New Solar Technology Could Generate Power at Night

This technology could represent a turning point in sustainable power. Scientists have been working for decades to make our way of life more environmentally friendly. One of the most critical aspects of this effort is to generate reliable alternative energy.

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.

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.

Top Article from 2019 - Traffic Powered Wind Turbines

There are more than 2.5 billion cars, which generate wind turbulence. The same wind turbine which is responsible for huge windmill rotation can be replaced by small efficient traffic wind turbines.

Blade for World's Most Powerful Offshore Wind Turbine Arrives in Boston for Testing

More powerful wind turbines are driving down cost of offshore wind power and helping to drive strong growth in US and globally, creating up to $70 billion in economic development activity in US. Blade for GE's Haliade-X 12MW offshore wind turbine to be tested at Wind Technology Testing Center to simulate full lifetime of blade.

Neutrinovoltaic Technology: Solar Cells That Don't Need Light

The neutrinovoltaic technology developed by the Neutrino Energy Group derives electrical energy from neutrinos, which are invisible particles that bombard the Earth in roughly equal numbers every moment of every day.

Benefits of Combining EV Charger and PV Inverters

We saw that by combining EV charging and solar production into one integrated solution, we could improve the way energy is produced and consumed. In addition, it made sense to embed an EV charger in an inverter as both verticals share similar customers.

Solar power system that works at night a renewable energy game-changer

An innovative thermal battery being developed by Curtin University researchers will be key to a solar power system capable of producing electricity overnight.

What is MWT?

MWT is an acronym for a PV cell technology that has been designed specifically on crystalline silicon type solar cells. It stands for Metal Wrap Through.

Ten Teams Selected in Competition Designed to Accelerate Innovation and Boost Solar Manufacturing

Student Helps Solve Scientific Puzzle That Could Improve Solar Panel Efficiency

A Loughborough University PhD student has helped shed light on a solar panel puzzle that could lead to more efficient devices being developed.

Power Optimizers Match Infrared (IR) Imaging Capabilities at Finding Module Defects

Power optimizers have the advantage of finding and quantifying failures continuously during operation.

Trend to Watch: Bifacial Modules

Bifacial solar modules are becoming more popular in the solar industry. These modules can absorb sunlight from both sides as opposed to just one. Therefore, they can convert the light that is reflected behind the panel to increase the total energy production.

Drone Imagery for Solar with Scanifly

A drone with a LiDAR sensor mounted to it can capture reality using an array of lasers to acquire coordinates which create a point cloud. The point cloud is then used to create a 3D model.

How to optimize your inverter loading ratio for solar + energy storage projects

In this final blog post of our Solar + Energy Storage series, we will discuss how to properly size the inverter loading ratio on DC-coupled solar + storage systems of a given size.
