Financing 2.0: Navigating 3rd-Party Financing for Efficiency and Renewables – July 10

The last few years have seen dramatic growth in the variety of third-party financing options available for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. To help make sense of the options, DOE recently rolled out Better Buildings Financing Navigator 2.0, an improved version of our online tool that helps organizations find financing solutions for efficiency and…

Solar has transformed into solar-plus-storage: What will net metering become

“When distributed solar becomes more of a stress than a service to the grid, it transforms into solar-plus-storage and begins again the struggle to build economies of scale to drive its price down to levels competitive with traditional generation. That transformation happens when distributed solar penetration levels approach the point where the system can no…

Scientists create smart windows that actually generate electricity

“Researchers at Berkeley Lab, a Department of Energy (DOE) national lab, discovered that a form of perovskite, one of the hottest materials in solar research currently due to its high conversion efficiency, works surprisingly well as a stable and photoactive semiconductor material that can be reversibly switched between a transparent state and a non-transparent state,…

Why energy efficiency speeds renewables adoption

“To approach any 100 percent renewable energy scenario, improved energy efficiency is needed in both energy-supply sectors and energy-consumption sectors. More than 60 percent of energy produced in the United States in 2016 across all sectors was wasted. Driving the discussion about renewable energy is the need to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. The 2015…
