This weird $9 trick increases solar panel efficiency 5-17%

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.

Robotics principles help wave energy converters better absorb power of ocean waves

Phys.org: "We are working to create methodologies and technologies that private companies can harness to create wave energy devices that will enable them to sell power to the U.S. grid at a competitive price,"

New fractal-like concentrating solar power receivers are better at absorbing sunlight

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.

Grid+ Platform: Leveraging Blockchain Technology for Clean Energy

Grid+ is combining blockchain technology and artificial intelligence to build a software and hardware solution that makes the electrical grid smarter, more resilient, and more economical for consumers. Astreamlined business model enables Grid+ to offer near-wholesale electricity prices instead of the 100% markup that traditional power utilities charge in most states.

Possible tariff on imported solar panels makes the industry nervous

Keith Schneider for The Los Angeles Times: The trade commission's decision will be transmitted to President Trump on Nov. 13. Whatever the outcome, the tariff case has riven the $30-billion U.S. solar sector.

Leveraging Bitcoin & Blockchain For 'Solar Power' Sun Exchange Scores $1.6M From U.S. Investors

Roger Aitken for Forbes: Members of the market place can have their solar cells installed and rented to hospitals, factories, schools and rural communities in Africa and the Middle East, earning them income from solar powering the developing world.

Solar Panels Might Get More Efficient Thanks to a Butterfly

Avery Thompson for Popular Mechanics: By imitating the microscopic structure of a butterfly wing, a group of researchers designed a more efficient solar cell.

Industrializing Offshore Wind Energy Development

University of Delaware: UD-led research team determines that constructing offshore wind turbines in port is the most cost effective method

Is It Possible for the World to Run on 100% Renewable Energy?

Not only is transitioning to 100% renewable energy possible, but the benefits far outweigh the costs and obstacles.

Solar farm in a box - 500 homes worth of solar power in a standardized kit

John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: Their goal in designing the Solar Block is to lower the cost and speed the deployment of utility-scale solar power. The units can be daisy chained into larger plants.

What did You Miss When You Bought Your Solar System? How to Assure You Save For Your Systems Life Time

Though there is a perception that maintenance costs money and a solar system should run on its own, preventative maintenance can increase your ROI by 25% and reduce your cost significantly.

The U.S. solar industry's new growth region: Trump country

Nichola Groom for Reuters: The 10 fastest-growing U.S. solar markets between the second quarters of 2016 and 2017 were Western, Midwestern or Southern states that voted for Trump.

Offshore wind farms have powerful advantage over land-based turbines, study finds

Eli Kintisch for Science: Floating wind turbines at sea could create up to three times as much electricity as turbines on land, increasing the energy potential for a technology that has yet to be proven at scale.

Interview with Richard Reno of GE Power Conversion's Renewables Segment

Our strategy is to look at complete system and plant design - so everything to do with electrification, grid integration and connection, exceptionally also extends to the panels themselves - to provide one integrated package to customers to optimize overall plant design for cost-efficiency, and financial services as the project enabler.

Interview with Doug Campbell, CEO of Solid Power

Solid Power is developing the next-generation of all solid-state rechargeable batteries. Our materials platform is centered around our solid electrolyte, which takes the place of both the separator and traditional liquid electrolyte in our cells.
