Three news stories about energy:

1. Neodymium ions when added to perovskite may revolutionize solar cells based on research done at UCLA. The material is more energy efficient, passes durability tests, and can handle the heat.

2. Pacific Gas & Electric partners with Energy Vault, a swiss provider of long-term energy storage solutions to implement a hydrogen-fuel cell storage battery to power Calistoga, California in the event of a wildfire necessitating the turning off of the local grid.

3. Bill Gates in his latest GatesNotes talks about the necessity to bring the U.S. power grid into the 21st century because the places where wind and solar renewable power get produced are far away from where the energy gets consumed necessitating the building up of a new infrastructure of power lines.
