Solar heat and electric power

Researcher Joshua Pearce  from Michigan Technological University has been working on solving a long-standing problem in solar technology: On one hand, solar thermal systems can harvest more energy in form of hot water than photovoltaic systems can generate in terms of electricity, but electric power is valued higher in monetary terms. Yet the average household […]

Yesterday and today we are attending the CEM3 meetings in London and in the margins of these important meetings two projects are introduced – the Global Solar and Wind Atlas and the IRENA Learning and Education Partnership. reegle provides data and support for both initiatives and we are confident that both activities are an important […]

Renewables – current situation

Bloomberg New Energy Finance released their global trends for investment in renewables in 2011, here it is digested for you: Global investment in renewables jumped 32% in 2010, to a record $211 billion. It was boosted especially by wind farm development in China as well as small-scale solar PV installation on rooftops in Europe. Noteworthy […]

Despite recent progress, many regions in Tanzania are still grappling with low access to electricity and the lack of basic infrastructure. In partnership with GVEP International and the Developing Energy Enterprises Project (DEEP), Ruth Musenye is overcoming these challenges by expanding and diversifying her solar-charging business.

Generating solar power has never been prettier

Solar trees as you can see above and below, are decorative ways of producing solar energy. The idea was first put into practice in Austria, a few years ago. In Europe, they are usually used for street light. They are able to provide enough light during the night-time even when the sun did not show […]

Solar Water Heating Systems: Global Perspectives

Rekindling the commitment to derive learnings from the global programmes and accelerate penetration of solar water heating systems in India under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), in association with Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and UNDP […]
