Justin Hughes for The Drive: The 30th anniversary of the solar car race shows how far technology has progressed since its inception.
Geraint Thomas for BBC News: The Rapid Roll system allows flexible solar panels to be unrolled like a carpet from a trailer in two minutes.
Tina Casey for CleanTechnica: Bijel is short for "bicontinuous jammed emulsion gels." If that sounds somewhat mysterious, it's really not. You can almost DIY your own bijel right at the dinner table. Here's the explainer from Berkeley Lab:
Steve Hanley for CleanTechnica: The solar cells are arranged in a cascading arrangement, then placed on a moving belt that takes them for a trip beneath the specially designed heaters. When they pop out the other end of the line, they are permanently bonded together.
American Institute of Physics via Science Daily: Researchers have created green solar panels using soft imprint lithography to print an array of nanocylinders that scatter green light
Fred Lambert for Electrek: German electric car startup Sono Motors unveiled the crowdfunded prototype of its battery and solar-powered vehicle; the Sion.
To address the rapid changes in the energy market, Siemens is partnering with leading accelerator Plug and Play to identify and work with startups that have the potential to disrupt the energy industry.
Phys.org: Solar cells can generate electricity in an environmentally friendly way, but current, complex fabrication costs make the technology expensive.
Chris Martin for Bloomberg: The U.S. Energy Department awarded $46.2 million in research grants to improve solar energy technologies and reduce costs to 3 cents per kilowatt-hour by 2030.
Amber Kinetics and Global Energy Giant Enel S.p.A. Announce Agreement to Assess Innovative Flywheel Storage Technology
Tereza Pultarova, Live Science Contributor: The windows have solar cells installed in the edges at a specific angle that allows the incoming solar light to be efficiently transformed into electricity.
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.
By Chisaki Watanabe, Emi Nobuhiro, and Kevin Buckland for Bloomberg: The tech giant thinks solar roof panels are the future for hybrids and EVs.
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.

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
