The air conditioning challenge in the Mediterranean Basin

Frédéric Dubessy writes on the econostrum.info website about a recent study by the World Bank to address the increasing penetration of air conditioning with the need to promote energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption.   Solar power bringing energy efficiency to Mediterranean air-conditioning Faced with an explosion in the numbers of air-conditioners in the Mediterranean … Continue reading

Silicon-based solar cells close to their maximum theoretical efficiency

Silicon-based solar cells close to their maximum theoretical efficiency

Sam Davis writes on the Power Electronics website about the use of silicon-perovskite to boost solar-cell efficiency. After decades of research and investment, silicon-based solar cells are close to their maximum theoretical efficiency. Will perovskite be the go-to material solution?   Scientists Use Silicon-Perovskite to Boost Solar-Cell Efficiency Scientists on both sides of the Atlantic … Continue reading
