solar cell efficiency
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, or NREL, one of more than a dozen national laboratories vested in renewable energy research under the auspices of the U.S.
Iowa State University (ISU) researchers, working in the Ames Laboratory (a U.S. Department of Energy-operated facility run by ISU), have reportedly developed a process whereby polymer solar cells become more efficient by the addition of a uniformly thin, light-absorbing layer on specially textured substrates.
Solar cell manufacturers are consistently leap-frogging one another in production of the most efficient solar cell.
On October 13, word leaked out that Macy’s fulfillment center in Goodyear, Arizona was getting a solar power system – one that company representatives described as “the biggest single-rooftop system in the United St
Engineers at Stanford University have run successful tests on a new solar conversion process that boasts efficiency upwards of 60% -- and potentially cheap enough to compete with oil.
