Giant Leap Technologies and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Receive U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative Grant to Use Invisibility to Harvest Sunlight

Microfluidics will make it possible to move solar collectors into the digital age by exploiting invisibility to eliminate mechanical collectors and replace them with Digital GlassTM and non-mechanical electronic light steering.

Molten storage and thermophotovoltaics offer new solar power pathway

Georgia Institute of Technology:  New computer modeling suggests that high temperature TPV conversion -- which captures infrared radiation from very hot surfaces -- could one day rival combined-cycle turbine systems when combined with thermal storage using liquid metal at temperatures around 1,300 degrees Celsius. Advances in high-temperature components and improved system modeling, combined with the potential for conversion costs an order of magnitude lower than those of turbines, suggest that TPV could offer a pathway for efficiently storing and producing electrical power from solar thermal sources, a new study suggests.

The underlying technologies of high temperature storage and thermophotovoltaic conversion could also be used to produce grid-scale batteries able to rapidly supplement other power sources by storing heat for quick conversion to electricity. The research, supported by ARPA-E, was reported July 4 in the journal Energy and Environmental Science by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  Cont'd...

PVinsights:A warning on oversupply

Both multi- and mono-crystalline module prices plummet obviously this week. Ongoing supply growth and falling demand continues to weigh on the solar panel prices, as the fierce price competition has extended globally. In China, the price correction of multi-crystalline module has declined obviously in July, as Chinese module makers leverage strategic pricing in attempts to win the limited solar projects. Due to the entry limitation by trade barriers in EU and the US, the 2nd tier Chinese producers suffer the most with accumulated stockpiles and have to enhance fierce price competition in China, India, Japan, and the emerging countries, where no punitive tariff enforced, to dump their excessive inventories. Meanwhile, in the US, solar panel prices are also being pressured with some quotes lower than $0.50/watt as 1st tier Chinese module makers seek to increase the shipments via its overseas capacities to compensate the worse-than-anticipated sales in China.

Panasonic Activates Online Simulator for Dutch Homeowners to Visualize Benefits of Installing Solar

Panasonic, a world-renowned leader in consumer electronics across a wide array of industries, today launched a new, online solar simulation platform for Dutch homeowners.

SolarWindow Reveals First-Ever 'Invisible System' for Transporting Electricity on its Electricity-Generating Window

The company's SolarWindow™ generates electricity when its transparent organic coatings are applied in thin layers on to glass surfaces. The SolarWindow™ Intra-Connection System, announced today, moves electricity within these electricity-generating coatings to the company's previously developed 'invisible wires'. In turn, these 'invisible wires' transport electricity across the surface to the edge of the glass, where it's connected to building electrical systems.
