Studies on Ideal and Actual Efficiency of Solar Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell

Among the different types of fuel cells, the PEMFC is more advantageous because of its operation condition. To satisfy the world energy thirst an integrated hydrogen production system and utilization unit must be developed.

SuperGreen Ships and Barges

Not unlike washing machines, clothes, cars, and buildings, ocean going ships eventually wear out and require replacement. The next generation of ships may well require onboard ballast water treatment capability and double hulls.

TERRESTRIAL SOLAR CELL SURPASSES 40 PERCENT EFFICIENCY

This technology will continue to dramatically reduce the cost of generating electricity from solar energy as well as the cost of materials used in high-power space satellites and terrestrial applications.

3 Dimensional Solar Cells

Solar3D, Inc. is developing a breakthrough 3-dimensional solar cell technology to maximize the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Up to 30% of incident sunlight is currently reflected off the surface of conventional solar cells, and more is lost inside the solar cell materials. Inspired by light management techniques used in fiber optic devices, Solar3D's innovative solar cell technology utilizes a 3-dimensional design to trap sunlight inside micro-photovoltaic structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons

Altenergymag Interview - Christopher Associates and the Solar Industry

Starting in a two-room office in 1977, Christopher Associates quickly expanded by focusing on technical service and an international product mix. By 1984, the company grew to become one of the leading suppliers to the printed circuit industry. Today, its customer base includes more than 1,200 companies worldwide in the Printed Circuit Fabrication and Assembly industries.

Altenergymag Interview - PV Product Distribution

Krayden, Inc. offers numerous solutions for the solar energy industry. As an authorized distributor of leading manufacturers serving the photovoltaic market, including Dow Corning, Henkel Loctite, 3M, Humiseal, FCT Assembly, Lord, and Cytec, and others the company is able to supply a full line of coatings, tapes, PV sealants, conductive Inks, PV adhesives, lead-free solder, and PV potting agents.

AltEnergyMag Interview - Solar System Safety

Brent Harris, P.Eng, is CTO of Sustainable Energy Technologies, and a co-founder of the company. He led the development and commercialization of the company's technologies, from early demonstrations to the launch of its latest Sunergy inverters. Mr. Harris has a passion for decentralized energy in general and for solar power in particular. He is an active proponent of changes to the management and regulation of our electric system that will enable greater adoption of decentralized and renewable energy technologies. Mr. Harris is a member of the board and treasurer of WADE Canada, and was a member of the board of directors of the Canadian Solar Industries Association from 2005-2008.

Balance of System Solar Solutions

SolarBOS was the first company to build a combiner box around a flexible platform where the system integrator could specify the number of fuses and enclosure rating. While this seems pretty simple in hindsight, back in 2004 this was brand new and allowed integrators a lot of flexibility on the design of the DC side of the project.

Bankable Projects Needed

May 18th & 19th saw the renewables sector come together for the annual All-Energy conference and exhibition in Aberdeen. While developers, manufacturers, enterprise agencies and financiers debated and endorsed the industry's progress in Scotland and pondered on the development of the offshore wind supply chain, the Scottish European Green Energy Centre (SEGEC) felt it prudent to remind delegates that many of the current business models won't deliver the project investment needed in the future.
