Oxford PV among Technology Review’s top 50 most innovative companies of 2017

Perovskite solar technology leader named in top three in the Newcomer of the Year category, of the German edition of MIT Technology Review’s prestigious list

Scientists look into insect eyes for new solar cell design

Mimicking a compound eye of a fly, Stanford University scientists have packed tiny perovskite cells into a hexagon-shaped epoxy resin scaffold, improving the material’s durability when exposed to moisture, heat and mechanical stress in a breakthrough that may open the door to the awaited improvement in perovskite’s operational stability.

Swiss researchers team with NREL to break 35% cell efficiency

A collaborative project between the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) has tested a range of multi junction cells in tandem configuration, and achieved efficiencies of up to 35.9%.


Australia’s Greatcell signs MOU with JinkoSolar

Under a non-exclusive Memorandum of Understanding with JinkoSolar, Greatcell noted it would make available developmental perovskite cells for further evaluation.


US Department of Energy backs solar with further $46.2m for SunShot Initiative

The funding is for 48 identified solar projects spanning two SunShot programs designed to advance solar power technologies in the U.S.

Solar arrives at world’s largest industrial show

Hannover Messe: The time for solar and storage is now. The message from pv magazine’s Solar Premium partners at the 2017 Hannover Messe was simple but compelling, and it made for an irresistible proposition for attendees at the landmark event.

Hold firm, Europe

European solar: The landscape for European PV has never looked so barren. An industry largely created and financed – at least in the early stages – by EU member states is increasingly dominated by China, but smarter policies can bring back the dynamism and innovation that first helped European solar soar, believes Gäetan Masson, Director of the Becquerel Institute.

Ames Laboratory researchers can ‘see’ light hitting a solar cell

As part of its research into organometal halide perovskites, the U.S Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory has developed a spectroscopic technique which it says can ‘capture the moment, less than one trillionth of a second, where a particle of light hits a solar cell and becomes energy.’

ANU researchers develop light management technique inspired by butterfly wings

Researchers at Australia National University have developed a nanostructure technique to finely control the direction of light. The technique, says ANU, could be applied to tandem perovskite/silicon solar cells.


Atomic scale design could pave the way to more persistent solar cells, study says

Researchers from ICL claim to have discovered the cause for the rapid decrease in performance of perovskites. Adding iodide ions may help improve the stability of solar cells.
