Work Starts on Second UK Project Using Tesla Megapack Battery

Work Starts on Second UK Project Using Tesla Megapack Battery

The 34 MW / 68 MWh Contego project near Burgess Hill in West Sussex, United Kingdom, will be one of the largest battery energy storage developments in the UK, with a system of 28 Tesla Megapack lithium-ion batteries, using Tesla's Autobidder AI software for real-time trading and control. Due to be completed in June 2021 and operational soon after, it is part of a strategic energy storage pipeline to be launched globally by FRV.

World's First 3D Printed School for Madagascar

World's First 3D Printed School for Madagascar

A new project in Madagascar is using 3D printing to create new schools. Non-profit organisation Thinking Huts has partnered with architectural design agency Studio Mortazavi to create the world's first 3D-printed school on the campus of a university in Fianarantsoa, Madagascar. It is aiming to tackle the shortage of educational infrastructure which in many countries contributes to fewer children getting a good education.

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.
