A research effort by professor Mahesh Bandi, head of the Collective Interactions Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) has used turbulence theory combined with experimental wind plant data to explain the statistical nature of wind power fluctuations. Its an important work not to be overlooked. Professor Bandi’s work has […]






A promising, recently identified photocatalytic new material is inexpensive graphitic carbon nitride. The hunt is on for the storage of photogenerated electric energy and its release on demand are still among the main obstacles in artificial photosynthesis. Scientists are now exploring a modified form of graphitic carbon nitride that can produce light-generated electrons and store […]






University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) researchers have developed a simple processing technique that could cut the cost of organic photovoltaics and wearable electronics. The development by the UCSB team working with three other universities is a new technique for manufacturing single-layer organic polymer solar cells that might very well move organic photovoltaics into […]






University of New South Wales engineers in Australia have smashed the new perovskite compound’s world efficiency record. Perovskites are the hottest new material in solar cell design because flexible, cheap to produce and simple to make. Anita Ho-Baillie, a Senior Research Fellow at the Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) announced at the Asia-Pacific Solar […]






Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory┬áLaboratory scientists have found a way to engineer the atomic-scale chemical properties of a water-splitting catalyst for integration with a solar cell. The result is a big boost to the stability and efficiency of artificial photosynthesis. Led by researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), the project […]
