Energy from paint?
Researchers at RMIT (Australia) have developed a solar paint that can absorb water vapour and split it to generate hydrogen. Hydrogen is a clean source of energy, used in fuel cells and as combustion fuel. Imagine exterior walls of homes and buildings as the source for the energy they use.

The world's first hydro-solar power plant
In Portugal the world's first hydro-solar power plant has commenced operation. The Alto Rabago dam, near the country's northern border with Spain, added 840 floating solar panels earlier this year, Floating solar panels offer a means of expanding hydroelectric plant's energy capacity without embarking on costly dam reconstruction. http://m.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry/hydro-solar-plant_us_595f96dee4b02e9bdb0c0fa6

3D solar towers offer up to 20 x more energy
According to MIT researchers 3D solar towers can generate anywhere from double up to 20 times the amount of energy as flat solar panels with the same base area. These 3D designs?increase electricity output?because their vertical surfaces allow them to capture sunlight even when the sun is closest to the horizon during mornings, evenings and winter and when sunlight is partially obstructed by shadows or cloud cover. http://news.mit.edu/2012/three-dimensional-solar-energy-0327
