The company also announced its next-generation NGT solar cells have entered the certification process, with planned production to begin in the third quarter of next year.
Fossilized Diatoms, an algae that has the ability to manipulate light, are being used to solve a design problem that has long plagued the proliferation of organic solar cells. The diatoms can be found in all waters and in the bark of trees. They possess a skeleton made of nanostructured silica or glass.
A*Star researchers, in a bid to find an alternative to silicon-based solar cells, are investigating a new material that is more cost-effective and easier to produce that could also lead to more efficient solar cells.
Scientists of the University of Florence claim that graphene-based electron transport layers (ETL) achieve higher carrier injection with respect to most commonly used ETLs.
Since October 8 some 42 cars powered by solar energy raced their way across Australia from Darwin to Adelaide in the 30th World Solar Challenge. Delft University’s Nuon Solar grabbed its seventh win.
A team at the renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology has developed a type of battery which it says could store energy for long durations at a fraction of the cost of current storage technologies.
