Are Solar-Powered Cars the Future?

The idea of the solar car is relatively new on the market and holds very real promise. If successful, the solar car will offer the ability to drive anywhere without burning any environmentally damaging fuels.

KeraCel, a World Leader in Solid-state Lithium Ion Batteries, Announced a Breakthrough in its Multi-material Ceramic Battery Using its Proprietary 3D Printing Technology

KeraCel is developing its ceramic solid-state batteries using proprietary additive manufacturing 3D printing technology resulting in unique monolithic structure. The unique structure allows for greatly increasing battery energy density, and producing safer and longer lasting

The Most Common Solar Circuitry Schemes

Apart from the solar panel itself, virtually any circuit consists of a solar regulator, inverter and, most commonly, a battery. Let's briefly go through their functions.

What is Betavoltaic Power?

The term betavoltaic is interchangeable with atomic battery, nuclear battery, tritium battery and radioisotope generator. They are used to designate a device, which expends energy from the decay of a radioactive isotope to produce electricity.

Top Article for 2018 - What are Hot Solar Cells?

Thermophotovoltaics (TPV) is a method of converting heat to electricity using infrared light as an intermediary. Combustion heats an emitter to incandescence and the resulting thermal radiation is converted to electricity by a photovoltaic cell.

A Battery for Hire: AC Vs. DC Coupling for Solar + Energy Storage Projects

Although the phrase "solar + storage" is thrown around in energy circles frequently, little attention is usually given to what kind of solar + storage people are actually referring. Generally speaking, solar + storage can be configured in three possible ways

"Sun in a box" would store renewable energy for the grid

Design for system that provides solar- or wind-generated power on demand should be cheaper than other leading options.

NREL Identifies Where New Solar Technologies Can Be Flexible

Rigid silicon solar panels dominate the utility and residential markets, but opportunity exists for thin-film photovoltaic and emerging technologies notable for being lightweight and flexible

Stanford researchers develop a rooftop device that can make solar power and cool buildings

Tom Abate for Stanford News: A new rooftop device under development will be able to produce electricity from sunlight while also beaming heat directly into space to cool buildings.

NREL Inks a Future for Perovskites

Moore, a staff scientist at NREL, is researching fast-drying solvents for the development of perovskite ink-a shortcut to the eventual commercialization of perovskite technologies.

Printed Solar Cells - Electric partnership powers energy innovation

Created by University of Newcastle Physicist, Professor Paul Dastoor, organic printed solar cells are electronic inks printed onto sub-millimetre thin plastic sheets using conventional printers.

Improved Way to Make III-V Solar Cells Could Hold Key to Lower Costs

Scientists at the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) work to refine the technique called hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE), which holds the potential to produce cheaper, more efficient solar cells capable of producing more electricity.
