Pusan National University Researchers Improve the Stability of Perovskite Solar Cells

In the presence of moisture, the perovskite tends to get corroded. Multiple approaches have been suggested to resolve this issue, including encapsulating the device and compositional engineering of the perovskite light absorbers.

Combination of Stressors Key to Testing Perovskite Solar Cells

Solar cells must endure a set of harsh conditions-often with variable combinations of changing stress factors-to judge their stability, but most researchers conduct these tests indoors with a few fixed stressing conditions.

Bifacial Perovskite Solar Cells Point to Higher Efficiency

The dual nature of a bifacial solar cell enables the capture of direct sunlight on the front and the capture of reflected sunlight on the back, allowing this type of device to outperform its monofacial counterparts.

QD Solar reports on highly efficient perovskite solar cells developed for large scale manufacturing

The 24% efficiency for spin-coated perovskites cells and the 23.2% efficiency for slot-die coated, manufacturing-ready, perovskite cells have been officially confirmed by MKS Instruments/Newport in Utah, USA.

Thin, Lightweight Layer Provides Radiation Barrier for Perovskites in Space, Protection From Elements on Earth

An ultrathin protective coating proves sufficient to protect a perovskite solar cell from the harmful effects of space and harden it against environmental factors on Earth.

Solvent study solves solar cell durability puzzle

A discovery by Rice University engineers brings efficient, stable bilayer perovskite solar cells closer to commercialization. The cells are about a micron thick, with 2D and 3D layers.

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.

Q CELLS and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin achieve record efficiency of 28.7% for 2-terminal perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell

The joint achievement from Q CELLS and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin sets a new world record for 2-terminal tandem solar cell efficiency based on perovskite top-cell technology and using a mass-production-ready silicon bottom cell based on Q.ANTUM technology.

Perovskite Solar Cells Taking the Heat

In a recently published Science paper, KAUST researchers have reported a significant milestone through the first-ever successful PV damp-heat test of PSCs.

Can Perovskite Make Solar Power More Efficient?

The vast majority of solar panel semiconductors today consist mostly of silicon, which has limited efficiency. But in the past few years, a potential alternative has emerged. Perovskite.

How Governments Are Reducing Photovoltaic Tech Costs

New tech can gather data about energy distribution and storage, for instance. This step can further reduce costs as workers can store more energy on sunny days so it doesn't go to waste.

Solar Power is taking a step forward with PV Perovskite

The technology used in the innovative cells of Oxford PV consists of covering typical silicon solar cells with a thin perovskite material film for optimal use of photons in the solar spectrum.

Colorful Perovskites: NREL Advances Thermochromic Window Technologies

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.

NREL Research Boosts Stability of Perovskites, Helps Silicon Solar Cells

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).

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide - the ultimate solution for fast and easy installation of the rail-less RockIt racking system on composition shingle roofs. Smart Slide conforms to UL 441 and TAS 100 (A)-95 for wind and wind-driven rain, providing a super-strong watertight seal that is achieved through compression, in most cases without the need for additional sealant. The waterproofing sealant is embedded deep into the granules of the shingle, thanks to the integrated flexible foam layer that provides cushioning. This ensures a secure fit that conforms to any architectural-style shingle. With UltraGrip Technology™, you can rely on a secure installation, as it absorbs the movement created by thermal expansion and contraction. The pre-installed sealing pads are compatible with all composition shingle roofs, making it the ideal choice, even in ambient temperatures as low as 5 degrees.
