Dear Blue Blue,

Even though we’re in May, I’m still getting quite a few releases on trends for 2017! Distilling them, four topics seem to stand out: the first two you are probably well aware of. Mini-grids for the sheer number of projects now being financed as governments look for practical ways to achieve economies of scale in electrifying remote rural areas. Storage as Tesla continues to drive innovation. The other two have so far been under the radar, but Block Chain was a major topic at SE4ALL recently with an increasing number of fans. Finally Perovskite, as you can see from the Science review, has progressed in an incredibly short space of time from truly mad science to being a serious rival to silicone. 

Taking of innovation we are also launching our latest competition this week - the third annual Smart Villages Energy Innovation Challenge. http://darenterprisers.stri.kingly.com/
