Wave Energy Project in Brazil for Eco Wave Power

Wave Energy Project in Brazil for Eco Wave Power

According to a study, Brazil has an estimated wave energy potential of 91.8 GW, considering the 7,491 km of the Brazilian coast. The study points out that the conversion of just one fifth of this potential would be enough to supply around 35% of the country's electricity demand. Another study, from, calculates that only the Northeast region, where Port of Pecém is located, would have an estimated ocean energy potential of 22 GW.

Transparent Electrode Boosts Solar Cell Efficiency

Transparent Electrode Boosts Solar Cell Efficiency

Developing new ultrathin metal electrodes has allowed researchers to create semitransparent perovskite solar cells that are highly efficient and can be coupled with traditional silicon cells to greatly boost the performance of both devices, said an international team of scientists. The research represents a step toward developing completely transparent solar cells.
