How Silicon Carbide is Changing Solar Power Systems

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.

NREL Six-Junction Solar Cell Sets Two World Records for Efficiency

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 in Vacuum

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.

Huawei Predicts 10 Trends in Smart PV for 2025

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.

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).

Crystal Paint for Solar Panels Could Innovate Renewable Energy

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.

INTERSOLAR and looking ahead to 2020 - Q&A with Panasonic

Even though there are short term impacts to installation rates due to policy changes, historically solar and energy storage has only grown and will continue to grow. Energy storage in particular has a significant potential to grow this year. Booth #1616

S2A's #GreenLuxHome Will Feature the World's Only Patented Graphene Solar Panel From FreeVolt

The first electrically self-sustaining, custom luxury homes from S2A will be powered by the only graphene solar panel in existence globally, changing the game with unprecedented energy production, durability, immunity to climate, and overall service life.

Dye Sensitized Solar Cells Is the Future of Solar

The dye sensitized solar cell can produce electricity under low light conditions, including indoor lighting. Due to the structural design and different color dyes, the cell features colors and transparency.

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.

New Testing Facility Launches: Is the Future of Utility-Scale Solar Projects in Bifacial?

The new facility will serve as the test ground for analyzing and validating field data to determine optimal system output utilizing bifacial modules with tracking technology under a range of variables and conditions.

AC Solar Modules

Integrating the module and the inverter is a natural evolution. In the PC industry, silicon semiconductor components have been continuously integrated to reduce manufacturing cost, reduce complexity, and simplify the customer experience.

This weird $9 trick increases solar panel efficiency 5-17%

John Fitzgerald Weaver for electrek: Instead of perfectly spacing those 60 out - with small, defined areas between the cells - the company has allowed the solar cells borders to overlap each other while increasing the cell count to 68.

Solar panels: Nanotechnology gives green energy a green color

American Institute of Physics via Science Daily: Researchers have created green solar panels using soft imprint lithography to print an array of nanocylinders that scatter green light
