University of Southern California researchers are asking what if surplus renewable energy could be stored as computation instead? Renewable energy has an intermittency problem – the sun provides no power at night, while winds can stop suddenly. Better battery storage is considered key to solving the intermittency problem by storing energy when the wind and […]

A National University of Singapore research team has set a new record in the power conversion efficiency of solar cells made using perovskite and organic materials. Their latest work demonstrated a power conversion efficiency of 23.6%, approaching that of conventional silicon solar cells. This technological breakthrough paves the way for flexible, light-weight, low cost and […]

The Carnegie Institution for Science’s work shows nuclear power would be crucial in helping the world reach a key goal of zero carbon emissions by the middle of the century. The research shows the case is especially true in countries with low wind resources. The study results have been published in Nature Energy by Lei […]

University of Cambridge researchers have developed a method to stabilize a promising material known as perovskite for cheap solar cells, without compromising its near-perfect performance. The researchers used an organic molecule as a ‘template’ to guide perovskite films into the desired phase as they form. Their results are reported in the journal Science. Perovskite materials […]

Researchers from the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nuremberg of the Forschungszentrum J├╝lich have presented a perovskite solar cell variant that stands out for its special stability. Perovskites are the great hope for further increasing the efficiency of solar modules in the future. Until now, their short service life has been considered the biggest hurdle to their practical […]
