National Renewable Energy Laboratory
Research at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) has demonstrated a completely counter-intuitive result for thin-film solar photovoltaic (PV) efficiencies, namely that the most efficient solar cells emit more photons than their competitors.
Portland General Electric Company (NYSE: POR) released a statement updating the progress being made on its emissions plan for the Boardman Power Plant. The company implemented its 2020 plan last year to reduce the carbon emitted by its 630 MW coal-fired plant located in Boardman, Oregon. As part of the plan, PGE has agreed to cease using coal at Boardman entirely by 2020.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, or NREL, one of more than a dozen national laboratories vested in renewable energy research under the auspices of the U.S.
Secretary Steven Chu noted that over 1,800 Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations have been installed under the Recovery Act to date -- a statistic designed to address growing concerns over rising fuel costs and dependency on foreign oil.
In a test designed to prove that electric vehicles (EVs) are not only flexible but durable, even in intense cold, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has taken two to Antarctica, figuring that if they run there, they will run anywhere.
