This Paint May Pick Up Where Solar Panels Leave Off

Katherine Lin for NBC News MACH: A team of researchers in Australia have created an experimental paint that attracts water molecules from the air and chops them up to produce hydrogen.

Report: U.S. solar demand could drop 66 percent if trade case succeeds:

Nichola Groom for Reuters: The U.S. solar industry would see two-thirds of expected demand dry up over the next five years if a trade case aimed at propping up the domestic panel manufacturing industry is successful, a new report said on Monday.

Capturing Energy with Nanotechnology

One goal of nanotechnology is to improve photovoltaic solar electricity generation. The thermodynamic limit of 80% productivity is well beyond the capabilities of current photovoltaic technologies, whose performance now is only about 43%.

Data Rules: Intelligent Solar Trackers Reduce Risk, Downtime and O&M Costs

Developing a predictable O&M strategy at the outset of a project will ensure the bankability and a robust ROI throughout the system's lifetime. Project owners and developers that thoroughly evaluate O&M considerations of their tracker investments will find that the higher energy performance, predictive analytics and long-term reliability of single-axis, self-powered trackers will provide a lower overall levelized cost of energy than fixed-tilt racking or conventional tracking systems.

Why Wind and Solar Are Better Together

Currently, wind generation sites are the cheapest version to build in the United States. Solar tends to be significantly more expensive to develop and construct. Creating one site for both forms is much more affordable, yet offers all the advantages covered above.

Panasonic Joins Push to Put Photovoltaics on More Car Roofs

By Chisaki Watanabe, Emi Nobuhiro, and Kevin Buckland for Bloomberg: The tech giant thinks solar roof panels are the future for hybrids and EVs.

New Biofuel Could Work in Regular Diesel Engines

Edd Gent for Scientific American: The need for specially designed engines to run biodiesel is holding back the technology

Solar panels to be fitted on 250 trains in India

Climate Action UN: According to local reports, Indian Railways will install flexible solar panels and batteries to power lights and fans on board 250 of the network's trains.

Global Wind And Solar Costs To Fall Even Faster, While Coal Fades Even In China And India

This year's forecast from BNEF sees solar energy costs dropping a further 66% by 2040, and onshore wind by 47%, with renewables undercutting the majority of existing fossil power stations by 2030

Future trucks fueled by hydrogen created with solar power: Exhaust? Pure water vapor

Science Daily: Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as "exhaust."

Why rising temperatures don't make solar power rise

Isha Salian for San Francisco Chronicle: Sunny skies sound like a positive for energy production, but this week's heatwave in California isn't a boon for solar power.

Why Design Matters for Solar O&M

When evaluating SATs, I want to consider whether the failure of any individual hardware component could threaten the system's overall production. In the case of a decentralized SAT, for example, each row's independent motor is powered by its own dedicated solar panel (with integrated battery backup), making external power cables obsolete.

3 Ways to Prevent a Solavalanche

Because the face of solar panels are fabricated from glass, there's no surface area/friction for snow to grip onto, and nothing to stop it from building up, eventually releasing in an avalanche manner, in the form of what we Alpine-ites like to refer to as a solavalanche.

Can Offshore Wind Power Revive U.S. Ports?

Benjamin Storrow for Scientific American: Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Maryland are all eyeing up manufacturing and maintenance businesses that would support wind energy
