Tuesday 19th January 2016
EPFL scientists have developed a solar-panel material that can cut down on photovoltaic costs while achieving competitive power-conversion efficiency of 20.2 percent
Monday 18th January 2016
Material could harvest sunlight by day, release heat on demand hours or days later.
Monday 14th December 2015
  A common criticism of a total transition to wind, water and solar power is that the U.S. electrical grid can't affordably store enough standby electricity to keep the system stable. Stanford researcher Mark Z. Jacobson proposes an underground solution to that problem.
Thursday 10th December 2015
Manufacturers around the world are on the lookout for light-weight and robust materials to use in portable solar cells. The thin but robust germanium hybrid layers provide a real alternative.
Friday 4th December 2015
Florida State University researchers are striving to make solar cells more effective at trapping and using light.
Friday 4th December 2015
The semi-transparent perovskite solar cell absorbs UV, blue and yellow visible light. It allows red light and infrared radiation to pass through. Based on this principle, a double-layer “tandem solar cell” can be built with an efficiency that is much higher than single-layer solar cells. (Image: Empa)

Scientists have discovered how to make the electrical wiring on top of solar cells nearly invisible to incoming light. The new design, which uses silicon nanopillars to hide the wires, could dramatically boost solar-cell efficiency.

US electrical grid can't affordably store enough standby electricity to keep the system stable, says researcher
Monday 2nd November 2015
A team of scientists have created solar cells that collect higher energy photons at 30 times the concentration of conventional solar cells, the highest luminescent concentration factor ever recorded.
Friday 2nd October 2015
Drexel University engineers have created a layered material of molybdenum and titanium by using a new process they invented to etch a MAX phase into a two-dimensional, layered MXene. Credit: Drexel University
Thursday 3rd September 2015
New technology beats current solar panel technology in life-cycle energy assessment
Friday 28th August 2015
UC Riverside researchers find a way to use the infrared region of the sun’s spectrum to make solar cells more efficient
Tuesday 25th August 2015
A scanning electron microscope image shows the rigid pillar-like bristles of the FLUENCE rake, which is used to apply light-harvesting polymers to a solar cell. The distance between the pillars is 1 micrometer, about one-hundredth the diameter of a human hair. (Z. Bao et al, Nature Communications)
Friday 3rd July 2015
Australian scientists reveal the potential of a new battery energy storage system
Friday 3rd July 2015
Building on a unique idea, scientists have developed a cost-effective new method for converting and storing solar energy into hydrogen.  
Monday 29th June 2015
Fraunhofer CSP in Saxony-Anhalt develops solutions for efficient, cost-effective and reliable solar modules
