After a long streak of losses, solar panel prices eventually stabilize this week. Major module manufacturers have been squeezed by the rapidly increasing prices of cells and wafers so as to leave the solar panel prices unchanged, although they are actually planning to adjust their prices upwards, particularly in the regions where solar panel prices were mostly suppressed, such as China and India. Although the demand improves globally, it is still fragile. As a result of a mild demand recovery, major module makers hesitate to raise the prices immediately, leading the solar panel prices to stabilize this week.

"Zero Emissions. Zero Compromise." - New Campaign Highlights Excitement and Benefits of Fuel Cell Vehicles
The new "Zero Emissions. Zero Compromise." campaign emphasizes the driving excitement of emissions-free fuel cell vehicles and the important roles that fuel cells and hydrogen play by fostering technological innovation, curbing emissions, and increasing U.S. energy independence.
The grid is undergoing a revolution due to the introduction of new energy resources like solar & wind. In order to gain control of these resources and maintain supply & demand of electricity, utilities need to radically increase the number of grid control points while minimizing security vulnerabilities presented by automation & interconnectivity.
8minutenergy Initiates Development Platform Capital Raise and Investment Opportunity into Over 500 MW of Projects With Long Term PPAs and $1 Billion Enterprise Value
8minutenergy announces it is initiating a capital raising process to support the development of its 5.5 GW utility-scale solar PV project pipeline with BofA Merrill Lynch as its financial advisor.
Nicholas K. Geranios for AP: Scott Brusaw has a vision for the nation's roads. He believes the solar-powered glass pavers his company makes could transform thousands of miles of pavement into a new energy source. His business, Solar Roadways, recently unveiled its first public installation, in a downtown plaza in this northern Idaho resort town. It's 150 square feet of hexagon-shaped solar panels that people can walk and bicycle on. The company is working on proof that the panels, for which it has a patent, are strong enough and have enough traction to handle motor vehicles, including semitrailers. "Our plan is to replace all the asphalt and concrete," said Brusaw, noting concrete occupies over 48,000 square miles in the U.S. "If you cover it with solar panels, we can make three times our energy needs." Solar Roadways is among a growing number of companies embracing renewable energy as the U.S. aims to reduce carbon emissions by one-third from 2005 levels by 2030. Cont'd...
