Come On! Print your own solar panels?

Come On! Print your own solar panels?

Someone has to think the unthinkable. Who ever thought of printing your own solar panels? Paul Dastoor, Professor, School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Newcastle explains that it has just happened.  It may still be in the trial stage but the potential seems enormous. Professor Dastoor explains in an article on … 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
