NTU scientists discover material that can be solar cell by day, light panel by night

In future, when your mobile or tablet runs out of battery, you could just recharge it by putting it out in the sun. Nanyang Technological University (NTU) scientists have developed a next-generation solar cell material which can also emit light, in addition to converting light to electricity. This solar cell is developed from Perovskite, a promising material that could hold the key to creating high-efficiency, inexpensive solar cells. The new

The Red Faces of the Solar Skeptics

By Nancy Folbre, professor emerita of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. If the faces of renewable energy critics are not red yet, they soon will be. For years, these critics — of solar photovoltaics in particular — have called renewable energy a boutique fantasy. A recent Wall Street Journal blog post continues the trend, asserting that solar subsidies take money from the poor to benefit the rich. But solar-generated electricity is turning

High-Concentration Solar Photovoltaic Systems to Reach Greater Efficiencies

  Consistent improvements in technology and gradually lower costs will drive high-concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) systems to superior efficiencies, making HCPV an increasingly viable rival to conventional solar-generating solutions, according to the latest analysis from IHS Technology. The cell efficiency of HCPV systems, currently at 40 to 42 percent, will exceed 45 percent by 2017. Such cells, used with concentrating optics, will then lead to commercial-system efficiencies approaching 40 percent, compared

Solar Power Begins to Shine as Environmental Benefits Pay Off

  PARIS — Amid polemics over rising electricity prices in Europe and the level of green energy subsidies in various countries, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that the growth in clean-energy generation is a huge success story. Solar photovoltaic generation, known as PV, like wind power before it, is coming into the mainstream — at great environmental benefit. Based on comparative life-cycle analyses of power sources,

Solar-powered travel: opening up new routes across sky, sea and land

The wings of the experimental aircraft arch more than 63 metres, the same span as an Airbus A340, but they look frail, supported on the airstrip by wheeled struts. They are covered in a patina of 11,268 photovoltaic cells, which look dark blue in the grey predawn. The four 10-horsepower propellers they power now start to spin silently. Bertrand Piccard, a 55-year-old explorer and psychiatrist, dons his helmet and oxygen mask and

Caribbean Islands Agree to Swap Diesel Power for Renewable Sources

Several Caribbean nations committed on Thursday to start replacing diesel generators, the most common means of producing electricity on islands, with renewable sources like wind, solar or the earth’s heat. The countries, which have already taken steps toward developing the new energy projects and include St. Lucia, Turks and Caicos and the British Virgin Islands, signed the pact at a multiday meeting organized by the Carbon War Room, a nonprofit

New theory may lead to more efficient solar cells

A new theoretical model developed by professors at the University of Houston (UH) and Universite de Montreal may hold the key to methods for developing better materials for solar cells. Eric Bittner, a John and Rebecca Moores Professor of Chemistry and Physics in UH's College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Carlos Silva, an associate professor at the Universite de Montreal and Canada Research Chair in Organic Semiconductor Materials, say

Here Comes the Sun-Powered MacBook?

Apple wants to use natural energy sources to keep MacBooks powered while on the move. The company has won a patent for a laptop with a lid that features a second display, touch inputs and solar cells. The latter could help users keep their MacBooks' batteries topped up without having to plug in an external charger. Apple filed its application in 2010, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted

Low energy bills come rain or shine from solar and wind power

The savings made by installers of loft insulation, new boilers and cavity wall insulation may only be half the amount promised, but there is one area where many households are keeping warm and cutting their bills – by taking advantage of feed-in tariffs. Chris Handel, 44, a chartered surveyor from Brighton and his wife, Hilary, 52, have doubled the size of their home in recent years by extending, but their energy bills
