Finding The Best Use of Polymer Solar Cells

Finding The Best Use of Polymer Solar Cells

A report recently published in an online journal called Advanced Materials points out that a process has been developed by the researchers at the Iowa State University and the Ames Laboratory that can produce thin and constant light absorbing layers on textured substrates. This increases light absorption by polymer solar cells, thereby increasing their efficiency [...]

MIT Researchers Invent Infrared Solar Cells

MIT Researchers Invent Infrared Solar Cells

40% of all solar energy that hits the earth lays in the infrared spectrum. Imagine if this energy could be harnessed in much the same way that traditional photovoltaics cells convert sunlight (in the visible range) into useful electricity. This is exactly what a small research group at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) claims they [...]

Solar PV modules with mirror reflectors for a highway

Sun trackers are used in solar power systems to minimize the angle of incidence between the sun’s rays and a photovoltaic panel; they can adapt to both the daily passage of the sun and the changing seasons. By pointing the solar panel array directly at the brightest light source, most often the sun, energy produced [...]

Solar Cell Manufacturers – Know The Best Solar Cell Manufacturers

Every one of the solar cell manufacturers are usually supply limited. The whole planet created an overall total of 3.8 Giga Watts GW of solar cells in the year 2007. The actual developing ease of solar cells is little when compared with the capability necessary for government projects to improve renewable energy output. Europe really wants [...]
