Katie FehrenbacherÂ for T he Guardian: Â Â At the edge of a plot of muddy farmland, a few miles down the road from the University of California at Davis, an engineer takes a few quick steps across crop rows and lets go of a three-foot drone. Within seconds, the device - which weighs less than 2lbs and carries a powerful camera - ascends hundreds of feet into the cold, clear, blue sky and begins to snap detailed photos of the ground far below, including a long row of large solar panels mounted on steel poles. This flight is just a test, demonstrated by Kingsley Chen, the drone fleet coordinator for SunPower at the solar company's research and development center, which is under construction and about a two-hour drive northeast of the San Francisco Bay Area. The drone will enable SunPower to survey a wide region and help design a solar power farm that can fit more solar panels on a piece of land, more quickly and for lower costs than it previously could.

Alec Schibanoff for Electric Light & Power: There actually is a crystal ball that permits you to see into the future. All you have to do is follow the patents. The latest patents in any technology will show you where that technology—and the businesses that use that technology—are going. This month, we take a look at the future of solar panel installation. The first solar power generator was displayed at the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1878. The first U.S. Patent for a solar power device was awarded the next year to Edward Weston. He actually received two patents: U.S. Patent No. 389,124 for an “Apparatus for Generating Solar Radiant Energy” and U.S. Patent No. 389,125 for the “Art of Utilizing Solar Radiant Energy.” It was not until 1954 that Bell Labs developed the first silicone-based solar panel.

Polysilicon prices that soared amid speculative frenzy last month just took another leg down, dropping slightly as rising production in the top manufacture spurred concern global supplies are once again topping demand. In China, polysilicon rally has stalled. Although demand remains solid, the sluggish downstream performance provides no driving forces for prices to further advance. Furthermore, as Chinese polysilicon manufacturers Daqo and TBEA continues to expand their production capacities and low-volume production by new entrant EastHope is expected to come on stream in 2Q17, the increasing supplies by Chinese polysilicon suppliers also spur the speculation that supply would probably top demand in near future.
