CalCharge initiative may give battery makers energy synergy 18.4.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
The Bay Area teems with startups focused on creating advanced batteries that can store enough energy to run phones, cars - even buildings. [...] a unique collaboration between private companies and the federal government could make California the center of this fast-evolving industry. CalCharge hopes to give these startups a direct connection to the expertise of researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, both part of the U.S. Department of Energy. The technology could help integrate more renewable power onto the power grid or capture waste heat from industrial processes, such as making aluminum. Officials believe California, and the Bay Area in particular, could soon become a major market for storage technologies, the way it has for renewable power and electric cars. Last year, state officials ordered California's utility companies to buy 1.3 gigawatts of large-scale energy storage by the end of 2020. Finding partnersFarasis Energy in Hayward, ...

Earth-size, ‘Goldilocks-zone’ planet found in distant solar system 18.4.2014 Washington Post
The hunt for Earth’s alien twin reached a new milestone with the discovery of a faraway exoplanet that’s not much bigger than our own globe and is theoretically capable of retaining liquid water. The planet is the first Earth-size sphere found outside our solar system that also resides in the “Goldilocks zone” — the habitable range where the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold. In other words, the right conditions for life to potentially ...

Turns Out, You Can Make Solar Panels Work in Cloudy Cities 16.4.2014 Mother Jones
This story originally appeared in The Atlantic Cities and is republished here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Solar panels have always made sense in cities that get a lot of sun, at least intuitively. But in recent years, scientists have figured out ways to make them more useful for perpetually gloomy cities like London and Seattle. The solution comes down to organic photovoltaics . Unlike traditional solar panels, made of silicon, OPV cells are made of organic semiconductors, which can be 3D-printed or coated over large areas, as seen in the video below. The promise of OPV's isn't necessarily that they'd produce more power than traditional panels, but that they're more efficient at generating power from limited lighting. Silicon cells require direct sunlight (rays must shine at at least 90 degrees) before they start outputting energy. But newer technologies like OPV generate energy regardless of the angle of the rays. On a cloudy day, though there is less sunlight overall, rays still hit the ...

Letter: Feds are bullying ranchers 15.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
With regards to forcing Bundy’s cattle off of supposed “federal land.” The alternatives for the BLM are a giant solar power plant for a foreign conglomerate, or perhaps fracking leases for some oil companies. More money is to be made off from gas, oil or solar leases than they can get from the few ranchers they can bully. Our illustrious leadership in Washington will do nothing, since they will get far more donations from these corporations than from a few ranchers. The BLM is even breaking ...
