For the first time, an international team, including researchers from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), research how and why new transmission lines can also lead to grids becoming more unstable rather than more stable, as would be expected. A sustainable energy supply requires the expansion of power grids. However, new transmission lines can also […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Tandem solar cells made of perovskite and silicon enable significantly higher efficiencies than silicon solar cells alone. By the end of 2021, teams at HZB (Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energiehad) presented perovskite silicon tandem solar cells with an efficiency close to 30 percent. This value was a world record for eight months, a […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Nanyang Technological University scientists have developed a low-cost device that can harness energy from wind as gentle as a light breeze and store it as electricity. When exposed to winds with a velocity as low as two meters per second (m/s), the device can produce a voltage of three volts and generate electricity power […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Researchers from Shanghai Polytechnic University, Shanghai Engineering Research Center of Advanced Thermal Functional Materials, and Shanghai Solar Energy Research Center Co. Ltd explored how different shade conditions impact performance of single solar cells and two-cell systems connected in series and parallel. The results have been published by the American Institute of Physics Journal of […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst recently announced that they have figured out how to engineer a biofilm that harvests the energy in evaporation and converts it to electricity. This biofilm has the potential to revolutionize the world of wearable electronics, powering everything from personal medical sensors to personal electronics. The development has […]
