Solar Roofs in Mexico

There is only one country in the world whose borders fall entirely within the “solar belt”, that receives annual daily solar irradiation of between 4.4 and 6.3 kWh/m2 and that also boasts the world’s largest lithium deposit. That country is Mexico, whose geographical location alone puts it in a position to successfully make the first...

When Humankind Reaches its Photovoltaic Perihelion

On January 5, 2020, the Earth reached perihelion, a term coined by the mathematician Johannes Kepler to describe the point at which our planet comes closest to the Sun on its annual orbit. This is the point at which the Earth’s orbital speed is fastest and it receives more sunlight than any other time of...
