Kristen Meub for Phys.org: India is interested in developing 1 megawatt or smaller CSP facilities that could provide the appropriate amount of power for a small village or community.
The higher power density of the NeON R delivers more energy and cost savings in space limited situations. In addition to a higher energy output, the N-type cells use almost no boron, significantly reducing Light Induced Degradation.
Sian Bradley for Wired: "Tables are this big empty space, a surface that's not being used a lot. I saw their potential to be an independent power source, wherever you want to have it,"
The biggest change impacting energy infrastructure around the world is the growth of renewable energy resources, including distributed sources such as solar photovoltaics. At the transmission level, the result of this expansion will mean that electrical grids will take on an increasingly important role in balancing power flows across broader regions, with faster and more dynamic power exchanges taking place during fast solar transition times such as sunrises and sunsets.
Corporate brands choose NEXTracker for energy gains and technology benefits.
Keith Schneider for The Los Angeles Times: The trade commission's decision will be transmitted to President Trump on Nov. 13. Whatever the outcome, the tariff case has riven the $30-billion U.S. solar sector.
Brian Spaen for GreenMatters: Visions include the sun powering large landscapes of solar panels, and the electrical grid will also be powered by wind turbines. All of this is, along with "whole new kinds of energy the world has yet to hear of," is expected to power the gigantic metropolis.
Artificial photosynthesis requires only sunlight and simple organic chemicals to generate renewable energy cheaply and cleanly. While some limited progress has been made in this area, until now, no proposed solution has been nearly efficient enough to warrant commercial use.
If you're considering installing a solar panel system on your home, here are five common myths - and why you shouldn't believe them.
Roger Aitken for Forbes: Members of the market place can have their solar cells installed and rented to hospitals, factories, schools and rural communities in Africa and the Middle East, earning them income from solar powering the developing world.
Despite the resistance of giant fossil fuel enterprises, and despite the misguided efforts of some local, state and federal governments to forestall solar energy (as well as other alternative sources), the march has begun. While the U.S. may be behind Europe right now, the inevitability is a foregone conclusion.
Activity in support of corporate procurement of renewable energy has been particularly strong in the United States over the last few years.
Avery Thompson for Popular Mechanics: By imitating the microscopic structure of a butterfly wing, a group of researchers designed a more efficient solar cell.
University of Delaware: UD-led research team determines that constructing offshore wind turbines in port is the most cost effective method
Not only is transitioning to 100% renewable energy possible, but the benefits far outweigh the costs and obstacles.

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
The IMO FireRaptor provides three forms of Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown to ZERO VOLTS in case of fire or other emergency: Manual Panel Shutdown to 0V Operated from Ground Level, Automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V at >85°C (185°F) Temperature, and an automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V on External Power Loss. The FireRaptor can be installed without any set-up and with any string inverter as its functionality is completely independent. "Plug & Play" style installation using industry standard connectors is easy, whether fitted to new installs or retrofitted to existing projects to upgrade fire safety functionality. Meeting NEC2017's regulation to switch DC current at the PV panel in under 30 seconds, FireRaptor is remains one of the safest and most effective means of isolating DC current at the source, and the only rapid shutdown with a 20 year warranty.
