Swedish solar energy expert Midsummer surpasses Chinese solar module efficiency requirements

On June 1st, 2015, China's National Energy Bureau changed the minimum requirement for CIGS thin film solar modules to 13 per cent. It was raised from the previous level of 11 per cent.

PVinsights:The Clam before the Storm

Polysilicon price continues to grow in this week amid the rising price out of China. Although the polysilicon price in China surged more than 30 percent gain in the past three months, the price in China this week stands still, resulted from the strong wait-and-see attitude among buyers and sellers as trading frenzy in China unwound and swelling productions revives the concerns on oversupply. On the other hand, while non-American polysilicon suppliers raises their shipments to China to take advantage of higher spot prices, the diminished supply outside of China leads the price to advance with noticeable rate this week. As the result, despite the overall polysilicon price remains on the ascension this week, the weakened sentiments and the halted rally in China signal the weighed concern of an increase in global supply with REC silicon planning to resume production.

Solar cells of the future could be based on iron molecules

Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have successfully explained how iron-based dyes work on a molecular level in solar cells. The new findings will accelerate the development of inexpensive and environmentally friendly solar cells. The goal is to be able to use iron-based dyes in solar cells in the future.

Gone with the wind: Surprising potential to improve reliability in wind power

Science Daily:  Despite the rigors of scientific inquiry and the methodical approaches of the world's most talented researchers, sometimes science has a surprise in store.

Such was the case when a group of researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Akron discovered that a particular form of carbon coating not necessarily designed for wind turbines may indeed prove a boon to the wind industry -- a serendipitous finding that was recently highlighted in the journal Tribology International.

Due to the strenuous environment inherent in wind turbine drivetrains, key components such as actuators, bearings and gears are prone to failure, meaning turbines require regular maintenance that helps drive up the price of wind energy. Prolonging the life of these components could greatly reduce the cost of wind power, the fastest growing source of energy in the world, thereby making it an even more attractive energy source.  Cont'd...
