Damage often occurs during the production and further processing of silicon wafers. In addition to downtimes and additional cleaning steps as well as readjustments, there are also increased material and process costs.
NexWafe GmbH Lands €10 Million Funding Round, Aims to Cut Solar Production Costs by 30%, Reduce CO2 Emissions by 70%
High-efficiency monocrystalline silicon wafer manufacturer gears up for commercialization of its wafer technology, adds veteran VC to corporate board
By combining the unique properties of titanium dioxide and nickel oxide semiconductors, the researchers were able to generate an efficient, transparent solar cell.
EverVolt modules are more resistant to the effects of shade than conventional panels as the cells' connections are split in parallel, so even if one part is shaded, another parallel connected part can generate the electricity.
-SF8 is a multidrive tracker with, at least, 4 strings of up to 100 KW -The bifacial configuration of the SF8 can produce up to 8.6% more power generation than other trackers -SF8 increases the rigidity of its structure by 22% compared to the SF7 tracker
The rising demand for photovoltaics, technological innovations and decreasing costs are making the manufacture of photovoltaic products in Europe attractive. This trend is further boosted by the research and mechanical engineering expertise represented on the continent.
Scientists place another piece of the puzzle on how introducing alkali metals into crystals of thin-film flexible solar cells improves their efficiency
Designing solar panels in checkerboard lines increases their ability to absorb light by 125 per cent, a new study says.
The 2020 PV Module Reliability Scorecard highlights major advancements in PV module technology while noting concerning safety and performance failures
Silicon carbide enables solar inverters to be lighter, smaller and more efficient. Using silicon carbide power components instead of silicon for solar inverters can save 10 megawatts for each gigawatt and 500 watts/sec in operations, representing significant energy savings.
The six-junction solar cell now holds the world record for the highest solar conversion efficiency at 47.1%, which was measured under concentrated illumination. A variation of the same cell also set the efficiency record under one-sun illumination at 39.2%.
Electron beam welding has particularly outstanding properties: It can be used for joining the smallest components as well as for large parts. Vacuum solutions are indispensable for the application.
Over the next 5 to 10 years, renewable energy will assume a more prominent role as a main power source for power grids. Solar power, in particular, as the most noteworthy form of renewable energy, has a particularly bright future.
A change in chemical composition enabled scientists to boost the longevity and efficiency of a perovskite solar cell developed at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Now, researchers have developed a new way of creating solar panels that may make it easier to install than ever before - a crystal-based liquid that has allowed researchers to effectively paint on solar panels to suitable surfaces.
