Michael Holder for BusinessGreen, part of the Guardian Environment Network: Imperial College London has partnered with the climate change charity 10:10 to investigate the use of track-side solar panels to power trains, the two organisations announced yesterday. The renewable traction power project will see university researchers look at connecting solar panels directly to the lines that provide power to trains, a move that would bypass the electricity grid in order to more efficiently manage power demand from trains. According to the university, the research team will be the first in the world to test the “completely unique” idea, which it said would have a “wide impact with commercial applications on electrified rail networks all over the world”.

New DOE reports: Enhanced national security, billions a year for consumers, possible with improved transmission infrastructure
Following DOE's second installment of the Quadrennial Energy Review (QER) released last Friday, the lesser-noticed DOE study released today reinforces the QER's findings by putting hard numbers on the benefits new transmission provides American consumers.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) developed a method which boosts the longevity of high-efficiency photocathodes in photoelectrochemical water-splitting devices.
Jessica Shankleman and Chris Martin for Bloomberg: Solar power is now cheaper than coal in some parts of the world. In less than a decade, it’s likely to be the lowest-cost option almost everywhere. In 2016, countries from Chile to the United Arab Emirates broke records with deals to generate electricity from sunshine for less than 3 cents a kilowatt-hour, half the average global cost of coal power. Now, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Mexico are planning auctions and tenders for this year, aiming to drop prices even further. Taking advantage: Companies such as Italy’s Enel SpA and Dublin’s Mainstream Renewable Power, who gained experienced in Europe and now seek new markets abroad as subsidies dry up at home. Since 2009, solar prices are down 62 percent, with every part of the supply chain trimming costs. That’s help cut risk premiums on bank loans, and pushed manufacturing capacity to record levels. By 2025, solar may be cheaper than using coal on average globally, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Cont'd...
Integrated Water Management Summit to address current and future water challenges in the Middle East
The Integrated Water Management Summit will serve as a platform for water bodies in the region to discuss regulations, water management strategies and emerging technologies in water desalination and wastewater treatment.
Solar module prices continue to drop this week, but the scope is relatively limited in comparison to previous weeks. Although solar panel sectors continue to struggle with oversupply, the thinning trading in EU and US during holiday season, the stabilized solar panel prices in China, and the tempered pace of strong dollar have all resulted to a limited drop of module prices this week. Because the solar panel prices in EU and US had experienced sharp reduction, due to the fierce competition before the year-end of 2016, the descent of solar panel prices in these regions have seem to be relieved temporarily this week. Moreover, although solar panel prices in these regions remain depressed, a lull in trading from the holidays has led the prices to be less volatile. Meanwhile, solar panel prices in China remain firm this week thanks to the solid domestic demand.
Reuters: China will plow 2.5 trillion yuan ($361 billion) into renewable power generation by 2020, the country's energy agency said on Thursday, as the world's largest energy market continues to shift away from dirty coal power towards cleaner fuels. The investment will create over 13 million jobs in the sector, the National Energy Administration (NEA) said in a blueprint document that lays out its plan to develop the nation's energy sector during the five-year 2016 to 2020 period. The NEA said installed renewable power capacity including wind, hydro, solar and nuclear power will contribute to about half of new electricity generation by 2020. The agency did not disclose more details on where the funds, which equate to about $72 billion each year, would be spent. Still, the investment reflects Beijing's continued focus on curbing the use of fossil fuels, which have fostered the country's economic growth over the past decade, as it ramps up its war on pollution.
