Asia tops the list for the continent that would need to designate the largest space to power its biggest cities by solar. Cities in Asia place in at seven different spaces in the top 10, where the largest amount of space is required.
Stephen Smiley and Caroline Winter for ABC AU: Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).
The ITC's decision is disappointing for nearly 9,000 U.S. solar companies and the 260,000 Americans they employ. Foreign-owned companies that brought business failures on themselves are attempting to exploit American trade laws to gain a bailout for their bad investments.
Peter Kelly-Detwiler for Forbes: The SRUSD will be able to cut energy costs (during some months, as much as 70-80% of the district's electricity needs will be met by the systems).
There are many reasons to purchase a battery system for the home or business, starting with natural disasters, but a battery system, tied into a solar system, will maximize self-consumption of solar power, reduce grid costs, increase the resiliency of electricity, and take a home or business completely off grid with minimal fossil fuels.
Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: The technology would optimize how electricity flows in and out of storage devices such as batteries and points of consumption, in real time. This is expected to significantly increase the efficiency of the grid and save consumers money.
Seattle is among 17 major North American cities whose "2030 District" is driving high-efficiency district energy systems to share and exchange energy and heat between building partners - saving energy, money and maintenance costs, and providing more reliable power.
Fran Ryan for The Recoder: The farm at the University of Massachusetts Crop and Animal Research and Education Center on North River Road in South Deerfield is offering proof that solar arrays and agriculture don't have to be at odds, but can actually exist together within the same field.
Adele Peters for Fast Company: The ability of some residences and businesses to stay functioning as the power went out around them shows the growing potential of local generation and microgrids. Now those batteries just have to get a lot cheaper.
Batteries may degrade gracefully up to a point, then experience "rapid fade" and lose capacity quickly. A system that has been designed to meet a given level of demand will, at some point, be unable to do so.
Barbara Eldredge for Curbed: Indeed, MIT researchers have reinvented firebricks, a Bronze-Age technology created by the Hittites-who occupied what is today Turkey, in the 17th century BC. Firebricks were designed by the Hittites to retain heat for long periods of time, if properly insulated.
ElectrIQ's fully-integrated energy storage and home energy management solution.
Julian Spector for GTM: Solar industry heavyweights threw a lot of punches on the opening day of Solar Power International.
Arthur Neslen for The Guardian: EU duties on Chinese solar modules are set to rise 30% above market levels signalling 'huge negative effects' for businesses
DONG Energy: Vindeby Offshore Wind Farm near Lolland in the south east of Denmark was constructed in 1991 as a demonstration project which was to prove whether it was possible to generate green power offshore.

EDF Renewables offers the same innovative solutions that maximize the performance of our own 5.2 GW of installed projects. Because we're not an equipment manufacturer, our recommendations are transparent and data-driven. We cover the entire project lifecycle: from pre-commissioning support, through warranty and post warranty operation, to late stage and decommissioning.
