India’s Largest Building Integrated Vertical Solar System & The Road Ahead

July 11th, 2020 | by Anand Upadhyay

In 2019, U-Solar Clean Energy Solutions Pvt. Ltd. installed India’s largest building integrated vertical solar PV system at a data center in Mumbai. The system, with a capacity of about 1 MW, has been installed by integrating solar panels on all four walls of the facility, covering over 5000 square feet of facade area


Tesla Granted New Patents For Curved & Textured Solar Roof Tile Manufacturing

August 9th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla was just granted a new series of patents that shed some light on the techniques it will use on its upcoming curved and flat solar roof tiles. These design techniques will presumably be employed as Tesla moves towards the first commercial version of these tiles, which are expected to move into mass production a bit later than the Tesla solar roof tiles that have just been installed on my roof


Building-Integrated Photovoltaics Emerging, Thanks To NZEB Goals

March 13th, 2019 | by Charles W. Thurston

Incorporating solar generation in commercial building materials may finally become a mainstream practice, with both solar windows and solar panels used to create net-zero buildings. Evolving regulations in leading jurisdictions like California and Germany are driving the building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) with adoption deadlines as early as next year


Solar Roof Tiles From Dutch Company Exasun Look Slick (#CleanTechnica Exclusive)

February 25th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

A Tesla copycat? Certainly not — Exasun was in the solar roof tile business before Tesla. It also has what seems to be a cost-competitive, attractive, high-quality product on offer. I visited the company's headquarters and factory in Amsterdam last year during a cleantech tour Remco van der Horst arranged for me when I was in town for rEVolution


Fastned — EV Fast Charging Leadership (#CleanTechnica Exclusive)

February 23rd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

Fastned is still the only EV charging network I know of that includes CHAdeMO, CCS, and Tesla (via adapter) charging options at all of its stations. This may seem unimportant, since Tesla has its own Supercharger network, but as Fastned co-founder Bart Lubbers pointed out in a recent interview with me, approximately half of the electric cars in the Netherlands are Teslas. As such, even with other options, many of Fastned's customers are Tesla drivers


Swedish Solar (Florida Company) Brings Solar In To Replace Shutters

April 15th, 2017 | by Steve Hanley

Rooftop solar is great, but it's not ideal for every home or business. Sometimes the roof faces the wrong way or has the wrong slant. Sometimes the roof is just too small and the owner wants to add more solar panels to cover more electricity usage. Swedish Solar of Orlando, Florida, has a solution
