Spray-on Solar Cells - How do they Work?

Spray-on solar cells use nanotechnology. These cells are made using quantum dots, which is a nanocrystal composed of a semiconductor material that is small enough to take advantage of the laws of quantum mechanics.

Deutsche Bank MD expects Cost of Solar to Drop Another 20-30% as 2020 Approaches

The US and China will be in the 12-15 GW range in 2015 but the incremental growth will come from some of these emerging markets. We expect Mexico to be a 2 GW market by 2017, with South Africa also above the 1 GW mark by 2017. These two markets were stagnant in 2013-14, so the growth will be quite significant in the coming years.

Solar & Wind - Featured Product

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
