Hybridizing anaerobic digestion with photovoltaic-thermal energy

Scientists in Spain have proposed to combine anaerobic digestion plants with photovoltaic-thermal panels and have found that this combination may achieve an LCOE of $0.045/kWh across several locations in Europe and North America.

The Hydrogen Stream: Chinese companies push for hydrogen transport

CNPC and Sinopec are working on transporting hydrogen via pipelines, while Matrix Renewables has expanded its green hydrogen partnership with Rolwind Renovables.


A new path opens to perovskite development

Scientists in the United States claim to have proven the existence of an atomic-scale phenomenon in a perovskite material. Using powerful, ultra-fast bursts of light, the group was able to capture images of the ‘Rashba effects’ within the material. The researchers say the phenomenon could be harnessed to create new opportunities for PV and other perovskite-based devices.


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.’

Solar, wind meet more than 10% of U.S. electric demand in March

This is the first time that U.S. wind and solar have met more than 10% of demand in a single month; however individual states led by California and Iowa have reached much higher penetrations.
