Energy storage is on course to see a boom similar to that in the solar market; Australia aims to tap this potential to facilitate the further roll out of renewables. A new study has identified key investment areas, and barriers,...
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.
The micro and nanoelectronics research center says the new developments, resulting in additional improvement in conversion efficiency, further confirm the potential of n-type PERT cells for next-generation highly efficient...
Dutch research spinoff SoLayTec has announced that Hanwha Q Cells has begun evaluating its atomic layer deposition (ALD) technology. The InPassion ALD can be deployed for PERC upgrades and n-type cell production.
Renewable energy and sustainability advisory DNV GL has signed a four-year deal to supply performance testing for U.S. government agency ARPA-E. The testing will validate the performance, reliability and safety of grid-tied...
