Deutsche Messe launches its first-ever energy-themed exhibition in the USA
Megan Treacy for TreeHugger: We've seen our share of interesting wind power designs, but often the technology can't come anywhere close to matching what the traditional horizontal axis wind turbines can do. There's a reason that when we think of wind energy, we think of giant masts with rotating blades and it's because that design is incredibly effective -- just look at Scotland and other areas around the world that now get a majority of their electricity needs from wind power. The design isn't without its flaws; those rotating blades do pose a hazard to birds and bats and the cost of manufacturing and installing all of those giant parts can be expensive. When it comes to offshore wind power in the U.S., that has been a major roadblock. The energy generation potential is huge, but so is the cost. An energy start-up company called Accio Energy -- yes, a Harry Potter reference -- thinks it has a solution to that problem, one that will generate as much if not more energy from offshore wind than a traditional wind turbine, but at half the cost. There are no moving parts, instead Accio's technology consists of large permeable panels on masts that let the ocean winds blow right through. Cont'd...

Solar panel prices continue to slump this week amid the fierce competition in Northern America and the cooling demand in EU. Disparity between supply and demand in the US market results in strong cut-throat competition. As major module suppliers struggle to offer slashed prices in order to maintain high utilization rates and secure more orders, solar panel prices in the US has witnessed an obvious declining. In EU, with the demand for PV installations beginning to wane on the advent of holiday season, solar panel prices are also trending downwards. In India, the intensified competition have sent solar panel prices lower as many module suppliers are trying to compete for the PV projects in 1Q17. Meanwhile, the demand and prices of solar panel in China and Japan remain fairly stable that current module prices stay almost unchanged from last week.

Avery Thompson for Popular Mechanics: The world's largest solar power plant has just been completed in Kamuthi, in Tamil Nadu, India. The new plant adds 648 MW to the country's generating capacity. The Kamuthi Solar Power Project takes the title of world's largest solar plant from the Topaz Solar Farm in California, which was completed two years ago and has a capacity of 550 MW. The Kamuthi Solar Power Project was built in only 8 months, and cost $679 million to complete. It contains 2.5 million individual solar panels, covers an area of almost 4 square miles, and is expected to power 150,000 homes. Cont'd...
