Hanergy CEO Outlines Vision for New Era of Mobile Energy

Mr. Li expanded on the disruptive potential of thin-film solar, the development of mobile energy technology, the role of mobile energy in national energy strategy, and the future of the mobile energy industry.

Znshine Solar Launches Graphene-coating PV Series to Accelerate Cost Reduction and Efficiency Improvement

According to reports, the application of graphene film layer not only increases the light transmission performance of the glass itself, but also the Graphene-coating modules have an attractive investment return due to their superb hydrophilicity.

Engineers pioneer greener and cheaper technique for biofuel production

This is a major breakthrough in metabolic engineering and exhibits a foundational milestone in sustainable and cost-effective production of renewable biofuels and chemicals.

Visually appealing solar modules as architectural elements in building façades

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Metropolia University of Applied Sciences together with the industrial partners are investigating opportunities to extend integration of visually attractive solar modules into architecture of building façades.

A new way to find better battery materials

A new approach to analyzing and designing new ion conductors - a key component of rechargeable batteries - could accelerate the development of high-energy lithium batteries, and possibly other energy storage and delivery devices such as fuel cells, researchers say.

Soteria Forms Consortium to Promote New Architecture for Mass Production of Safe Lithium Ion Batteries

"This technology is too important for us to keep to ourselves and rely on our own capabilities to bring to market. Instead, we will allow broad access through the normal lithium ion and automotive supply chain," said Brian Morin, co-Founder and CEO of Soteria.

Renault is trying to create a 'smart electric island' with electric vehicles, V2G, and energy storage

Fred Lambert for Electrek: They are partnering with energy supplier Empresa de Electricidade da Madeira partner to "facilitate the energy transition" in Porto Santo island, Portugal.

Lithium Battery Life Could Double by Adding Graphene Girders to Silicon Electrodes

Graphite has been the default choice of active material for anodes in lithium-ion batteries since their original launch by Sony but researchers and manufacturers have long sought a way to replace graphite with silicon, as it is an abundantly available element with ten times

New Ship With Rigid Solar Sails Harnesses the Power of Sun and Wind at the Same Time

Kyree Leary for Futurism: Eco Marine Power has announced plans to test their patented solar sails next year. These EnergySails would utilize solar and wind energy simultaneously.

Florida company using 'solar cell of the future' to develop 500W, ~24% efficient panel

John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: SmartWire is part of an industry wide remaking of 'busbars. In order to squeeze greater efficiency from the same limited rooftop space, an evolution on the front side of the solar panel has been sped up.

Improving Utility Scale PV Plant Operational Reliability via Effective Monitoring

This article examines the hidden power-loss case study data from a utility scale array. The role of string-level monitoring in identifying hidden power losses and its use as a tool in maintaining a high-level PV array operational reliability will be discussed.

Batteries can't solve the world's biggest energy-storage problem. One startup has a solution.

Akshat Rathi for Quartz: Electrochaea has also figured out a way to power the whole enterprise with the excess green energy produced during particularly sunny and windy days that otherwise would have gone to waste, because there would have been no way to store it.

Solar power advances possible with new 'double-glazing' device

Phys.org: A new 'double-glazing' solar power device - which is unlike any existing solar panel and opens up fresh opportunities to develop more advanced photovoltaics - has been invented by University of Warwick researchers.

Solar powered smart windows break 11% efficiency

John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The smart window lowers building temperatures by shifting from clear to opaque under strong sunlight. When the shift to opaque occurs, the solar prototype begins electricity production.

Could Tesla Power its Electric Truck with Solar Panels?

Rhett Alain for Wired: How much power and how much energy (those are two different things) could you get from solar panels on the trailer?
