  • OPV Solar Trees at EXPO 2015, ARGE OPV Consortium for German BMBF Case Study

    It sounds like science fiction: a feather-light solar generator hangs above a public space, its light, swaying form casting a pattern of shadows like leaves on a tree. But it’s real: individual solar cells are suspended from a net of steel cables, generating electricity at the same time as casting shade on the space below and protecting it from the elements. And it’s eye-catching, ...

  • In situ indium–induced crystallisation of low temperature nano–poly silicon (LTNPS) thin film on ITO glass substrate

    For the first time, the low temperature nano–poly silicon (LTNPS) thin films were formed on indium tin oxide (ITO) glass with a temperature of ∼200ºC using the in situ indium–induced crystallisation of the plasma enhanced CVD (PECVD) deposited a–Si. Compared with the conventional method for transfer of the PECVD formed amorphous structure to the nano–poly one, the technology features a low ...

  • CSP Thermal Energy Storage vital for utilities and grid operators

    The modern age of CSP can arguably be traced back to the 354MW Solar Energy Generating Systems (SEGS) in the Mojave desert, which now make up the oldest operating plant in the world, as well as one of the largest. However, recent developments in the industry will see SEGS eclipsed by 5 projects that are scheduled to come online in 2013-14, with a combined total of 1312MW. The five plants in ...
