18.6% Efficiency Near Infrared Transparent Perovskite Solar Cell

18.6% Efficiency Near Infrared Transparent Perovskite Solar Cell

Researchers have realized a 18.6% efficient highly near infrared transparent perovskite solar cell. When combined in a four terminal tandem configuration with an efficient Panasonic crystalline silicon (c-Si) cell or with a Miasolé flexible CIGS cell, delivers new record power conversion efficiencies of 28.7% and 27.0%, respectively.

World's Largest Liquid-Air Energy-Storage Project

World's Largest Liquid-Air Energy-Storage Project

The liquid air energy storage plant uses cryogenically-liquefied air as a medium for storing energy. It is especially suitable for special applications that require large amounts of energy over a discharge time of several hours, and enables fluctuating, renewable sources to bear base-loads.

New Perovskite Fabrication Method for Large-Scale Production

New Perovskite Fabrication Method for Large-Scale Production

A new, simpler solution process for fabricating stable perovskite solar cells overcomes the key bottleneck to large-scale production and commercialization of this promising renewable-energy technology, which has remained tantalizingly out of reach for more than a decade.

Transparent Nanolayers for More Solar Power

Transparent Nanolayers for More Solar Power

Silicon solar cells have been steadily improved over the past decades and have already reached a very high level of development. However, the disturbing effect of recombination still occurs after the absorption of sunlight and the photovoltaic generation of electrical charge carriers. In this process, negative and positive charge carriers that have already been generated combine and cancel each other out before they could be used for the flow of solar electricity. This effect can be countered by special materials that have a special property - passivation.
