There are challenges to living on a remote island – from food scarcity to destructive weather – and the lack of affordable, reliable power is among the greatest. The island of Ta’u in American Samoa, located more than 4,000 miles from the West Coast of the United States, is no stranger to power rationing and outages.

A note from Andrea Luecke, The Solar Foundation: 

Dear Solar Industry Professional,

The Solar Foundation is working with the U.S. Department of Energy and BW Research Partnership on the United States Energy and Employment Report and our annual Solar Jobs Census report.

This year, the U.S.  Department of Energy is surveying the energy, energy efficiency, and motor vehicle business community to provide policy makers, business leaders and energy stakeholders with key information about these critical sectors of our economy. 

As in years past with our Solar Jobs Census, this confidential, voluntary survey will take between fifteen to thirty minutes of your time and will provide us the valuable feedback we need to ensure the needs of companies like yours are well understood by the Energy Department, other federal agencies, and energy stakeholders.

Last year’s results: Solar Jobs Continue to Outpace US Economy

CHUCKWALLA VALLEY, Calif. – Just after noon on a 110-degree summer day, the 5.6-square-mile Desert Sunlight Solar Farm – the biggest of its kind erected on U.S. federal land – is proving why this desolate spot is such a good one for harnessing the sun’s rays.

A Lancaster engineering undergraduate has invented a new storage solution that could provide the missing-link needed for a renewable energy revolution. The energy storage market in the US alone is estimated to be worth $200-600billion in 10 years. While most research and development efforts have been focused on improving battery technologies, a Lancaster student believes a mechanical solution could provide the answer.
