Dead coal mines everywhere are being reincarnated as solar farms

Echo Huang for Quartz: The Berkeley Energy Group is planning to turn a strip mine in the Appalachians into a solar power plant that could produce somewhere between 50 to 100 MW of power in 2018.

Solar power advances possible with new 'double-glazing' device

Phys.org: A new 'double-glazing' solar power device - which is unlike any existing solar panel and opens up fresh opportunities to develop more advanced photovoltaics - has been invented by University of Warwick researchers.

Recycled Mercedes Batteries Could Power Your House

Andrew Chesterton for The Motor Report: Mercedes-Benz is considering using old car batteries to power your house. The plan would see the German manufacturer rolling out a second-life program for its lithium-ion batteries to combat rival Tesla's Powerwall.

Kennedys, Kochs help kill planned wind farm off Cape Cod

Fox News: A plan to build scores of offshore, electricity-generating windmills within eyesight of the Kennedy compound and numerous other tony properties in one of America's wealthiest, and most scenic areas, is officially dead in the water.

Solar powered smart windows break 11% efficiency

John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The smart window lowers building temperatures by shifting from clear to opaque under strong sunlight. When the shift to opaque occurs, the solar prototype begins electricity production.

Combining solar panels and agriculture makes land more productive

Karen Graham for Digital Journal: An agrophotovoltaics (APV) pilot project conducted at Lake Constance has proven that farming and the use of solar panels can be compatible.

Tesla Fulfilled Its 100-Day Australia Battery Bet. What's That Mean for the Industry?

Julian Spector for GTM: "The world's largest gridscale battery - the Hornsdale Power Reserve battery - charged for the first time at 8.36am and reached 31 MW in 2 mins," tweeted Audrey Zibelman, the leader of Australia's energy market operator, on Friday.

World's largest building integrated 'organic' solar power installation completed

John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The ultra-environmentalist solar installation is seemingly 7-8% efficient, weighs 1/10th the weight of a standard solar panel and is held to the roof via an adhesive sticker on the backside of the panel.

Nebraska to Build Wind Farm to Power Facebook Data Center

AP via US News: Utility officials say a new wind farm being built in northeastern Nebraska will provide 200 megawatts of power a planned Facebook data center.

Meet Zero Mass Water, Whose Solar Panels Pull Drinking Water From The Air

Miguel Helft for Forbes: Each looks like solar panel mounted atop a metal box. The system extracts moisture out of the air at a rate of as much as five liters per day.

The largest solar power plant in the UK is to be developed without subsidy

Climate Action: The mega project will cover approximately 890 acres (365 hectares) - an area equivalent to more than 400 football pitches.

Meet the startups changing the future of energy

Bonnie Christian for Wired: At this year's WIRED Energy conference, some of the sector's most innovative early-stage companies pitched their ideas.

This weird $9 trick increases solar panel efficiency 5-17%

John Fitzgerald Weaver for electrek: Instead of perfectly spacing those 60 out - with small, defined areas between the cells - the company has allowed the solar cell's borders to overlap each other while increasing the cell count to 68.

Robotics principles help wave energy converters better absorb power of ocean waves

Phys.org: "We are working to create methodologies and technologies that private companies can harness to create wave energy devices that will enable them to sell power to the U.S. grid at a competitive price,"

New fractal-like concentrating solar power receivers are better at absorbing sunlight

Kristen Meub for Phys.org: India is interested in developing 1 megawatt or smaller CSP facilities that could provide the appropriate amount of power for a small village or community.
