Also on the rise: Sandia develops a grid-scale battery storage technology, NREL researchers write code to make legacy inverters smarter, and take a moment to admire these solar panels.
The battery operates at 230 degrees Fahrenheit, opening what researchers said could be “a whole cascading cost savings” including everything from less expensive materials to less insulation.
The system can be expanded to a capacity of up to 25 kW, and its creator is using a Kickstarter platform to raise R&D money.
The achievement was confirmed by the Institute for Solar Energy Research and is claimed as a world record for a p-type TOPCon cells.
Researchers developed a silicon heterojunction solar cell based on p-type gallium-doped wafers that they said has an efficiency of 22.6% and improved stability.
Sax Power has developed a new residential battery which it describes as a game-changer in the battery technology.
Preliminary results for a handful of companies suggest that commodity price rises are having an impact on earnings.
Also on the rise: 174 Power wins a regulatory OK for its 100MW/400MWh NYC energy storage project, the State Department issues a supply chain warning, and DOE offers millions for cell advancements.
