Up to 50% of the energy absorbed by a solar cell is lost as heat. Scientists are now developing a third generation of “hot carrier” solar cells that take advantage of this heat, potentially breaking the Shockley-Queisser limit of silicon-based PV.
Battery energy storage capacity may be included, and the solar projects must be sited in Oklahoma.
Also starting up: Watts Battery joins accelerator program, and an autonomous solar plane with a wingspan larger than a 747 takes flight.
Cushing is home to one of the world’s largest oil-storage tank farms, and is the price point for West Texas Intermediate crude, a global benchmark. A Tulsa company now plans to build 40 MW of solar capacity there.
Lawyers for Good Government: “To meet their renewable energy goals, municipalities need to know state energy, municipal and land use laws as well as existing local policies.”
Also in the brief: Engie and JLL develop an energy program for State Fund, Oklahoma Gas and Electric is set to develop solar projects for the Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes, PG&E pays Topaz in January.
Solar contractors added another 1.8 gigawatts of small-scale solar in the ten sunniest states last year. In Hawaii and California, solar groups described their ambitious policy goals to keep the momentum going.
