The pilot floating PV system is being installed at De Slufter, the depot for contaminated dredging spoil on the western edge of Rotterdam’s port area.
A team of researchers from leading European and USA universities has discovered that defects in crystalline perovskite structures can be permanently healed through careful exposure to light and humidity.
The Dutch materials specialists have conducted new field tests in China that show how its new anti-soiling coating can keep solar panels cleaner for longer, resulting in additional yield on solar modules.
Overall, the Dutch government allocated 3.2 GW of renewable energy generation capacity through the latest round of the program, which is open to solar and clean energy projects larger in size than 15 kW.
The world’s largest dairy co-operative will install rooftop solar arrays on 310 facilities of its members in the Netherlands under the SDE+ program.
A team of researchers at the Netherlands’ AMOLF institute has modelled the performance of tandem perovskite/silicon solar cells under real-world climate conditions, and found that the tandem cells are little more efficient than the Si cell alone. The research shows, however, that if correctly optimized, this type of cell could perform at efficiency levels above 38%.
Researchers at the Netherlands’ AMOLF Institute have developed a method for imprinting solar panels with silicon nanopatterns that scatter green light back towards the observer.
The manufacturing facility will have an initial capacity of 100 MW and will produce both mono and polycrystalline modules.
Solar rebates will range from €5,000 to €30,000, depending on the project size.
