Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science demonstrated a new pathway to creating durable, efficient perovskite photovoltaics at industrial scale. The process uses the first effective use of lead acetate as a precursor in making formamidinium-caesium perovskite solar cells. The team at Exciton Science, based at Monash University, were able to create perovskite […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The Caltech Space Solar Power Project (SSPP) prototype launched into orbit, dubbed the Space Solar Power Demonstrator (SSPD), will test several key components of an ambitious plan to harvest solar power in space and beam the energy back to Earth. Space solar power provides a way to tap into the practically unlimited supply of […]

ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science researchers have demonstrated a new way to create stable perovskite solar cells, with fewer defects and the potential to finally rival silicon solar cell’s durability. The team, led by Professor Henry Snaith (Oxford University) and Professor Udo Bach (Monash University), has its results published in the journal Nature […]

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) researchers reported a new world record for tandem solar cells consisting of a silicon bottom cell and a perovskite top cell. The new tandem solar cell converts 32.5 percent of the incident solar radiation into electrical energy. The certifying institute European Solar Test Installation (ESTI) in Italy measured […]

Scientists at Technion in Israel figured out how to harvest the electrons plants produce and extract the current. By collecting electrons naturally transported within plant cells, the scientists can generate electricity as part of a ‘green,’ biological solar cell. Now the research team has used a succulent plant to create a living ‘bio-solar cell’ that […]
