Sungrow, the global leading PV inverter system solution supplier, announced that the world's largest floating PV power plant of 40MW with Sungrow's PV inverters utilized has been successfully connected to the grid in Huainan, China.
Phys.org: Smart homes need smart batteries. Current systems overuse power, which can shorten the life of batteries and the devices they power. Future batteries may get an intelligence boost to mitigate the problem.
Jillian Ambrose for Telegraph: The wind developer behind the world's largest working wind turbines has said the size of its giant offshore blades, currently in UK waters, will double again within seven years.
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: Scientists have developed a simpler new process for converting coffee grounds to biofuel.
Bobby Magill, Grist: America's first offshore wind farm just helped to shut down a small diesel-fired electric power plant on Block Island, Rhode Island.
Leonard Hyman & William Tilles for OilPrice.com: By 2030, solar-plus-storage could threaten the economic relevance of their distribution grids by making less necessary the connection with the local electric utility.
Christoph Steitz for Reuters: Europe's embattled solar power industry has been dealt a fresh blow, with cut-price competition from China driving Germany's SolarWorld into insolvency.
Robert Ferris for CNBC: Tesla said the first two styles of its solar roof will be priced at about $21.85 per square foot. That price is slightly lower than the $24.50 per square foot that Consumer Reports had expected.
Andy Colthorpe for Energy Storage News: Two Congressional representatives in the US have united across party political lines to form the Advanced Energy Storage Caucus, a group dedicated to educating Members of Congress on the benefits of the nascent technology.
Megan Treacy for TreeHugger: The long distance from shore has the benefit of being beyond the horizon so there is no visible evidence of it from shore but it also carries the benefit of harnessing the stronger winds in that area.
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.
Wanyee Li for Ottawa Metro: A group of scientists say now is the time to invest in wave energy because B.C. has the potential to become a destination for wave-technology companies around the world.
Mark Harrington for Newsday: Block Island on Monday will formally throw the switch on a first-time connection to the New England energy grid through a new cable to the mainland, and begin receiving power from the country's first five offshore wind turbines.
Matt Shipman for Phys.org: "This is a proof of concept, but the idea of using water or other solvents to 'tune' the transport of ions in a layered material is very exciting," says Veronica Augustyn, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering at NC State and corresponding author of a paper describing the work.
