3-D Graphene: Solar Cells' New Platinum?
Technologies PV - Technologies et procédés
Mardi, 01 Octobre 2013 10:28

One of the most promising types of solar cells has a few drawbacks. A scientist at Michigan Technological University may have overcome one of them.

Dye-sensitized solar cells are thin, flexible, easy to make and very good at turning sunshine into electricity. However, a key ingredient is one of the most expensive metals on the planet: platinum. While only small amounts are needed, at $1,500 an ounce, the cost of the silvery metal is still significant.

Mardi, 01 Octobre 2013 10:25

U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) research scientists and engineers in the Electronics Science and Technology Division have demonstrated the highest recorded open-circuit voltages for quantum dot solar cells to date. Using colloidal lead sulfide (PbS) nanocrystal quantum dot (QD) substances, researchers achieved an open-circuit voltage (VOC) of 692 millivolts (mV) using the QD bandgap of a 1.4 electron volt (eV) in QD solar cell under one-sun illumination.

Jeudi, 25 Juillet 2013 12:02

Two new reports on rural electrification applications for pico and hybrid PV systems have been published by the Photovoltaic Power System Programme from the International Energy Agency (IEA PVPS).

The reports come from the IEA-PVPS Task 9 group, working on Deploying PV services for regional development, and conclude that with decreasing PV prices, PV/diesel hybrid mini-grids and pico PV are attracting significant attention from institutions in charge of rural electrification and donor agencies.
