Perovskite Solar Cells Have Intrinsic Instability Issues

Solar cell technology is now used by many industrial and government entities, but it is still prohibitively expensive for many individuals who would like to utilize it. There is a need for cheaper, more efficient solar cells than the traditional silicon solar cells so that more people may have access to this technology. One of [...]

A new energy cell capable of storing large-scale solar energy even when it’s dark has been developed by a science and engineering team from University of Texas at Arlington. Most conventional solar energy systems rely on using sunlight immediately as a power source, and are hindered by not being able to use that solar energy [...]

The production of renewable kerosene from sunlight, water and carbon dioxide (CO2) has been demonstrated by the EU-funded SOLAR-JET project. This synthesized “solar” jet fuel has the potential for revolutionizing the future of aviation. The process also may be able to produce any other type of fuel for transportation, including diesel, gasoline or pure hydrogen, [...]
