Technologies in the energy sector shape and reshape the energy landscape. Innovations in the renewable energy area transform the way renewable energy technologies are perceived and used. A recent McKinsey report by Matt Rogers has listed the five technologies in the energy field which may affect the growth and direction of the energy sector by […]

The definition of zero-energy-home or zero energy building is often misunderstood as a building having zero energy consumption. A zero energy building simply refers to a building producing the same (or more) amount of energy than what it consumes within a single year.

Tidal Energy is one of the Renewable Energy Sources, RES,  and together with the Wave Energy are the two forms of the Ocean Energy Renewable Source. In short, Tidal Energy is the energy captured from the tides in the oceans and seas which are caused by the gravitational forces of the moon, primarily, and of […]

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels are undoubtedly what comes to peoples’ minds when they talk about solar energy. Considering that in an hour, the sun radiates solar energy enough to cover for human energy consumption for a year then going green with solar Photovoltaic  (PV) panels

Energy Storage in a nutshell

Energy Storage in a nutshell

by Andy Goldman on September 16, 2012

In a recent energy summit, Energy Storage was considered as one of the top 5 technologies that are necessary to delay or postpone climate change. Energy Storage is also an essential ingredient of the Renewable Energy Sources expansion since it is needed to solve the element of unpredictability for some of the renewable green energy […]

Do you ever find yourself worried about the future of our planet? With our resources rapidly depleting more and more every day, much about Earth’s long-term future is uncertain. Energy sources such as coal and oil are finite and therefore come with an expiration date, so when they’re gone they’re gone. Thankfully, several scientists, engineers […]
