Low Cost Perovskite Photovoltaics that Match Silicon Cells' Output

Low Cost Perovskite Photovoltaics that Match Silicon Cells' Output

Perovskites are a leading candidate for eventually replacing silicon as the material of choice for solar panels. They offer the potential for low-cost, low-temperature manufacturing of ultrathin, lightweight flexible cells, but so far their efficiency at converting sunlight to electricity has lagged behind that of silicon and some other alternatives.

Data Processing and Networks Killing the Planet?

The laws of thermodynamics warn us that making electricity will always be less than 100% efficient. However rapidly we transition to renewables, it is therefore a good thing that both electronic and electrical engineering hardware have been trending to the use of much less electricity.
