Iron-based solar cells on track to becoming more efficient

Lund, Sweden (SPX) Nov 15, 2019
An international study led from Lund University in Sweden shows that 30 per cent of the energy in a certain type of light-absorbing iron molecule disappears in a previously unknown manner. By closing this loophole, the researchers hope to contribute to the development of more efficient solar cells using this iron-based solar cell. The sun is an unlimited source of pure and renewable energy

Orsted to build massive solar and storage project for Texas oil sector

Copenhagen, Denmark (SPX) Nov 15, 2019
Orsted reports that following final investment decision from its Board of Directors it has commenced construction on the company’s first utility-scale solar plus battery storage project, the 460-Megawatt (MWac) Permian Energy Center. The facility is located in Andrews County, Texas, and will come online in mid-2021. Upon completion of the Permian Energy Center, Orsted will become the first

Solar Energy Continues to Shift Auto Industry

More U.S. car dealers are installing solar energy systems to power a good portion of their entire operations and save money.

NASA sending solar power generator developed at Ben-Gurion to ISS

Beer-Sheva, Israel (SPX) Nov 15, 2019
A new solar power generator prototype developed by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) and research teams in the United States, will be deployed on the first 2020 NASA flight launch to the International Space Station. According to research published in Optics Express, the compact, microconcentrator photovoltaic system could provide unprecedented watt per kilogram of power critical to

Five Reasons to Sell SunPower® Solar Solutions

Considering a career in the solar industry? Here are 5 reasons why that is an excellent idea.

New material to pave the way for lead-free solar panels

Washington (UPI) Nov 13, 2019
Scientists have developed a new material that could be used to make solar panels without lead. Over the last decade, the quest to build a better, more efficient solar panel has centered on a mineral called perovskite. Solar panels made using the calcium titanium oxide mineral capture up to 28 percent of solar energy, while the best commercial panels boast efficiencies between 15 and 18

‘Messy’ production of perovskite material increases solar cell efficiency

Cambridge UK (SPX) Nov 12, 2019
Scientists at the University of Cambridge studying perovskite materials for next generation solar cells and flexible LEDs have discovered that they can be more efficient when their chemical compositions are less ordered, vastly simplifying production processes and lowering cost. The surprising findings, published in Nature Photonics, are the result of a collaborative project, led by Dr Fel

Using mountains for long-term energy storage

Vienna, Austria (SPX) Nov 12, 2019
Batteries are rapidly becoming less expensive and might soon offer a cheap short-term solution to store energy for daily energy needs. However, the long-term storage capabilities of batteries, for example, in a yearly cycle, will not be economically viable. Although pumped-hydro storage (PHS) technologies are an economically feasible choice for long-term energy storage with large capacitie

Scientists design new grid batteries for renewable energy

Berkeley CA (SPX) Nov 11, 2019
How do you store renewable energy so it’s there when you need it, even when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing? Giant batteries designed for the electrical grid – called flow batteries, which store electricity in tanks of liquid electrolyte – could be the answer, but so far utilities have yet to find a cost-effective battery that can reliably power thousands of homes throughout a li

Perovskite solar cells get an upgrade

Houston TX (SPX) Nov 06, 2019
Rice University scientists believe they’ve overcome a major hurdle keeping perovskite-based solar cells from achieving mainstream use. Through the strategic use of the element indium to replace some of the lead in perovskites, Rice materials scientist Jun Lou and his colleagues at the Brown School of Engineering say they’re better able to engineer the defects in cesium-lead-iodide solar ce
