How innovators are uniting energy, economics, and adoption.

Solar innovation is transforming economies at scale. This is self-evident as oil, coal, and gas are finite resources. Without energy, commerce ceases to exist. Without the large-scale adoption of solar and other renewable energy sources, once-powerful economies will reach a point of stagnation.

The Key to Solar Integration is Modernization


Solar Software is accelerating solar installation and expanding adoption. Derek Mitchell, founder and creator of SolarDesignTool, set out to revolutionize solar integration. Derek and his partner, Michael Palmguist, received a SunShot Initiative grant for their company, Solar Nexus, with the aim of tackling the soft costs associated with solar installation. They used the grant to develop the industry’s first integrated software system aimed at reducing administrative time to sell and manage projects.

Solar for Commercial Customers: Poised for Growth?

While utility-scale solar and residential rooftop solar have experienced explosive growth in the past five years, the market for solar on commercial buildings has been much slower to take off.  The US Department of Energy is working with innovative entrepreneurs to spur growth in this sector.  As more solar installers begin targeting the commercial sector, a more pragmatic problem-solving approach is needed to gain the trust of commercial customers.

An Interview with Dr. Chung-Han Wu

To lead innovation in clean energy, competition amongst renewables companies is not the solution. Lasting success in solar overhauls the energy infrastructure, decelerates the rate of fossil fuel depletion, and creates technology that sets the standard for large-scale utility initiatives. The future of energy infrastructure is through collaboration.

Why Partnership May Be the Most Valuable ROI Yet

As solar energy booms— over one million solar installations are already connected to the grid, and two million are expected by 2018— the energy industry faces the unique challenge of integrating and optimizing solar energy into the electricity grid (energy.gov). With such a challenge comes the need for collaboration between solar and the nation’s over 3,000 electric utility companies.

Clean Energy Isn’t in a Battle with Fossil Fuels for the Future of Energy

Fossil Fuels and Solar Strategies are Smarter With Collaboration 

When people think of clean technology, there’s often an assumption of tension between renewable energy and oil/gas, meaning that the two are competing with each other for market share. In some ways, this perception of competition is real: economic forces are driving down the costs of renewable energy, which directly cut into fossil fuel profits.
