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. ...

America's first wave-produced power goes online 20.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii • Off the coast of Hawaii, a tall buoy bobs and sways in the water, using the rise and fall of the waves to generate electricity. The current travels through an undersea cable for a mile to a military base, where it feeds into Oahu’s power grid — the first wave-produced electricity to go online in the U.S. By some estimates, the ocean’s endless motion packs enough power to meet a quarter of America’s energy needs and dramatically reduce the nation’s reliance on oil, gas and c...

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>

Why a Donald Trump Victory Could Make Climate Catastrophe Inevitable 17.9.2016 Mother Jones
This story first appeared at TomDispatch.com . In a year of record-setting heat on a blistered globe, with fast-warming oceans, fast-melting ice caps, and fast-rising sea levels, ratification of the December 2015 Paris climate summit agreement—already endorsed by most nations—should be a complete no-brainer. That it isn't tells you a great deal about our world. Global geopolitics and the possible rightward lurch of many countries (including a potential deal-breaking election in the United States that could put a climate denier in the White House) spell bad news for the fate of the Earth. It's worth exploring how this might come to be. The delegates to that 2015 climate summit were in general accord about the science of climate change and the need to cap global warming at 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius (or 2.6 to 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit) before a planetary catastrophe ensues. They disagreed, however, about much else. Some key countries were in outright conflict with other states (Russia with Ukraine, for ...

Clean energy won big. So where's the party? 17.9.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
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...
