Solar Cell "Wonder Material"-Perovskite-Falls Short of Expectations

Hugh Cowley for Scientific American:  Perovskites have arguably transformed solar energy more in the last few years than other technologies have in decades. But British researchers have called into question optimistic predictions of undiscovered perovskites.

Hybrid perovskites are a mix of organic and inorganic ions with the same crystal structure as calcium titanium oxide (CaTiO3). Halide perovskites are a subset of these structures containing halide ions such as fluoride or chloride. Iodide perovskites such as methylammonium lead iodide (CH3NH3PbI3) can convert sunlight to electricity.

Researchers use a decades-old geometric 'tolerance factor' to propose new combinations of ions that will form stable perovskites. Now, Robert Palgrave and his team at University College London, UK, have reassessed the validity of the tolerance factor in predicting new hybrid perovskite structures.  Cont'd...

Solar power is contagious. These maps show how it spreads.

Brad Plumer for VOX:  Rooftop solar is expanding rapidly in the United States — by some estimates, a new system goes up every four minutes. There are plenty of reasons for that, from falling prices to generous federal subsidies to innovative leasing schemes.

But there's another, little-discussed factor here: Residential solar power is contagious. Yep, contagious. Studies have found that if you install solar photovoltaic panels on your roof, that increases the odds that your neighbors will install their own panels.

SolarCity, the largest solar installer in the United States, just published some fascinating data on this "contagion" effect. The company has installed 230,000 rooftop systems nationwide (often by allowing customers to lease panels rather than buy them upfront). It says fully one-third of customers were referred by a friend or neighbor.

SolarCity has also made some neat animations showing the "contagion" effect in action.  View here:

China's Wind Power Installed Capacity Will Escalate to 495 GW by 2030, says GlobalData

• China's installed wind power capacity will more than treble from around 149 Gigawatts (GW) in 2015 to over 495 GW by 2030, at a compound annual growth rate of 9% • Supportive government policies that include an attractive concessional program and the availability of low-cost financing from government banks are the main reasons for market success, says analyst

PVinsights: Solar panel prices slump as global price competition intensifies

Solar panel prices extend losses this week, as Chinese module makers leverage price competition intensively over the globe, especially in the US. Amid waning demand in China, some Chinese module maker is rush to increase the shipment volume in rest of the world, particularly in the US, in order to be the dominant module manufacturer. Since the demand in the US is widely expected to be promising in the coming five years, Chinese module makers has been aiming the US as one of the major target market to penetrate with their overseas capacities. Hence, solar panel price in the US has encountered great pressures, as Chinese module makers fuel strategic pricing intensively in the region. Meanwhile, in China, SEA and India, the regional prices are under pressured as Chinese module makers also intend to leverage price competition to capture more market shares.
