Alice Bell for The Guardian: A technique has been devised that allows electricity to flow directly from solar panels to electrified train tracks to the trains themselves making solar powered trains more feasible than ever before
Steve Gillman for Horizon: Rising populations and climate change are putting pressure on the water needed for agriculture but a solar-powered irrigation system may reduce the amount that farmers use - while simultaneously slashing the sector's greenhouse gas emissions.
Echo Huang for Quartz: The Berkeley Energy Group is planning to turn a strip mine in the Appalachians into a solar power plant that could produce somewhere between 50 to 100 MW of power in 2018.
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.
Fox News: A plan to build scores of offshore, electricity-generating windmills within eyesight of the Kennedy compound and numerous other tony properties in one of America's wealthiest, and most scenic areas, is officially dead in the water.
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.
Karen Graham for Digital Journal: An agrophotovoltaics (APV) pilot project conducted at Lake Constance has proven that farming and the use of solar panels can be compatible.
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?
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The ultra-environmentalist solar installation is seemingly 7-8% efficient, weighs 1/10th the weight of a standard solar panel and is held to the roof via an adhesive sticker on the backside of the panel.
AP via US News: Utility officials say a new wind farm being built in northeastern Nebraska will provide 200 megawatts of power a planned Facebook data center.
Miguel Helft for Forbes: Each looks like solar panel mounted atop a metal box. The system extracts moisture out of the air at a rate of as much as five liters per day.
Climate Action: The mega project will cover approximately 890 acres (365 hectares) - an area equivalent to more than 400 football pitches.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for electrek: Instead of perfectly spacing those 60 out - with small, defined areas between the cells - the company has allowed the solar cell's borders to overlap each other while increasing the cell count to 68.
Kristen Meub for Phys.org: India is interested in developing 1 megawatt or smaller CSP facilities that could provide the appropriate amount of power for a small village or community.
Sian Bradley for Wired: "Tables are this big empty space, a surface that's not being used a lot. I saw their potential to be an independent power source, wherever you want to have it,"

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
The most compact versatile rail-less PV mounting system under the sun. Instead of placing solar panels on top of long rails, simply attach E Mount AIR to rafters or the roof decking. Once panels are fastened to the roof, the system array is electrically bonded. The result is a visually seamless PV installation that stands the test of time. - Truly "One With The Roof". - PE stamped cert. letters available, UL 2703 Classified, ASTM 2140 fully waterproof. The one and only with integrated flexible flashing certified by the ICC! All the best quality. Only from Roof Tech
