The Harbor Smart Battery provides clean energy storage with revolutionary simplicity and automated performance.
David J. Unger for Midwest Energy News: Batteries - whether they're powering a smartphone or storing energy on the grid - take a beating.
Johnny Lieu for Mashable: Researchers at the University of Newcastle in Australia are testing solar cells that use electronic inks printed on plastic film to conduct electricity.
Clear coating developed for the military has incredible potential for solar, wind and other alternative sources of energy.
Traditional hydrophobic coatings are clear and abrasion resistant but do not shed fluid easily. Superhydrophobic coatings are generally great at shedding water but are not clear, and are easily removed. Whether it's abrasion resistance, oil repellency or visual clarity, conventional coatings have their limitations.
Sarah Fecht for Popular Science: The experiment is set to fly to the space station this week
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: Scientists have developed a simpler new process for converting coffee grounds to biofuel.
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Elon Musk says orders will begin today. Pricing details have yet to be revealed.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
