DOE announces $750 million in funding to advance clean hydrogen technologies  Funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is intended to lower clean hydrogen and fuel cell costs and provide long-term support for hydrogen hubs.

Lowering grid costs with voltage support from PV inverters at night  Researchers have proposed the use of solar inverters in utility-scale solar assets to replace expensive voltage compensators, in order to provide voltage support at night. They said reactive power from PV inverters could be significantly cheaper and suggested the introduction of incentives to convince PV plant owners.

Testing prairie and pollinator agrivoltaics at a former nuclear power site  The EPRI and SMUD project team will create a pollinator habitat under a 160 MW utility-scale solar project and measure changes in energy, soil carbon and management costs at the site.

Tigo Energy acquires predictive data analytics company FSIGHT  FSIGHT brings AI-driven analytics and prediction capabilities to Tigo, helping the company monetize smart meter data.
