Alexander C. Kaufman for Huffington Post: The first-of-its-kind project could be a model for states like Washington and Oregon, and countries like Brazil, that depend heavily on hydroelectricity.
Tereza Pultarova, Live Science Contributor: The windows have solar cells installed in the edges at a specific angle that allows the incoming solar light to be efficiently transformed into electricity.
James Temple for MIT Technology Review: Falling prices, improving technology, and smart public policies are changing the calculations.
Nick Lavars for New Atlas: "I thought the dirt had to affect their efficiencies, but there weren't any studies out there estimating the losses. So we put together a comprehensive model to do just that."
Katherine Lin for NBC News MACH: A team of researchers in Australia have created an experimental paint that attracts water molecules from the air and chops them up to produce hydrogen.
Nichola Groom for Reuters: The U.S. solar industry would see two-thirds of expected demand dry up over the next five years if a trade case aimed at propping up the domestic panel manufacturing industry is successful, a new report said on Monday.
By Chisaki Watanabe, Emi Nobuhiro, and Kevin Buckland for Bloomberg: The tech giant thinks solar roof panels are the future for hybrids and EVs.
Climate Action UN: According to local reports, Indian Railways will install flexible solar panels and batteries to power lights and fans on board 250 of the network's trains.
Science Daily: Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as "exhaust."
Isha Salian for San Francisco Chronicle: Sunny skies sound like a positive for energy production, but this week's heatwave in California isn't a boon for solar power.
Benjamin Storrow for Scientific American: Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Maryland are all eyeing up manufacturing and maintenance businesses that would support wind energy
Bobby Magill for Scientific American: 10 percent of electricity generated in the country in March came from these renewables
Conor Ryan for Energy Storage News: A first prototype of the storage system is expected to be developed later in 2017, with both companies planning to secure a commercial pilot plant during 2018.
Leanna Garfield for Business Insider: Not considering the multi-billion-dollar construction cost of the wall itself, the solar array installation could cost between $1.4 billion and $4.2 billion

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
