More Research Needed for New Storage Materials

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 17, 2008

If solar energy is to be the primary or only source of heat for houses in the future, there will arise a need for storing it more efficiently. Materials have to be found that are able to hold more energy than water, but with less volume and higher loss. Task 32 of the International Energy Agency's (IEA) Solar & Cooling programme was working on this issue. The scientists presented their results at the Eurosun 2008 in Lisbon, at the beginning of October.

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on August 26, 2008

The Sustainable Energy Finance Directory (SEF) is a free-of-charge online database of lenders and investors who actively provide finance to the renewable energy and energy efficiency sector worldwide. "We support project developers, firms from the renewable energy sector, and communities that are looking for capital and suitable financing solutions," explains Kai Sametinger, who works at Germany’s Forseo GmbH. The Basel Agency for Sustainable Energy (BASE) of Switzerland founded the service in 2002 in cooperation with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
