Interview: On Monday the Meyer Burger Group and the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) inaugurated their Swiss-Inno pilot line for heterojunction technology (HJT) in Neuchatel, Switzerland. Christophe Ballif,...
Thomas Meyer and Michael Grätzel have developed a method to use solar-generated electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen -- a critical step in the generation of solar-based fuels, whose only emission is water.
The thin film PV manufacturer has again been selected by Vanguard Space Technologies to provide modules for its space research program and unmanned aerial vehicles.
Two weeks ago today, the 29th EU PVSEC trade show and conference opened its doors in Amsterdam. The trade show has continued to shrink, but the event still provides some key insights into where PV is heading in terms of...
The Energy Balancer, awarded a patent by the Chinese Intellectual Property Office, prevents potential induced degradation of PV panels.
The Norwegian solar panel producer has launched a new multicrystalline panel that delivers 17% efficiency.
Winfried Hoffmann, a well-known figure throughout the PV world, has created a learning curve for battery storage that predicts costs will fall much faster than many experts believe.
ZSW head Michael Powalla discusses the processes that led researchers to the 21.7% CIGS efficiency record.
The 32 MWh storage system has been part-funded by the Department of Energy and is set to push the capabilities of energy storage on the grid.
The credit line is part of an initiative to support midcap companies launched by the European Commission and the European Investment Bank, which describes Manz as "a technology leader well on a par with international competitors."
The Belgian nanoelectronics research center's industrial affiliation program to advance next-gen solar cells has attracted the Japanese electronics giant.
Scientists at Stuttgart's Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research have regained the gong for CIGS efficiency, improving upon the previous record of 21%.
The agreement will help Franco Traverso's recently launched Italian cell company to reach an annual capacity of 80 MW for bifacial BiSoN solar cells with 30% more energy yield. The German R&D institute's partnership with...
New research from Germany’s Fraunhofer ISE has shown that brighter skies are leading to PV system output exceeding forecasts by 5%. Fraunhofer has adjusted its forecast models accordingly.
Australian research organization CSIRO says its solar cells, printable onto plastic, are nearing market. CSIRO says domestic solar dye cell manufacturer Dyesol is interested in commercializing the technology.
By switching from silver to copper, the cost of producing a solar cell would fall by a fraction of a cent. Yet in building a 100 MW facility, developers could save more than $100,000.
