Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Solar roadways...what works and what might not work




Now this is what I like, if you're going to criticise a new idea for a solar PV scheme, at least suggest an alternative, and that, actually, is exactly what Tavarish on the Jalopnik website has done. You will see on this article various criticisms of the solar cycle path constructed in Amsterdam. The piece includes a picture of what seems to be the glass cover broken up, revealing the panels beneath.

However, rather than using this as an excuse to bash PV in general, Tavarish has pointed out a solar roadway scheme that DOES work, that is to say the bike path stretching along the Daejeon to Sejong motorway in South Korea.

The video is featured above. See what you think.
