The research team from Harvard has taken a leaf out of nature’s book and has added an organic electrolyte, which was inspired by vitamin B2, to redox-flow batteries in an attempt to increase its energy storage capacity, as research into this style of battery continues to build up pace.
The U.S. residential PV installer will work with the Pacific Gas and Electric Company in San Jose, California, to test the efficacy of coordinated solar smart inverters and storage for enhanced grid stability.
At the Intersolar North America trade show we have launched a new site specifically for the American solar industry, with a focus on downstream markets and, of course, policy.
The Chinese solar module producer says it has achieved 21.1% average efficiency for P-type monocrystalline PERC cells produced in industrial standard conditions.
New research has indicated a pathway for perovskites to achieve a conversion efficiency of 31%. The findings were published by researchers from Berkeley Lab this week. Nanoscale images of perovskite solar cells revealed a characteristic of perovskites that points to the potential for dramatically higher efficiencies.
It is the furthest away from the sun that solar panels have produced energy, helping NASA’s Juno spacecraft enter the orbit of the solar system’s largest planet, in a groundbreaking mission that highlights the capabilities of solar technology.
US company SunPower achieved an efficiency of 24.1% for a module using silicon cells, which is just the latest in a number of efficiency records for solar technology, showing that the modules are moving in the right direction.
Swiss pilot Bertrand Piccard landed the solar-powered plane in Seville on Thursday morning, achieving one of the most iconic stretches on the journey, and getting one step closer to completing the mission to fly around the world using nothing but solar energy.
The California utility has also set a goal of 55% renewable energy by 2031, which is more aggressive than the state’s current renewable energy mandate.
Verified by Fraunhofer ISE CalLab, the rating of 19.5% efficiency for a standard module of 1,670 x 1,000 mm2 sets a new world record for multicrystalline panels; Hanwha achieved the result using its Q.ANTUM cells with four busbars. Korean solar module producer Hanwha Q Cells has raised the bar for multicrystalline module efficiencies, confirming this […]
