Wanyee Li for Ottawa Metro: A group of scientists say now is the time to invest in wave energy because B.C. has the potential to become a destination for wave-technology companies around the world.
As more smart home and storage products become available, it is easy to imagine a world where consumers have much more control over how they use their energy.
According to SNL Energy, the economic value of energy storage at maximum market potential in the U.S. is $228.4 billion over a 10-year period.
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.
The fossil fuel fight goes on for USC scientists as they develop a new method for creating reversible hydrogen storage based on methanol, with no carbon emissions
Clean energy actions saving companies $3.7 billion a year, cutting annual carbon pollution equivalent to 45 coal-fired power plants
Scott Collie for New Atlas: Tesla has made its Powerwall plans clear, and Mercedes-Benz Energy has been talking a big game with its energy storage systems, which will soon be finding their way into homes in the UK.
Establishing a remote connection to a device allows users to program custom settings off-site. This is especially useful for systems that may need seasonal adjustments or need small adjustments to the custom settings for improved performance.
From Power-Technology: High-technology company Wello's Penguin wave energy converter (WEC) has successfully generated power into the national grid off the west coast of Orkney in Scotland, UK.
Solar Decathlon 2017 takes place in Denver, Colorado, at the 61st & Peña Station October 5-9 and October 12-15, 2017.
Futurism: Tesla just updated their website to include images of their new low-profile solar panels. The panels integrate seamlessly with the Tesla Powerwall and can be ordered this month for production in the summer.
Reuters: Denmark's Vestas, the world's largest wind turbine maker, is keen to expand into areas such as energy storage to increase the global use of wind power and bring costs down.
Energy Harvesting Europe Article: Governments, manufacturers and other interested parties agonise about what to do as multiple gigafactories spew out vast numbers of lithium-ion batteries that almost always die before the life of the equipment in which they are placed and they are linked to toxins, fires and other nasties. As the world moves to structural electronics instead of the nostalgic old components-in-a-box designs, the batteries are holding up the party because even solid state ones tend to swell and shrink with each cycle, bursting a smart structure apart.
David Nield for Science Alert: Construction will soon be underway on a gigantic solar farm in South Australia that's set to be the biggest of its kind in the world - thanks to 3.4 million solar panels and 1.1 million individual batteries. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, at which point the huge plant should outdo all other solar farms in terms of overall battery capacity - although other solar facilities are larger in terms of land area.
Joshua S Hill for CleanTechnica: The US National Renewable Energy Laboratory has published a landmark report extensively detailing component and system-level cost breakdowns for residential PV solar systems equipped with energy storage. The decreasing cost of solar systems has been well documented over the last several years, with increased innovation and decreasing manufacturing costs combining to make solar PV a competitive and economic choice for residents and utilities across the United States, and in fact the world. As such, the costs attributed to the development of residential and utility-scale solar projects has been well defined for some time - even though that figure keeps decreasing.
