateryna Didukh EDMONTON—A five-year study led by Northern Alberta Institute of Technology’s (NAIT) Alternative Energy Technology program found that the impact of snowfall only results in three per cent loss of solar energy. Tim Matthews, technologist in charge of the NAIT study, said previous predictions expected as much as a 20 per cent loss in […]
