Latest Low-cost photovoltaic cell Stories
Some solar devices, like calculators, only need a small panel of solar cells to function. But supplying enough power to meet all our daily needs would require enormous solar panels.
Researchers in Singapore have exploited advanced nanostructure technology to make a highly efficient and yet cheaper silicon solar cell.
Researchers of the Chemical Engineering department and the Kavli institute of TU Delft have demonstrated that electrons can move freely in layers of linked semiconductor nanoparticles under the influence of light.
New MIT-developed materials make it possible to produce photovoltaic cells on paper or fabric, nearly as simply as printing a document.
A scientific advance in renewable energy which promises a revolution in the ease and cost of using solar cells, has been announced today, Monday 4 July 2011.
Inkjet printers, a low-cost technology that in recent decades has revolutionized home and small office printing, may soon offer similar benefits for the future of solar energy.
DuPontâ„¢ KaptonÂ® colorless polyimide film, a new material currently in development for use as a flexible superstrate for cadmium telluride (CdTe) thin film photovoltaic (PV) modules, has enabled a new world record for energy conversion efficiency.
