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 […]

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 […]

Both MIT and CalTech have press releases out explaining research that could increase wind turbine output by more than 1% up to 3%. The new technology is based on an algorithm that forces individual turbines to coordinate with the others thus boosting the total output. The new approach models the wind flow of the entire […]
