Allison Mills for Phys.org: Distributed microgrid tech can secure the electrical grids at military bases to reduce the impact of cyberattacks, physical attacks from terrorists and natural disasters.
Nichola Groom, Reuters: Tesla's SolarCity reported a drop of nearly 40 percent in solar installations for the first quarter on Wednesday, the latest sign of a reversal in fortunes for the once high-flying residential solar industry.
Michael J. Coren for Quartz: As the shadow of the moon passes over North America, the eclipse is expected to knock out about 70 megawatts a minute- two to three times faster than the typically daily drop, reports the California Independent System Operator.
Anmar Frangoul for CNBC: Released on Tuesday, the GWEC's Global Wind Report: Annual Market Update forecasts nearly 60 GW of wind installations this year, with cumulative installed capacity seen reaching more than 800 GW by the end of 2021.
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Wind and solar are about to become unstoppable, natural gas and oil production are approaching their peak, and electric cars and batteries for the grid are waiting to take over. This is the world Donald Trump inherited as U.S. president. And yet his energy plan is to cut regulations to resuscitate the one sector that's never coming back: coal.
Clean energy actions saving companies $3.7 billion a year, cutting annual carbon pollution equivalent to 45 coal-fired power plants
Jess Shankleman , Brian Parkin , and Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: Offshore wind turbines are about to become higher than the Eiffel Tower, allowing the industry to supply subsidy-free clean power to the grid on a massive scale for the first time.
American wind power added jobs over 9 times faster than the overall economy amid robust growth for another year, according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), which released its 2016 U.S. Wind Industry Annual Market Report today at the Minnesota State Capitol.
Lucas Mearian for Computer World: Between 2015 and 2021, China is expected to install 40% of all worldwide wind energy and 36% of all solar
Wall Street Pit: If the moon can be turned into a solar power station, our energy problems for sustainable and affordable electric power on a global scale will be solved.
Anindya Upadhyay for Bloomberg: The price of solar power in India fell to a record low of 3.15 rupees (5 U.S. cents) a kilowatt-hour in a competitive tender where French firm Engie SA's local arm won rights to develop 250 megawatts.
Renews: Eon is collaborating with Dutch company Ampyx Power to develop the latter's airborne wind energy system. The agreement aims to further the development of the system towards commercial deployment.
Derek Markham for TreeHugger: Zero Mass Water's Source device is a rooftop solar device that produces water instead of just electricity.
Futurism: Tesla just updated their website to include images of their new low-profile solar panels. The panels integrate seamlessly with the Tesla Powerwall and can be ordered this month for production in the summer.
Reuters: Denmark's Vestas, the world's largest wind turbine maker, is keen to expand into areas such as energy storage to increase the global use of wind power and bring costs down.

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.
