David J. Unger for Midwest Energy News: Batteries - whether they're powering a smartphone or storing energy on the grid - take a beating.
Conor Ryan for Energy Storage News: A first prototype of the storage system is expected to be developed later in 2017, with both companies planning to secure a commercial pilot plant during 2018.
Leanna Garfield for Business Insider: Not considering the multi-billion-dollar construction cost of the wall itself, the solar array installation could cost between $1.4 billion and $4.2 billion
Joshua S Hill for CleanTechnica: The United States had its largest ever quarter for energy storage deployment this year, deploying 234 megawatt-hours worth of energy storage across the first quarter of the year.
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.
Jessica Twentyman for Internet of Business: Automaker Renault is partnering with UK-based smart home energy storage specialist Powervault in a deal that will see batteries previously used to power electric vehicles (EVs) redeployed to store solar power in homes.
Phys.org: Smart homes need smart batteries. Current systems overuse power, which can shorten the life of batteries and the devices they power. Future batteries may get an intelligence boost to mitigate the problem.
