Nichola Groom for Reuters: The 10 fastest-growing U.S. solar markets between the second quarters of 2016 and 2017 were Western, Midwestern or Southern states that voted for Trump.
Eli Kintisch for Science: Floating wind turbines at sea could create up to three times as much electricity as turbines on land, increasing the energy potential for a technology that has yet to be proven at scale.
Justin Hughes for The Drive: The 30th anniversary of the solar car race shows how far technology has progressed since its inception.
BBC: Renewable energy entrepreneur Elon Musk says he could rebuild Puerto Rico's shattered electrical infrastructure with his solar energy technology.
Anthony Dipaola for Bloomberg: The energy ministry said Abu Dhabi's Masdar and Electricite de France SA bid to supply power from a 300-megawatt photovoltaic plant for as little as 6.69736 halalas a kilowatt hour, or 1.79 cents, according to a webcast of the bid-opening ceremony on Tuesday in Riyadh.
Geraint Thomas for BBC News: The Rapid Roll system allows flexible solar panels to be unrolled like a carpet from a trailer in two minutes.
Jess Shankleman for Bloomberg Technology: The European Union may create 716,000 jobs with a target for member states to produce 35 percent of their energy from renewables within 12 years.
Tina Casey for CleanTechnica: Bijel is short for "bicontinuous jammed emulsion gels." If that sounds somewhat mysterious, it's really not. You can almost DIY your own bijel right at the dinner table. Here's the explainer from Berkeley Lab:
Reuters: "The cost of solar panels and batteries has fallen dramatically over the past few years, and this first subsidy-free development at Clayhill is a significant moment for clean energy in the UK," Claire Perry, minister for Climate Change and Industry said.
Stephen Smiley and Caroline Winter for ABC AU: Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).
Peter Kelly-Detwiler for Forbes: The SRUSD will be able to cut energy costs (during some months, as much as 70-80% of the district's electricity needs will be met by the systems).
Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: The technology would optimize how electricity flows in and out of storage devices such as batteries and points of consumption, in real time. This is expected to significantly increase the efficiency of the grid and save consumers money.
Fran Ryan for The Recoder: The farm at the University of Massachusetts Crop and Animal Research and Education Center on North River Road in South Deerfield is offering proof that solar arrays and agriculture don't have to be at odds, but can actually exist together within the same field.
Adele Peters for Fast Company: The ability of some residences and businesses to stay functioning as the power went out around them shows the growing potential of local generation and microgrids. Now those batteries just have to get a lot cheaper.
Barbara Eldredge for Curbed: Indeed, MIT researchers have reinvented firebricks, a Bronze-Age technology created by the Hittites-who occupied what is today Turkey, in the 17th century BC. Firebricks were designed by the Hittites to retain heat for long periods of time, if properly insulated.
