By combining the unique properties of titanium dioxide and nickel oxide semiconductors, the researchers were able to generate an efficient, transparent solar cell.
Scientists place another piece of the puzzle on how introducing alkali metals into crystals of thin-film flexible solar cells improves their efficiency
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) report a breakthrough in developing a next-generation thermochromic window that not only reduces the need for air conditioning but simultaneously generates electricity.
Designing solar panels in checkerboard lines increases their ability to absorb light by 125 per cent, a new study says.
Becoming more affordable or practical are essential steps in driving the switch to renewables. Still, more innovation needs to happen. The solar panel industry needs to see substantial changes, and thankfully, it looks like there are some on the horizon.
Hypothetically, all vibration energy can be transformed into electrical energy; but there are certain types of vibrations that are preferred when the intent is to power a sensor or monitoring system. These vibrations need to have a steady vibration and a controlling frequency.
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 Evolution of Solar Technology - How Photovoltaic Technology Has Developed and Why Nanotechnology May Influence the Future
Here, Dr Franky So, chief technology officer of nanotechnology research company Nextgen Nano, explains the historical developments of photovoltaic technology and looks to the innovations shaping the years ahead.
Battery manufacturers have improved deep cycle battery performance through the use of additives, but not all of them result in the same benefit to customers.
Charging stations can be an eyesore in inner cities, and the bulky cables and plugs can also be an inconvenience in people's garages. Contactless inductive charging with coils embedded in the garage floor or the road surface has none of these visual or mechanical annoyances.
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%.
One of the main characteristics of this technology is the decoupled energy and power capacity. In fact, while the energy is stored in the electroactive species present in the electrolyte.
The sharing economy has become an unstoppable force--and the collaborative, peer-to-peer economy has grown from a curious fad into the trend-to-beat-all-trends over the past decade.
Small-scale wind energy is still in the beginning phases in Germany. Yet interest in this technology is gaining traction in light of rising electricity prices and the sociopolitical direction we are heading in to invest more in renewable energies in the future.
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.
