LG Solar releases the NeON R Solar Module at SPI 2017

The higher power density of the NeON R delivers more energy and cost savings in space limited situations. In addition to a higher energy output, the N-type cells use almost no boron, significantly reducing Light Induced Degradation.

Why can't every object in your home be a solar power generator?

Sian Bradley for Wired: "Tables are this big empty space, a surface that's not being used a lot. I saw their potential to be an independent power source, wherever you want to have it,"

Digital Grid and the Environment

The biggest change impacting energy infrastructure around the world is the growth of renewable energy resources, including distributed sources such as solar photovoltaics. At the transmission level, the result of this expansion will mean that electrical grids will take on an increasingly important role in balancing power flows across broader regions, with faster and more dynamic power exchanges taking place during fast solar transition times such as sunrises and sunsets.
