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.
-- Long-term strategy for using single-crystal metal particles -- Technology will be used in diverse technology applications of Merck
The Harbor Smart Battery provides clean energy storage with revolutionary simplicity and automated performance.
David J. Unger for Midwest Energy News: Batteries - whether they're powering a smartphone or storing energy on the grid - take a beating.
Johnny Lieu for Mashable: Researchers at the University of Newcastle in Australia are testing solar cells that use electronic inks printed on plastic film to conduct electricity.
Clear coating developed for the military has incredible potential for solar, wind and other alternative sources of energy.
Traditional hydrophobic coatings are clear and abrasion resistant but do not shed fluid easily. Superhydrophobic coatings are generally great at shedding water but are not clear, and are easily removed. Whether it's abrasion resistance, oil repellency or visual clarity, conventional coatings have their limitations.
Sarah Fecht for Popular Science: The experiment is set to fly to the space station this week
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: Scientists have developed a simpler new process for converting coffee grounds to biofuel.
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Elon Musk says orders will begin today. Pricing details have yet to be revealed.
Silicon Foundry and GaN Start-Up Achieve Major Milestone in Establishing a 200-mm, Fully CMOS-Compatible Process While GaN Power Products Gain Market Traction
Matt Shipman for Phys.org: "This is a proof of concept, but the idea of using water or other solvents to 'tune' the transport of ions in a layered material is very exciting," says Veronica Augustyn, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering at NC State and corresponding author of a paper describing the work.
Giuliano Balestrieri, Business Insider Italia: The same heat that burns your feet when you walk on sand could be the key to making clean energy and endless electricity. An Italian firm, Magaldi Group, is doing so by using sand as a storage system to eventually concentrate solar energy.
Wind gusts can increase wind speeds at rates and for durations just long enough for the energy to enter the system, but sometimes too fast for conventional pitch control systems to respond adequately.
Wall Street Pit: If the moon can be turned into a solar power station, our energy problems for sustainable and affordable electric power on a global scale will be solved.
Derek Markham for TreeHugger: Zero Mass Water's Source device is a rooftop solar device that produces water instead of just electricity.

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
