Interview with Sarah Kurtz principal scientist at NREL, discussing the issue of key to high efficiency cells for concentrated photovoltaics in relation to a talk she will give at the upcoming Concentrated Photovoltaics summit in San Diego this February.
Never mind going green to save the planet, two in five Brits, 41%, admit to telling their friends they are being environmentally friendly, but secretly they are doing so to save money, according to new research from Legal & General.
Solar Leader confirms commitment to Australia, asks Australian Government for commitment to solar
According to Skywindpower.com, the energy in the high altitude winds is more than enough to meet the world's energy needs, it is non global warming, and the means of capturing this energy are available through a little further development of technologies that do not require any fundamental scientific breakthroughs. Truly high energy winds are at altitudes miles above us, not just at a few hundred feet where they can be tapped by rotors on towers. The total swept area for a Flying Electric Generator of the same megawatt rating as a ground based wind turbine is typically about a quarter as much. Yet the Flying Electric Generator would produce far more megawatt hours of electricity per year due to the much higher high altitude wind speeds and constancy. Read More.

ANZ and leading renewable energy company Jackgreen Ltd [ASX: JGL]) have joined forces to create the ANZ First Easy Being Green Visa card, which will offer consumers a six month interest-free period for the cost of installing an Easy Being Green environmentally friendly solar hot water system.
Rogue Engineering announced they will be expanding the Rhino Line of Charge Controllers with two more models: The Rhino-10 and The Rhino-20.
An inch-long array of some of the tiniest solar cells ever built has been successfully tested as a power source for microscopic machines, a new study reports. Instead of using silicon, Xiaomei Jiang and her colleagues from the University of South Florida turned to a polymer (a long organic molecule made of repeating structural units). The polymer they selected has the same electrical properties as silicon wafers, but can be dissolved and printed onto flexible material. Jiang and her colleagues made 20 tiny cells - each the size of a lower case "o" in standard 12-point print - and joined them together in an array to power a microscopic chemical detector.

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
