SolPad offers portable solar power, batteries included 22.9.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
To many analysts, the future of home energy looks like this: solar panels on the roof and a battery in the basement. SunCulture Solar on Thursday unveiled a prototype product — the SolPad — that integrates solar cells, an inverter and a solid-state battery into one self-contained unit that looks much like an oversized smartphone. The portable version could even run an apartment’s lights and appliances at night, using software that can push precise amounts of electricity into a standard wall socket. [...] the company’s preliminary estimate for SolPad Home pegs the installed cost at $19,443 for a system capable of generating 5.3 kilowatts of electricity. Based on data from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a typical residential solar system of that size currently costs about $21,700 — and doesn’t include a battery. Longtime solar entrepreneur Barry Cinnamon has seen the SolPad and considers it an elegant way to combine two products — solar and energy storage — that will inevitably come together. ...

Scotland the Wave (tidal power takes over in the north) 20.9.2016 The Earth Times Online Newspaper - Health News
Wave power or tidal power? The answer probably depends on where you are. If you have the frightening power that has always inspired names like Cape Wrath, then those tides should produce the most power in Europe. On the other hand, the regular movement of waves could well be capable of inspiring a design to accumulate energy over a lengthy period, albeit with less energy production per unit.

A 'clean-energy champion?' Groups debate Rep. Mia Love's environmental stance 19.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
A wealthy conservative trying to push the Republican Party into fighting climate change has dubbed Rep. Mia Love a “clean-energy champion” and is spending at least $100,000 on digital ads supporting her re-election. The ClearPath Action Fund is a new group created by Jay Faison, a North Carolina entrepreneur, and his interest in Love is based partly on her votes during her first term and partly on what she may become if given more time in office. “Mia Love is a candidate who wants to do the righ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

On renewables, Trump caught between corn, oil 17.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Donald Trump is trying to walk a fine line between Iowa corn interests and the oil industry. The Republican presidential candidate’s struggle to appease the antagonistic industries was in the spotlight Thursday when his campaign published a fact sheet calling for the elimination of a slew of regulations, including a scandal-marred system of buying and selling biofuel blending credits that some oil refiners hate. “The EPA’s renewable identification number program penalizes refineries if they do n...

To the skeptic, it may look like a con. The renewable-energy industry won lucrative U.S. subsidies and immediately snapped into inaction. Advocates had lobbied hard for the revival or extension of wind and solar federal tax credits that came in December. With victory in hand . . . very little followed. The industry’s windfall hasn’t spurred tremendous growth. In some cases, the renewal of the credits actually prompted a sudden slowdown in growth. Without the context, it kind of looks like they w...

Dong Energy plans to build two offshore wind parks there supplying as many as one million homes. The cost of the projects is about 60 percent cheaper than average rates estimated only a year ago by Bloomberg New Energy Finance in London.
