Solar Power: what’s up, sunshine?

So, it’s been over eight months six since I had my photovoltaic (PV) array and battery installed on the back of grant aid from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). As promised, here’s my follow up report with all the figures. Thanks for the requests on Twitter bright sparks. I’ve emerged from the full blaze of a tropical Irish summer…


Korea can be a green powerhouse

In February, I visited Korea as Denmark’s new Climate Ambassador to contribute to preparations for the second P4G Summit to be held this June in Seoul. During my visit to Korea, I saw ample proof that Korea has what it takes to develop a new industrial sector in renewable energy, similar to what we have done in Denmark for the past 50 years…


Technology moves too fast for government

The sole “Nevada question” at the Feb. 19 Democratic presidential candidates debate was posed by moderator Jon Ralston, editor of The Nevada Independent, and dealt with their plans to combat climate change in Las Vegas and Reno. In response, former Vice President Joe Biden identified the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Plant as a source of new…


This Renewable Energy Stock’s Future Is Now Even Brighter

Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP) has done an amazing job creating value for investors over its 20-year history. It has routinely generated market-beating total returns, powered by its dual focus of growing its cash flow and its dividend. One of the keys to its success has been acquiring cash-flowing renewable energy assets to expand…


Lessons from cloud forecasting solar PV in off-grid applications

The relatively unpredictable nature of cloud formation, disappearance and movement causes short-term variability of irradiance levels, resulting in variable solar PV power generation. There are several ways to manage this variability and cloud forecasting using cloud prediction technology (CPT) is likely to be a part of the solution in both…


Mismanagement of Investment Funds Hampers Africa’s Energy Growth

The Open Africa Power is an education venture initiated by Enel Foundation in 2018 in partnership with The University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business, South Africa, Strathmore University, Kenya, and Italian universities such as Politecnico di Torino, Politecnico di Milano, Bocconi University, Florence School of Regulation and Venice…

This troubled me and I delved deeper into my research where I learned about renewable energies and how it can help combat both climate change and provide stable electricity for 93 million Nigerians, who have no access to electricity including my parents.

How Blockchain Can Transform Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is one of the prime concerns of the present world in which businesses are witnessing newer threats with each passing day. Although, the future of cybersecurity will always be unpredictable, yet it is important to prepare the assessment of possible vulnerabilities and potential security innovation to keep the customer consistent…


Indonesia needs a better clean energy policy

While ASEAN member countries race to seize market share amidst the renewable energy boom in the region, Indonesia – as the biggest energy user – does not seem to realize what it’s missing. Vietnam reached 5.5 gigawatts (GW) installed solar PV capacity in 2019 from only 134 megawatts (MW) in 2018. Thailand held the record both, for wind and solar…

Without proper regard to corporate clean energy sourcing, Indonesia will continue to lose momentum and investment opportunities to its neighbors who have well-rounded policy support in their respective renewable energy sectors.

The sharing economy has become an unstoppable force–and the collaborative, peer-to-peer economy has…


Details of local solar projects announced

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has announced details of the awards for 21 large-scale solar, wind and energy storage projects across upstate New York, and among them is a solar project that will encompass the towns of Brasher, Norfolk, and Massena. North Side Energy Center, LLC, plans to develop, construct and operate the solar energy center on private…

We’re still working on solar. It’s getting closer. NYSERDA (the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) has awarded the solar project between Norfolk, Brasher and the town of Massena. It looks like there will be some public hearings whenever we do get closer to starting out.
