Sian Bradley for Wired: "Tables are this big empty space, a surface that's not being used a lot. I saw their potential to be an independent power source, wherever you want to have it,"
The biggest change impacting energy infrastructure around the world is the growth of renewable energy resources, including distributed sources such as solar photovoltaics. At the transmission level, the result of this expansion will mean that electrical grids will take on an increasingly important role in balancing power flows across broader regions, with faster and more dynamic power exchanges taking place during fast solar transition times such as sunrises and sunsets.
Corporate brands choose NEXTracker for energy gains and technology benefits.
Keith Schneider for The Los Angeles Times: The trade commission's decision will be transmitted to President Trump on Nov. 13. Whatever the outcome, the tariff case has riven the $30-billion U.S. solar sector.
Brian Spaen for GreenMatters: Visions include the sun powering large landscapes of solar panels, and the electrical grid will also be powered by wind turbines. All of this is, along with "whole new kinds of energy the world has yet to hear of," is expected to power the gigantic metropolis.
Artificial photosynthesis requires only sunlight and simple organic chemicals to generate renewable energy cheaply and cleanly. While some limited progress has been made in this area, until now, no proposed solution has been nearly efficient enough to warrant commercial use.
If you're considering installing a solar panel system on your home, here are five common myths - and why you shouldn't believe them.
Roger Aitken for Forbes: Members of the market place can have their solar cells installed and rented to hospitals, factories, schools and rural communities in Africa and the Middle East, earning them income from solar powering the developing world.
Despite the resistance of giant fossil fuel enterprises, and despite the misguided efforts of some local, state and federal governments to forestall solar energy (as well as other alternative sources), the march has begun. While the U.S. may be behind Europe right now, the inevitability is a foregone conclusion.
Activity in support of corporate procurement of renewable energy has been particularly strong in the United States over the last few years.
Avery Thompson for Popular Mechanics: By imitating the microscopic structure of a butterfly wing, a group of researchers designed a more efficient solar cell.
University of Delaware: UD-led research team determines that constructing offshore wind turbines in port is the most cost effective method
Not only is transitioning to 100% renewable energy possible, but the benefits far outweigh the costs and obstacles.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: Their goal in designing the Solar Block is to lower the cost and speed the deployment of utility-scale solar power. The units can be daisy chained into larger plants.
What did You Miss When You Bought Your Solar System? How to Assure You Save For Your Systems Life Time
Though there is a perception that maintenance costs money and a solar system should run on its own, preventative maintenance can increase your ROI by 25% and reduce your cost significantly.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
