New solar project to provide less expensive power than coal, but will it last?

New solar project to provide less expensive power than coal, but will it last? Dubai has announced a new upcoming solar project that should deliver less expensive power than a recently approved coal-fired power plant in the area — a third less expensive.It’s part of a recent spat of price-beating going on in the industry, as companies and nations seem bent on maintaining the title of the world’s cheapest source of solar power.

New form of carbon capture actually creates power, rather than consuming it

New form of carbon capture actually creates power, rather than consuming it A new form of carbon capture could solve one of the major problems facing the most efficient versions of the technology: energy.This new electrochemical cell, on the other hand, produces industrially useful oxalates that could be sold to chemicals companies and manufacturing companies.

Following methane leak, Tesla to provide 80MWh of battery capacity to SoCal power co

Following methane leak, Tesla to provide 80MWh of battery capacity to SoCal power co Last October’s rupture in the Aliso Canyon natural gas reservoir released 1.6 million pounds of methane into the atmosphere, leaving a cloud of methane hanging over the Los Angeles basin.

We still don’t have energy-positive fusion yet, but MIT just got close

We still don’t have energy-positive fusion yet, but MIT just got close Now the 23-year-old fusion reactor has shut down for good — but not before the C-Mod team went for it one last time.The team presented their results at the IAEA’s Fusion Energy Conference in Kyoto yesterday (October 17th), and they aren’t necessarily scrapping the equipment.

Tesla's solar grid now powers an entire island in the South Pacific

Tesla's solar grid now powers an entire island in the South Pacific The island of Ta’u is the easternmost volcanic island of the Samoan islands, and it’s historically relied on diesel generators for power, despite the constant need to import fuel.4MW microgrid will provide power to virtually the entire island, backed up by 6MWh of battery storage.
