Ultrathin Organic Solar Cell is Both Efficient and Durable

Ultrathin Organic Solar Cell is Both Efficient and Durable

Scientists have succeeded, in collaboration with international partners, in creating an ultrathin organic solar cell that is both highly efficient and durable. Using a simple post-annealing process, they created a flexible organic cell that degrades by less than 5 percent over 3,000 hours in atmospheric conditions and that simultaneously has an energy conversion ratio--a key indicator of solar cell performance--of 13 percent.

UK's First Electric Forecourt Under Construction, Opening Summer 2020

UK's First Electric Forecourt Under Construction, Opening Summer 2020

The first of a nationwide network of over 100 Electric Forecourts is now under construction and will open this summer. The Electric Forecourt near Braintree, Essex, can charge 24 electric vehicles at once with superchargers that can deliver up to 350kW of charging power, enabling people to charge vehicles within 20-30 minutes initially, and much faster in the future as battery technologies mature.
