Archimedes once remarked that if given a lever of sufficient length and a fulcrum against which to place it, he could move the world. Musk's first Gigafactory, aptly (if unimaginatively) named 'Gigafactory 1' is a Nevada-based production facility tasked with nothing less than shifting the world toward clean energy.
Fred Lambert for Electrek: German electric car startup Sono Motors unveiled the crowdfunded prototype of its battery and solar-powered vehicle; the Sion.
Sonali Paul for Reuters: One of Australia's leading power suppliers, AGL Energy (AGL.AX), has offered cheap batteries to 1,000 homes with solar panels as part of what it describes as the world's biggest "virtual power plant" in Adelaide, South Australia, a state plagued by blackouts over the past year.
High-performance and flexible multiport power converters will be a key enabling component for solar-plus-storage adoption, and deployment. The power conversion system is critical when implementing solar coupled with storage, as the efficiency of conversion will come into play at several stages throughout the system: PV to grid, PV to battery, and battery to grid.
Mark Bergen for Bloomberg Technology: Alphabet Inc.'s secretive X skunk works has another idea that could save the world. This one, code named Malta, involves vats of salt and antifreeze.
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.
Smooth surfaces may prevent harmful deposits from working their way into a solid electrolyte.
In partnership with Schneider Electric, Blackstone translates energy and sustainability data into business benefits.
Events attracted high-quality attendees and served as a sounding board for recent industry triumphs and upcoming challenges
Hawaii's PUC allowed the utilities to end their popular net metering programs and replace them with the Customer Self Supply program. The CSS program requires zero exportation of self-generated power back to the grid, which can most-efficiently be accomplished by integrating battery storage into the system.
Julia Pyper for GTM: But will that language make it into the final version?
Irina Slav for OilPrice.com: Siemens and AES launched a joint venture that focuses exclusively on battery storage systems.
Dom Galeon for Futurism: "An informed understanding of the potential future costs of electricity storage technologies is essential to quantify their uptake as well as the uptake of low-carbon technologies reliant on storage," the researchers wrote.
Industry leaders take the stage at the premier solar and energy storage event; hundreds of exhibitors show off emerging technologies in buzzing exhibition hall

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
