Solar plant first to generate energy AT NIGHT - in a glowing 'lightbulb' tower hot enough to melt salt

The Torresol Energy Gemasolar thermasolar plant in Fuentes de Andalucia near Sevilla, southern Spain, is the first commercial-scale plant to apply central tower receiver and molten salt heat storage technology.

Most simple solar cells handle the bluish hues of the electromagnetic spectrum inefficiently. This is because blue photons—incoming particles of light that strike the solar cell—actually have excess energy that a conventional solar cell can’t capture. Image: Argonne National Laboratory

Solar Cell Captures High-Energy Photons Efficiently: "new, inexpensive material that has the potential to capture and convert solar energy—particularly from the bluer part of the spectrum—much more efficiently than ever before.

Whether you're fine with solar panels and how they look or not, you really need to read about these new solar shingles. They're revolutionizing the way we're going to build roofs as a nation. I don't think it will be too far in the future until every house is outifitted with some sort of solar energy system. It's necessary with the damage and decline of fossil fuels. Which do you like better? Panels or shingles?

Space Based Solar Power To Become A Reality - Scientists have assessed the feasibility of space based solar power for a long time now. Solar power satellites, specifically made for this purpose, can collect the unobstructed sun light and send the power towards Earth using low density microwave. The generated power would be cheaper, and would provide an eco-friendly source of energy for Earth. Although, there has not been any progress regarding this matter for a long time, some movements…
