Solar power (also known as photovoltaics, or PV) is likely to become the dominant power source worldwide by 2050, according to a new study.
The MAPLE experiment was able to wirelessly transfer collected solar power to receivers in space and direct energy to Earth
A Saudi Arabian team has achieved a record level of efficiency with what's known as a 'tandem' solar cell: one that combines two different materials.
U.S. researchers claim to have increased the photoresponsivity of a lead-halide perovskite for solar cell applications by 250%.
The facility will generate energy that is equivalent to 370 million cubic meters of gas per year.
A professor is reporting on a new type of solar energy harvesting system that breaks the efficiency record of all existing technologies. And no less important, it clears the way to use solar power 24/7.
The Mammoth Solar farm will be built in a rural area of Indiana about 80 miles south-east of Chicago. Distributed throughout that space will be 2,850,000 solar panels, which will generate 1.65 gigawatts of electricity.
A recent study has found that renewables can meet most of the world’s energy needs. Even the most industrialized countries that need a heavy power supply can rely on renewable energy, specifically wind and solar.
A colossal US$22-billion infrastructure project will send Australian sunshine more than 5,000 km to Singapore, via high-voltage undersea cables.
California Institute of Technology is developing technology capable of generating solar power in space and beaming it back to Earth. Solar power could be continuously available anywhere on Earth.
Researchers have sent perovskite and organic solar cells on a rocket into space. The solar cells withstood the extreme conditions in space which will set the foundation for future near-Earth application and deep space missions.
A completely passive solar-powered desalination system could provide more than 5,5 liters of fresh drinking water per hour. Such systems could potentially serve off-grid arid coastal areas to provide an efficient, low-cost water source.
A new study proposes how thermoradiative technology could be used to make "anti-solar" cells that would work at night. These “anti-solar” cells could revolutionize renewable energy and make it far more proficient.
Tesla has released a giant new version of its latest home solar system – a 15.4 kW solar system suitable for 4,000+ sq ft homes. Tesla also recently launched the third version of its solar roof tiles and started to ramp-up installations.
