Researchers demonstrate a new method to fabricate solar perovskite solar cells in ambient air bringing their efficiency up to 18.3%, which could boost perovskite technology towards production and commercialization of high performance and stable devices.
Former First Solar CTO brings years of industry knowledge to long-duration battery storage company
WILSONVILLE, Ore., Feb. 23, 2021 — ESS Inc., a manufacturer of long-duration iron-based flow batteries for commercial and utility-scale energy storage applications, announces the addition of renewable energy industry veteran Raffi Garabedian to their board of directors.
Padua, Italy, February 27, 2021 (Solar Business Hub) — Eurostat figures show that Northern-European countries are keener on using renewable energy such as Latvia where the gross consumption of renewable energy sources (RES) amounts to 41.0%, which is the third-highest share of RES in the European Union (EU) after Sweden and Finland.
Latvia’s primary renewable energy sources are biomass and hydropower, however, solar power opportunities are also being developed even in low-radiation areas where photovoltaics is still convenient and efficient. Such is the case of the 200 kW ground-mounted system installed by Latvian energy company AJ Power for the fish-canning company Banga Ltd at its factory to reduce the company’s costs over the long term.
The 38th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition is planned to take place from 6 – 10 of September 2021 at the Lisbon Congress Centre (CCL) in Lisbon, Portugal.
Lachen, Germany, February 16, 2021 (Solar Business Hub) — SunBrush® mobil, the world market leader for solar cleaning equipment, and Infinity, the Egyptian solar project developer, have opened a service base at Africa’s largest solar power plant.
