Ivan Penn and Russ Mitchell for The LA Times: Like some kind of 21st century Willy Wonka, audacious entrepreneur Elon Muskchose a prime spot on the Universal Studios Hollywood backlot tour to unveil his latest attempt to energize an industry — roofs that generate solar power but look like no other. Musk, the chief executive of Tesla Motors and chairman of SolarCity, showcased a line of high-design solar roof tiles that would replace clunky solar panels and tie into an upgraded version of the Tesla wall-mounted battery for those times when the sun doesn’t shine. The glass solar shingles resemble French slate, Tuscan barrel tile or more conventional roofing materials with a textured or smooth surface. “The key is to make solar look good,” Musk said during the product introduction staged on the old set of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” series, where he had re-roofed four of the Wisteria Lane houses. “If this is done right, all roofs will have solar.” Cont'd..

12,000 visitors, 800 conference attendees and 240 exhibitors: October 21 marked the end of the hugely successful eighth Intersolar India, India's largest exhibition and conference for the solar industry, which was held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai. The number of visitors was 10% higher than at the previous year's event, and the number of exhibitors increased by an impressive 20%. The positive development of the Indian solar market was noticeable at the exhibition. Businesses and investors made the most of the opportunity to network, and numerous agreements and collaborations were initiated. The organizers also reported positively on the conference, where around 800 attendees discussed India's solar industry with 122 speakers.
The first wind turbine certificate has been issued by the IECRE, the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy Applications.
Katie Herzog for GRIST: Half a million solar panels were installed every day in 2015. According to a new report from the International Energy Agency (IEA), renewable energy, mostly solar and wind, accounted for more than half of all new electric capacity added in the world last year, a 15 percent jump from 2014. Globally, there is now more renewable power capacity than coal power capacity. Clean energy growth was especially high in China, which was responsible for about 40 percent of all new clean energy capacity. Get this: In China in 2015, two wind turbines were installed every hour. This surge in renewables, according to the IEA, can be attributed to policy changes, lowered costs, and improvements in technology. Cont'd...

2nd Edition of Innovation and Technology Award Solar Brazil Recognizes the Leading Players in the Sector
The price uptrend of polysilicon persists this week. After experiencing the inventory selloff in September, the inventory pressure forcing listed producers to lessen stock levels by offering price discounts is largely relieved. Meanwhile, the demand in the downstream has also seen noticeable improvement. The polysilicon makers in China have seize the timing to spike the prices since October. Moreover, several Chinese polysilicon makers are conducting annual maintenance that have raised the speculation of limited overall supply and contributed to the uptick in price as well. On the other hand, the non-Chinese polysilicon makers, who responded to the price uptrend not as faster as Chinese rivals in the previous weeks, have accelerated the pace on increasing the quotes this week as to trim the gap with polysilicon prices in China.
State and federal officials today released a pair of marine wildlife studies on the presence of endangered whale, turtle and bird species to inform federal offshore wind development permitting processes.
The North Madison Fire Company voted in favor of installing solar panels on the roof of their station as a way to stabilize future electric costs and assure operating funds. Recognizing that solar panel fires have been on the rise throughout the US the Company looked for suitable options for a fire detection system to monitor the solar panels. Ultimately they choose Protectowire CTI (Confirmed Temperature Initiation) Series Linear Heat Detector as a protective measure.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
