Researchers at King’s College London have devised a process whereby they were able to separate colors and create ‘rainbows’ on a metal surface using nanoscale structures. This new research may lead to improved solar cells and LED-displays.
With its easy to use portable solar power product christened Switch 8 Solar Recharging Kit, Goal Zero has taken a step further in encouraging reliance on the clean energy.
After the success of a solar project in Tokelau, these remote Pacific islands have become the first territory in the world to generate their electricity completely from solar energy.
According to a new research, it has been proved that an out-of-the-lab solar-power system can convert more than a third of the sun’s direct sunlight into electricity.
Global consultancy and certification firm DNV KEMA has envisaged the concept of floating solar islands as a part of clean energy solutions. Called SUNdy, the real idea behind the concept is creation of 2 MW hexagonal array which floats on the sea surface.
With the invention of an organic cell by Scientists at University of Warwick and Molecular Solar, recharging a lithium-ion battery of portable electronic devices would be easy.
In Japan, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has given a green signal to clean energy projects totalling around 1,780 megawatts of capacity. This decision has been taken under a government incentive program, which increases dependence on solar power up to 83% until the end of September.
A solar array has been installed at the new Big Y supermarket in Lee, MA by Real Goods Solar, Smart Energy Capital and Hudson Energy Solar. The setup supports 15% of the building’s annual electricity needs.
On 11 September, 2012, Trina Solar Ltd. (TSL) revealed plans to shape its business by separating photovoltaic module and system units.
