Solar power poised for even greater breakthroughs

"Starting over a decade ago, the institute set up hundreds of sunlight sensors across the city state and began continuously measuring irradiance, the amount of sunlight that makes it to Earth as clouds come and go. Those measurements now constitute a massive data record that researchers, and Singapore power generators and grid operators, use to predict solar power output five minutes to seven hours ahead."

How California’s Ban on Diesel Locomotives Could Have Major National Repercussions
