      Opinion: Energy not Capable of Web-like Disruption
      Does the energy industry need more disruption-focused web entrepreneurs like Sean Parker, of Napster and Facebook fame? While the world will be better with more Parkers in general, I don't think the energy industry will be disrupted as easily by these types of folks ... Energy has fundamentally different parameters than web, and also often times needs to be built on top of the infrastructure already in place.

      Maldives Crowdsources Solar and Storage Plans

      While the Maldives has abundant sunlight during the day, the battery technology required for large-scale power generation at night is extremely expensive.“Right now, we aren’t looking at storage because it would double the cost in this current economic environment. Technology is evolving reasonably rapidly though, and in five or ten years we think that providing storage will more affordable,” Razee said.“Batteries are used at night, and as we know a lot of electricity is generated then. So we will need to address the issue of storage and how to provide energy at night within our larger goals.”

      PNM 1st to fully integrate solar storage with grid

      A small solar plant and its experimental battery storage system went live in Albuquerque on Monday in what Public Service Company of New Mexico said was the first solar storage installation in the country to be fully integrated with a utility's power grid. The storage system consists of 1,280 advanced lead acid batteries housed inside eight climate-controlled containers. It can store about 250 kilowatts, or half of the 500 kilowatts of power generated by an adjacent 2,158-panel solar array constructed as part of the project.

      Wind and hydro to flourish, solar to languish, but fossils maintain grip, says EIA
      Wind and hydropower will dominate growth in clean-power production over the next 25 years, but still face a future in the shadow of fossil according to the US Energy Information Administration. The EIA expects hydro to account for 55% of the growth and wind 27%, roughly in line with its previous predictions, but is more dismissive than many other analysts of the role of other renewable generation sources such as solar.
