A nice briefing on the solar panels present cost,energy efficiency,cost of solar power,life time reports of various panels installed at hot and chill places, and finally on the micro inverter approach.

What happens if I install solar panels on my roof top today and after a couple years a more advanced technology comes in with panels with panels having much higher efficiency? Not sure if it is practical or not, but I think it would be better if the companies provides some kind of scheme to upgrade the panels at subsidized price if something better comes up.

Interesting idea. That could help early adoption of the technology. Note that the rest of the industry thrives on regular upgrades for consumer electronics.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
