Polysilicon price extends gains this week as shortage situation in China continues to reverberate. As some Chinese polysilicon makers leverage strategic supply curtailment, polysilicon supply remains tight in China. Meanwhile, the demand in China has strengthened amid the extensive capacity expansion of downstream wafer manufacturers. Hence, as supply shortage situation panics polysilicon buyers, Chinese supplier are able to drive the price quote up successfully. On the other hand, as affected by the price uptrend in China, polysilicon suppliers also follow to increase their price quotes outside China with success.
Sam Grobart for Bloomberg: There are 332,519,000 cubic miles of water on the planet. That's 352,670,000,000,000,000,000 gallons just sloshing around out there. Anyone who's ridden or been tossed by a wave has a sense of the kinetic energy contained in our perpetually moving oceans. If we could harness it, it could provide a clean, renewable source of energy. But efforts to turn our oceans into power generators—often in the form of "aqua-mills," windmill technology adapted to water—have foundered on the complexity of their many moving parts in the corrosive and remote environs of the sea. A new approach, developed by a company called Oscilla Power, applies all that kinetic energy to a solid piece of metal instead of using it to turn the blades of an impeller. That creates an alternating magnetic polarity in the metal that can be converted into electrical current. Oscilla's technology, which is nearly solid-state, may prove far more durable than any other ocean-power project, increasing the chance to draw power from our oceans cleanly, meaningfully, and endlessly.

Smart lighting innovations on display in San Diego, April 26-28, at booth #7017
sonnen, the market leader in intelligent energy storage with over 10,000 installed sonnenBatterie systems, wins the 2016 Grid Edge Award for the capability to innovate distributed energy products that are impacting and disrupting the market.
Smarter Grid Solutions has announced they are working with LOTTE Chemical to test and demonstrate LOTTE's Flow Battery Technology in the UK market. The two year project will demonstrate the controllability of a battery when it is paired with other technologies, such as renewables, to provide evidence of the types of ancillary services the pairing of these technologies could offer.
Swedish solar energy expert Midsummer receives funding from Mistra for development of lightweight solar modules on vehicles
The developed solar panels will be integrated in body panels in a Clean Motion Zbee ultra-light electric vehicle composite roof. The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research, Mistra, is funding Midsummer's development of lightweight solar modules on vehicles.
The Swedish marine energy company has now placed an order for a prototype of the turbine, with delivery in early 2017.
Adam Vaughan for The Guardian: The amount of household solar power capacity installed in the past two months has plummeted by three quarters following the government’s cuts to subsidies, according to new figures. A fall in solar power was expected following a 65% reduction in government incentives paid to householders, but the size of the drop-off will dismay green campaigners who want take up on clean energy sources to accelerate. Data published by the energy regulator this week shows there was 21 megawatts (MW) of small solar installed in February and March this year, after a new, lower incentive rate came into effect. By contrast, energy department figures show that for the same period in 2015, 81MW was installed. Cont'd...
Leading sustainability firm, greeNEWit, recognized for helping homeowners improve energy efficiency and increase comfort in homes
Although marine power's damage to the environment is significantly less than its energy counterparts, the possible affects to existing ecosystems must be considered.
Currently the UK is seen as the leader for the development of marine energy technologies. Around 10MW of wave and tidal stream devices are being tested in UK waters, more than the rest of the world combined.
Hydrogen-powered vehicles emit only water vapour, produce no carbon emissions or air pollution, have a range of several hundred miles and refuel in three minutes.
