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).
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.
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.
Julian Spector for GTM: Solar industry heavyweights threw a lot of punches on the opening day of Solar Power International.
Arthur Neslen for The Guardian: EU duties on Chinese solar modules are set to rise 30% above market levels signalling 'huge negative effects' for businesses
DONG Energy: Vindeby Offshore Wind Farm near Lolland in the south east of Denmark was constructed in 1991 as a demonstration project which was to prove whether it was possible to generate green power offshore.
Nikkei Asian Review: The business model would strip away the hurdles farmers currently face when trying to enter commercial solar power generation. They would be able to secure enough electricity for their own needs and have a surplus from which to gain an additional source of income.
Steve Hanley for CleanTechnica: The solar cells are arranged in a cascading arrangement, then placed on a moving belt that takes them for a trip beneath the specially designed heaters. When they pop out the other end of the line, they are permanently bonded together.
Daniel Frankel for Fierce Cable: "What Comcast found is that when they marketed Sunrun to their customer base, and customers chose to go solar, it improved their customer satisfaction scores [and] their customer retention,"
