World now far less wasteful with energy, finds IEA report

The International Energy Agency says that energy efficiency drives are beginning to have a positive impact, saving $540bn last year, but more vigorous policies required in order to meet climate goals.

UK could be home to 24 million clean energy prosumers by 2050, says report

Data by the European Renewable Energies Federation forecasts the British energy ‘prosumer’ to grow from one million in 2015 to 24 million as more and more citizens begin to make valuable energy contributions.

Danish university develops tungsten-based technique to capture broader solar wavelength

Researchers at Aalborg University are working on a new approach at capturing a broader spectrum of sunlight using new, high-temperature materials that can withstand 800 degrees Celsius and convert sunlight into electricity.

“What we focus on is reliability”

Perovskite: It’s been a buzz technology of the last couple of years, perovskites in PV applications. However, much of the research community has struggled to meet the required material stability requirements of the solar industry. Chris Case, the CTO of perovskite developer Oxford PV, believes that his company has made serious headway.

The pv magazine weekly news digest

Another seven days of solar brings a call from SolarPower Europe for the EU to end trade duties on Chinese components, the unveiling of Hanergy’s zero charge EVs, and the first shoots of Nigeria’s solar market.

Positive PV outlook from EU PVSEC

The 21st century was lauded as the “solar photovoltaic century” at this year’s EU PVSEC as excitement builds within the industry and big capacity increases are forecasted.

A PV pulse-take

IEEE PVSC: SPV Market Research’s Paula Mints was an engaged attendee at the recent IEEE PVSC conference in Portland, U.S., held at the beginning of June. Here is a snapshot of how the conference unfolded over the course of five days, and the main themes that were discussed.

Thin edge of a major wedge

Thin film production equipment: A Chinese manufacturer developing hundreds of megawatts of thin film manufacturing capacity is a big deal. This alone made the announcement from CNBM that it was placing large orders with European cadmium telluride (CdTe) and copper indium gallium selenium (CIGS) PV equipment suppliers at the 2016 SNEC trade show a significant one. But what do we know about the deal? pv magazine investigates.

SunRISE TechBridge Challenge winners announced by DSM, Fraunhofer TechBridge and Greentown Labs

Five early-stage companies are announced as winners of the SunRISE TechBridge Challenge, which was designed to identify innovations in solar materials and technologies to reduce the levelized cost of energy for photovoltaic systems.

UNSW takes out CZTS efficiency world record

Researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) have achieved a world record conversion efficiency of 7.6% for a 1cm2 copper zinc tin sulfide (CZTS) solar cell. Japan’s Solar Frontier, with IBM and Tokyo Ohka Kogyo, have previously achieved 12.6%, however on a smaller 0.42cm2 substrate.
