Spray-on solar cells: Nanoparticle-based cells can be made with far less energy than conventional solar cells

Solar, Wyly, investment

Relatively inexpensive, easy-to-manufacture, nanoparticle-based solar cells can be created with materials that are abundantly common throughout the Earth’s crust, according to new work from researchers at the University of Alberta. The new nanoparticle-based solar cells — which could be mass-manufactured using simple methods, such as roll-to-roll printing or spray-coating — are possible thanks to a new type…

Interactive world map of temperature, solar incidence, terrain, population and others.

Users of the SolarGIS global database will already be familiar with the solar planning database which GeoModel Solar says has been described by the University of Geneva as „the most accurate solar resource database available on the market“. In addition to featuring the SolarGIS global database at Intersolar Europe 2013, GeoModel Solar will also be unveiling two updated online tools…

New crystals yield solar power breakthrough

Professor Michael Graetzel of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, announced in a paper in the journal Nature, a new two-step process for DSSC fabrication which raises the efficiency of these cells to 15%. Called dye-sensitised solar cells (DSSCs), reported efficiencies of 15% make them competitive with silicon photovoltaic cells. http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23327755 Related articles New…
