Flower-shaped solar panel follows the sun

Megan Barber for Curbed: Based off the concept of how a sunflower follows the sun, the Smartflower is a portable, adjustable petal system that tracks the sun's path throughout the day. When the sun rises in the morning, the Smartflower automatically unfolds and begins producing energy by setting its petals at a ninety-degree angle. The flower goes "back to sleep" into a folding position at night or whenever high winds make it unsafe to operate.

Low-cost 'solar absorber' promising for future power plants

Emil Venere for Phys.org: Researchers have shown how to modify commercially available silicon wafers into a structure that efficiently absorbs solar energy and withstands the high temperatures needed for "concentrated solar power" plants that might run up to 24 hours a day.

PVinsights: China Demand Recovery Decelerates Solar Slump

Global solar panel prices continue to drop this week, extending the longest losses since 2017, but the rate of decline has slowed significantly from previous weeks. The demand in China has restored momentum in April. However, the demand recovery would still not be strong enough to reverse the downtrend of prices, but should help to limit the scope of decline. Meanwhile, although the demand in China has improved, the demand in rest of the major solar markets still appears to be lackluster. In EU and the US, solar panel prices were slashed sharply since 4Q16 and recently major module makers have ceased aggressive pricing. In Japan and India, fierce competition in these regions in efforts to win PV projects in 2H17 continue to drive solar panel prices lower.

Energy Harvesting Europe Article: A world without batteries

Energy Harvesting Europe Article: Governments, manufacturers and other interested parties agonise about what to do as multiple gigafactories spew out vast numbers of lithium-ion batteries that almost always die before the life of the equipment in which they are placed and they are linked to toxins, fires and other nasties. As the world moves to structural electronics instead of the nostalgic old components-in-a-box designs, the batteries are holding up the party because even solid state ones tend to swell and shrink with each cycle, bursting a smart structure apart.
