The Berkeley Lab says tightening U.S. homes to the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code standard is achievable, and would save $33 billion annually.
Wind energy opponents often claim nearby turbines will send home values plummeting, but a new U.S. study says it just ain’t so.
The government’s latest “Tracking the Sun” report shows the installed cost of solar PV in the United States continuing to decline at a rapid clip.
U.S. government scientists, in a study backed by Google, say huge energy savings are possible with centralized data services.
After years of creating squint-inducing white cool roofs to reduce solar gain, researchers are coming up with a a wider array of colors, including deep blue, to reflect unwanted rays.
Two new initiatives at Berkeley Lab could have long-range effects on how green building engineers evaluate the performance of tomorrow’s most environmentally friendly materials.
A recent study shows that solar installation costs have dropped substantially in 2011 and early 2012, but most savings have been offset by a reduction in government subsidies that the solar industry had been relying on for the last decade.
The annual U.S. report on installed PV shows prices fell between 11 and 14 percent in 2011, and indications are the trend was continuing into this year.
