New Additives to Perovskite Tandem Solar Cells Boost Efficiency, Stability

Scientists at NREL have demonstrated a tin-lead perovskite cell that overcomes problems with stability and improves efficiency. The new cell, a tandem design with two layers of perovskites, measured a 25.5% efficiency.

Monetize That Runway!

Public airports across the U.S. face a similar challenge: a fixed revenue model with limited opportunity for growth. Fortunately, many have an untapped resource that they can turn into a source of predictable, long-term income - the open space around their runways.

Is the Future of Residential Solar Shingle Roofing?

Solar shingles look nearly identical to traditional asphalt shingles. They have rectangular shapes that lay across a roofing structure, covering it with the same cornered edges that people can recognize from the street.

How Keeping It Simple Can Lower O&M Costs

To mitigate the increasing cost of running a utility-scale solar project, many owners and operators have switched their focus from CapEx to operations and maintenance (O&M).

Sustainable roads of the future--Canada is home to world's first sound absorptive solar highway noise barrier

Mitrex is the world's largest designer and manufacturer of integrated solar products that produce sustainable and renewable electricity to transform any exterior surface into an energy-generating power plant.

Experts Forecast the Wind Plant of the Future To Be Taller and More Economical

In the most-likely scenario, the experts predicted that hub height for newly installed onshore wind turbines will reach 130 meters in 2035, rather than the 115-meter forecast offered in a 2015 survey.

Solar Training Courses for 2022

SEI is scaling the organization on several fronts to give people more access to hands on, more classes online, and more services for employers to help bridge the gap between training and employment.

President Biden's Action Saves Solar Jobs, Invests in American Solar Manufacturing

Following is a statement by Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association:

Major infrared breakthrough could lead to solar power at night

Researchers within the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering at UNSW Sydney have successfully tested a device capable of converting infrared heat into electrical power.

Agrivoltaics: The New Frontier

The pairing of photovoltaics and agriculture is something that must be further explored, including more supportive legislation and regulations allowing for this dual use of land.

Rooftop Solar's Unspoken Truth: Fires and Safety Risks are Uncomfortably Common

Due to inconsistent installation practices, intense manufacturer competition, and sometimes conflicting motives between Operations and Maintenance (O&M) providers and end-owners, the risk of fires looming on rooftop installations is uncomfortably common.

NREL Creates Highest Efficiency 1-Sun Solar Cell

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) created a solar cell with a record 39.5% efficiency under 1-sun global illumination. This is the highest efficiency solar cell of any type, measured using standard 1-sun conditions.

Making Solar an Even Safer Investment

As more businesses, utilities, and state bodies look to solar energy to help them meet their carbon reduction goals and cut energy costs, safety is coming under ever more scrutiny.

A Tiny Plexiglass House Featuring RT-MINI Closes Deals on the Spot

"I wanted my customers to see the product up close for themselves, not just view an iPad demo," he said. "So, I built a tiny house using plexiglass and mounted RT-MINI II on the roof."

PVEL Reveals Top Performing Manufacturers in 2022 PV Module Reliability Scorecard
