Editor’s note: This is a good way for anyone with a website (who doesn’t have one these days?) to green their business. It’s something I’ve incorporated on my own sites, and something we are pursuing here on Important Media.

I have a confession to make. I am one of those folks who consistently write on wonky energy things without ever taking the time to write out simple explanations of the basic concepts or why they matter.
So, this piece will give a brief description of what electricity capacity…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/how-a-capacity-market-works-electricity-capacity-markets/ Biofuels, capacity market, capacity markets, Carbon and De-carbonization, Cleantech, Climate, Coal, electrical system, Electricity, Energy, Environment, natural gas, Nuclear Power, Oil, power plants, Solar Power, Sustainability, Wave & Tidal, Wind
At a recent event on renewable energy choices, a proud homeowner showed a picture of his gleaming new rooftop PV array, and pointed out that he’d chopped down all the trees on his lot to make sure nothing got in the way of his roof.
I chuckled, having just planted some trees to save money…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/renewable-energy/are-solar-panels-worth-the-cost-recent-event-on-renewable-energy-choices/ Efficiency, Electricity, energy efficiency, Green Business, new rooftop PV, reduction program, renewable energy, Renewables, Solar Panels, Solar Power, trees
Two questions for you: how many countries in the world source their electricity 100% from renewable sources? And which major European nation that is well-endowed with renewable energy resources, is the worst at exploiting them?
The answers can be gleaned from the recently…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/eu-100-percent-renewable-energy-is-here-updated-international-energy-statistics-of-electricity-generation-from-the-energy-information-administration-eia/ Electricity, electricity generation, Energy and Economy, Energy Information Administration (EIA), enewable energy resources, eu, International Energy Statistics, renewable energy, renewable sources, Solar Power, US Department of Energy, Wind
First off, solar systems aren’t killers, but in certain—very unusal situations, they can be lethal. Once a PV module is connected to wiring, it’s outputting electricity when light hits it, and when the array’s wiring is compromised, or the grid is compromised, PV modules can…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/solar-energy-power/boschs-safer-pv-technology-could-save-lives-bosch-is-bowing-out-of-silicon-photovoltaic-manufacturing-this-year/ Bosch PV modules, Bosch’s Safer PV Technology, Inverters, Photovoltaic Technology, renewable energy, silicon photovoltaic manufacturing, Solar Cells, solar energy, Solar Panels, Solar Power, Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
We proudly announce that Solar Forward of Santa Monica, California, has earned the coveted designation of 2013 SolarReviews Pre-Screened Solar Pro.

Generally if a homebuilder or homebuilding company knows they want to build a home with solar, they also know they usually have to pay for it upfront, a cost they will pass on to homebuyers that can add 10s of thousands of dollars to the price.

About 17% of our worldwide energy consumption comes from renewables. And that share has not increased in recent years.
However, in coming years, wind energy and solar energy will probably bring that share of renewables up. Though the possibilities vary a lot by country.
