Current projections for solar PV deployment in the coming years have significantly underestimate the solar market’s potential, researchers say.
The cooking supply chain is being disrupted. Bounty from the sky, delivered free to the roof, drives the new cooking economy, and not the laboriously drilled, mined, transported, stored, and distributed fuel from the ground, say, kerosene or natural gas, let alone charcoal, firewood or biomass of any kind.
The electricity generated by a solar photovoltaic (PV) system depends on the orientation and tilt of the PV panels, and in some cases, its ability to track the sun throughout the day. Because photovoltaic panels operate more efficiently when oriented directly at the sun, some systems use solar-tracking technology to increase electricity generation by rotating the panels along one or two axes.
I had the honor last week of being able to join a business roundtable with fellow Texan and new U.S. Energy Secretary, Rick Perry.

ACWA Power International will bid to build a solar energy project in Saudi Arabia, part of the kingdom’s $50 billion push to temper domestic oil use.
The fastest growth in energy storage is going to be in the commercial and industrial sectors, which are using storage applications innovatively to better manage renewables integration and energy efficiency, according to Anil Srivasta, CEO of Swiss energy storage solution provider LeclanchÃ©
Amber Kinetics last week said that its four-hour discharge duration flywheel storage technology (FES) received a recommendation from California’s Emerging Technologies Coordinating Council for adoption into the state’s Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP).
Tesla is going to need more chargers. Lots of them. The company is preparing to launch its $35,000 Model 3 electric car later this year, with plans to make 500,000 EVs in 2018 (up from 76,000 a year ago).
Even without any specific tax-reform proposals, President Donald Trump’s pledge to revamp U.S. policies is already affecting the solar industry, and not in a good way.
