  • This is what the US clean energy manufacturing boom looks like IRL

    Check out this cool new interactive map that shows where and how clean energy manufacturing is mushrooming across the US. Where the new US clean energy manufacturing is The interactive map was created by the US Department of Energy (DOE) – check it out here – and you can filter by technologies (batteries, EVs, offshore…

  • Floating solar on the equator could provide ‘limitless’ energy

    Vast arrays of floating solar panels near the equator could provide unlimited clean energy to countries in Southeast Asia and West Africa, according to new research. Floating solar in the equator’s waters Engineering professors at Australian National University have published a new paper in which they explain how some regions on the equator would be…

  • Enphase Energy is shipping its first US-made microinverters

    Global energy tech company Enphase Energy just announced the first shipments of its microinverters made in Columbia, South Carolina. In April, Enphase, which supplies microinverter-based solar and battery systems, announced that it would begin manufacturing its products in the US. A microinverter is a device used with solar arrays to convert the energy that’s generated (Direct…

  • A landmark US clean energy transmission line just broke ground

    The TransWest Express, a landmark transmission project that will carry clean energy from North America’s largest wind farm in Wyoming to the US Southwest, has broken ground. The TransWest Express Transmission Project (TWE) will carry electricity generated by Chokecherry and Sierra Madre, the largest onshore wind project in North America. It’s a $5 billion, 3,000-megawatt,…

  • Coal-dependent Eastern Germany is expected to become Europe’s largest clean energy hub

    Coal-fired Boxberg power station in Eastern Germany will host the first phase of building the largest clean energy hub in Europe. US-based long-duration energy storage maker ESS is partnering with LEAG – the largest power plant operator in eastern Germany, and a major energy provider and operator of coal-fired generation – to build the massive…

  • Clean energy investment is now nearly 2x that of fossil fuels – here’s why

    For every $1 spent on fossil fuels globally, there’s now a $1.70 investment in clean energy – yet five years ago, the ratio was 1:1, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). Global investment in clean technologies is on course to rise to $1.7 trillion in 2023, while slightly more than $1 trillion will be…

  • The US’s largest clean energy transmission project just hit a major milestone

    Photo by Brett Sayles on Pexels.com The US Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) today announced a Record of Decision for SunZia, the massive clean energy transmission project in the US Southwest. BLM completed the review period for SunZia in less than two years – one of the final steps the transmission project needed…

  • Here’s how North America’s first utility-scale solar recycling plant is ramping up for the clean energy boom

    We Recycle Solar is deploying new machinery and technology to quadruple its processing capacity to 522 million pounds per year by 2028. We Recycle Solar, which is permitted by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to handle hazardous secondary materials that come from solar panels, removes, decommissions, recycles, and processes the panels for reuse.
