Greenhouses fitted with organic photovoltaic film

Greenhouses fitted with organic photovoltaic film

Within the framework of a partnership with Eiffage Energie Systèmes, Les Maraichers Nantais and Groupe Olivier, ASCA® photovoltaic films have been deployed at industrial greenhouses located near Nantes. Covering 43m² and incorporated in three different ways, the project aims to demonstrate the merits of the ASCA® organic photovoltaic film and its ability to meet the specific needs of producers.

Window film evens out indoor temperature using solar energy

Window film evens out indoor temperature using solar energy

​A window film with a specially designed molecule could be capable of taking the edge off the worst midday heat and instead distributing it evenly from morning to evening. The molecule has the unique ability to capture energy from the sun's rays and release it later as heat.

Organic solar cells will last 10 years in space

Organic solar cells will last 10 years in space

Over the past two decades, organic solar cells have garnered much attention thanks to their light weight, flexibility and unprecedented energy-to-weight ratios of 10 to 20 W/g, which make them a promising candidate for space applications, although their radiation stability is still poorly \r\n\r\n

Special nanotubes could improve solar power and imaging technology

Special nanotubes could improve solar power and imaging technology

Physicists discovered a novel kind of nanotube that generates current in the presence of light. Devices such as optical sensors and infrared imaging chips are likely applications, which could be useful in fields such as automated transport and astronomy. In future, if the effect can be magnified and the technology scaled up, it could lead to high-efficiency solar power devices.

"Self-Healing" Polymer Brings Perovskite Solar Closer to Market

"Self-Healing" Polymer Brings Perovskite Solar Closer to Market

A protective layer of epoxy resin helps prevent the leakage of pollutants from perovskite solar cells, report scientists, adding a "self-healing" polymer to the top of a perovskite solar cell can radically reduce how much lead it discharges into the environment. This gives a strong boost to prospects for commercializing the technology.
