Chris Martin for Bloomberg: The U.S. Energy Department awarded $46.2 million in research grants to improve solar energy technologies and reduce costs to 3 cents per kilowatt-hour by 2030.
Sustaintech, short for sustainable technologies, are technologies which provide environmental and social value and help advance a better future for humanity. They leverage intelligent technologies and have a high degree of internet-integration to reduce environmental impact, and enhance efficiency and resource productivity.
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.
Amber Kinetics and Global Energy Giant Enel S.p.A. Announce Agreement to Assess Innovative Flywheel Storage Technology
Paige Leuschner for SmartCitiesDive: In the energy industry, utilities are employing these solutions to provide customers with more information about their energy consumption.
Working with partners in industry and academia, NREL delivers the scientific building blocks for new energy technologies that drive the country's economic growth. NREL's world-class researchers, facilities, tools, and analysis yield innovations that create new business opportunities and greatly reduce the risk of investment for energy companies and manufacturers.
Lacy Cooke for Inhabitat: Toronto Hydro is testing a grid-scale energy storage system that can be attached to poles already present around the city.
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.
One goal of nanotechnology is to improve photovoltaic solar electricity generation. The thermodynamic limit of 80% productivity is well beyond the capabilities of current photovoltaic technologies, whose performance now is only about 43%.
By Chisaki Watanabe, Emi Nobuhiro, and Kevin Buckland for Bloomberg: The tech giant thinks solar roof panels are the future for hybrids and EVs.
Edd Gent for Scientific American: The need for specially designed engines to run biodiesel is holding back the technology
