The “solar singularity” is the point where solar becomes so cheap in a majority of countries around the world that it is established as the default new power source. This piece is my second annual followup to my original article on the solar singularity from early 2015. Show More Summary
The electric car company's solar roof efforts are beginning to take shape.
Elon Musk broke the news in a tweet.
A key pillar in Elon Musk’s vision for Tesla and SolarCity is becoming a reality next month. Musk says Tesla will start taking orders for the company’s Solar Roofs — entire roofs made of shingles with built-in solar cells — in April. We do not know, however, how long buyers will need to wait in order to have […]
The Tesla solar roof tiles the company unveiled last year, which look like regular roof tiles and yet have roughly equivalent efficiency with traditional solar power gathering cells, will be up for order starting in April, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Show More Summary

Easily scalable processing could make for rapid panel production.
Rice University scientists have created an efficient, simple-to-manufacture oxygen-evolution catalyst that pairs well with semiconductors for solar water splitting, the conversion of solar energy to chemical energy in the form of hydrogen and oxygen.
(Rice University) Rice University leads a project to create an efficient, simple-to-manufacture oxygen-evolution catalyst that pairs well with semiconductors for advanced solar cells. The technique could lead to unique catalysts for other applications.
India is betting big on renewable energy and solar companies are taking notice. SunPower CEO Tom Werner said India is about to become the biggest market for solar energy, primarily because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's interest in growing the sector. "The market that’s going to boom is India," Werner told Business Insider. Show More Summary
(Stanford University) Stanford researchers suggest reforming US solar policies and encourage closer collaboration between the United States and China on solar energy in a new report.
MORE, PLEASE: Japanese company develops a solar cell with record-breaking 26%+ efficiency. The silicon-based cells that make up a solar panel have a theoretical efficiency limit of 29 percent, but so far that number has proven elusive. Practical efficiency rates in the low-20-percent range have been considered very good for commercial solar panels. But researchers […]
