Also on the rise: Researchers find big errors in how U.S. cities report GHG emissions, and scientists peer inside cycling Li-ion batteries to learn how the technology can be improved.
Also on the rise: EDF Renewables brings two solar projects online, one with storage; and solar investor Magic Johnson teams up with Allstate.
Tests by 7X Energy show that ground cover material showed promise, but projects will likely still need to prove the long-term durability, degradation rates, and validation of installation labor and O&M.
