Joshua S Hill for CleanTechnica: Australia’s Carnegie Wave Energy Project has set a new world record after completing 14,000 cumulative operating hours, the highest ever recorded. The news was announced by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) this week, which provided $13.1 million in funding. The $40 million project uses CETO wave energy technology, and was the world’s first array of wave power generators to be connected to an electricity grid. For the past 12 months, the CETO 5 project has used an array of three offshore wave power generators to provide electricity and potable desalinated water to Australia’s largest naval base, HMAS Stirling, on Garden Island in Western Australia. “ARENA is proud to help local companies, like [Carnegie Wave Energy Limited], develop new renewable energy solutions that have the potential to change the way the world generates electricity,” said ARENA CEO Ivor Frischknecht. “We do this by providing Australian innovators with the support they need during the critical RD&D period, when patient funding is essential.” Cont'd...
Partnership aims to lower the levelized cost of electricity through solar tracking projects
Finnish cleantech companies in California this week
As a new product, BixCure is a new optically transparent, UV & weather stable, fast-curing, EVA solar encapsulate. Working with Solar Flight, Bixby International pushed the limits of its BixCure product.
The system is called NEMOS and it is ideally suited to work in combination with offshore wind farms, where it can share electrical infrastructure, which lowers the levelised cost of energy (LCOE), and smooth fluctuations in power-generation, therefore supporting greater commercial viability of renewable energy capture.
Photovoltaic Agriculture: a Perfect Combination of modern agriculture and photovoltaic power generation
There is no denying that at present solar energy is the safest, most reliable and cleanest natural energy in the world. Photovotaic agriculture, a new agriculture industry, can convert solar energy photovoltaic into electricity and apply to agricultural activities, such as planting, breeding, irrigation and plant diseases. Generally speaking, photovoltaic agriculture plays a significant role in wide applications of modern agriculture and has high ecological and economic benefits.
On May 25th, Zhang Gaoli, a member of Central Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party and Vice Premier of the State Council attends and speaks at the TV conference concerning a new wave of upgrading and transformation of rural power grid.
After a roaring start to the year, the excitement over polysilicon has dissipated this week due to the weakened sentiment and the RMB depreciation. In China, although Chinese polysilicon manufactures still intend to increase the price quote, the attempts are limited in success as buyers are reluctant to accept any further price hike. As the result, polysilicon price in China this week stays clam in RMB term, but convert into a slight drop in dollar term due to the depreciation of RMB. As for the polysilicon outside of China, the price tumbles more obviously than China, with spot price falling closer to $15/kg this week.

By Daniel Cusick, ClimateWire for Scientific American: The first offshore wind farm in the United States is set to begin delivering power to Rhode Island’s electricity grid by year’s end, a milestone that could help reshape energy markets from New England to South Florida, experts say. But for U.S. offshore wind power to achieve its full potential, as much as 4 gigawatts of capacity, it will need a major influx of capital and know-how, much of which will come from Europe, where the technology has a 25-year performance record and now accounts for 11 GW of generation capacity on the continent. Representatives of top U.S. and European wind firms—including executives of Deepwater Wind, the firm building the 30-megawatt Block Island Wind Farm off Rhode Island—told industry peers gathered on the Gulf Coast last week that the industry should act now to establish the technical, logistical and policy frameworks to build more offshore wind farms in the United States.
