Aussie researchers may have just increased solar storage by 3000%

  Aussie researchers may have just increased solar storage by 3000% Researchers at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) have developed a plant-inspired graphene electrode that could boost solar storage by up to 3000 per cent. According to a statement released by RMIT, the new electrode is designed to work with supercapacitors, which can charge and discharge power much faster than conventional batteries. In the past, supercapacitors have been combined with solar technology, but their wider use as a storage solution has been limited by their capacity.

  Tesla reveals a sleek solar panel built for your existing roof © Provided by Engadget Tesla's home energy efforts might be centered around its solar roofs, but it knows that not everyone can (or wants to) rip up their roof just to bring renewable energy to their home. To that end, the company is offering a first glimpse at Panasonic-made solar panels that would go on top of your existing roof. Unlike many aftermarket options, this would be relatively slick and unintrusive -- the panels have "integrated front skirts and no visible mounting hardware." While it'll be patently obvious that you have solar energy on your roof, it shouldn't be the eyesore you sometimes get with conventional designs.

World’s biggest solar energy facility to be built in Australia

  World’s biggest solar energy facility to be built in Australia With the amount of sunlight available in Australia, it really seems like the perfect spot for solar energy. And now it’s about to unveil the biggest solar energy farm in the world.It’s called the Riverland Project and it’s scheduled to start operations by the end of the year, with several million solar panels and over a million batteries.All told, the complex will cost about a billion dollars to build. But thisisn’t a government facility; Riverland is on private land near Adelaide, and was paid for by private investors through the Lyon Group, which is spearheading the project.

The company is taking requests for custom price quotes right now, but it tells Electrek that production for the 325W modules should start sometime in the summer. You'll have to be patient if you're determined to escape the conventional power grid. However, this is definitely not a secondary project for Tesla. The firm says that it'll use these panels for all new residential projects (outside of tiles), so you're really looking at the future of Tesla's mainstream energy tech.
