Taiwan’s Solartech Energy will expand its multicrystalline PERC production to 240 MW. The PERC expansion will add one PERC line per month July through September of this year, finishing up with four lines by the end of that month.
UK-based perovskite technology developer Oxford PV has closed an £8 million (US$12.15 million) first-tranche B equity round to continue to develop its solar perovskite technology. The round doubles the amount of equity...
This latest generation of the company's kerfless wafer production machinery, which avoids feedstock waste by forming wafers directly from molten silicon, is designed to make more than 5 MW per year.
The Dresden-based organic PV provider is partnering with vTrium Energy on a pilot program that will contribute to the creation of a base for Singapore's future energy mix while also delivering comprehensive data on the...
Researchers replaced intermediate films consisting of cadmium sulfide and zinc oxide with zinc oxysulfide and zinc magnesium oxide. As a buffer layer, zinc oxide-sulfide is more transparent to light in the blue wavelength range,...
Hanwha Solar has again submitted a polycrystalline module from the HSL 60 Poly series for testing by PV + Test. Achieving improvements, particularly in performance, the module was rated Good (+).
Financed by the European Commission, the Performance Plus project was launched with the goal of making PV systems more reliable and cost-effective and improving their overall performance.
Device has been developed for PV projects that are planned in 1 MW generation blocks and will form part of SMA's Medium Voltage Power Station.
The new record for cadmium-telluride cell conversion efficiency certified at the Newport Corporation's Technology and Applications Center lab boosts First Solar's research roadmap.
Higher efficiencies and levelized costs of electricity at levels similar to ordinary PV reported as CPV sector set to grow in 2015.
Announcements arrives amid international cooperation on off-grid technology
Trina Solar's State Key Laboratory Testing Center has received the TÜV Rheinland Power Measurement Uncertainty Assessment Service Certificate. Trina is the first solar company to receive the recognition.
Gathering of leading solar researchers and industry representatives at the Sophia research infrastructure symposium stokes passionate debate about future of European PV.
Researchers at California’s Stanford University have developed what they claim to be a new technique for the production of perovskite tandem cells, in combination with either a c-Si or CIGS semiconductor layer. In a key...
The future of PV will lie in incremental changes to drive up conversion efficiencies, according to Arno Stassen, the head of business opportunity development at Heraeus. And in good news, continues the technologist from the metal...
Finnish researchers have concluded that a 100% renewable energy system is feasible in China, Korea and Japan. They conclude that within 10 years solar and wind will be the cheapest sources of electricity in Northeast Asia.
