Climate Conditions Affect Solar Cell Performance More Than Expected

This shows how the difference in performance between the two solar cells vary over time.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers can now predict how much energy solar cells will produce at any location worldwide. Surprisingly, they identified that two types of solar cells (silicon and cadmium telluride) can vary in energy output by 5% or more in tropical regions, where most of the emerging

Scientists Discover Path to Improving Game-Changing Battery Electrode
Menlo Park, Calif. -- If you add more lithium to the positive electrode of a lithium-ion battery - overstuff it, in a sense - it can store much more charge in the same amount of space, theoretically powering an electric car 30 to 50 percent farther between charges. But these lithium-rich cathodes quickly lose

CIRES and RASEI researchers suggest that wind resources in the next century may decrease in many regions in the Northern Hemisphere--and could sharply increase in several hotspot regions down south. The first-of-its-kind study predicting how global wind power may shift with climate change appears today in Nature

Sustainable Solvent Platform for Photon Upconversion Increases Solar Utilization Efficiency

Deep eutectic solvents used as the medium of sensitizer and emitter chromophores (left) and the photon upconverter developed (right). The sample converts low-intensity (a few mW) green light into clear blue emission and demonstrates high thermal stability during exposure to a burner flame for 1 min.

The conversion of solar energy into electricity is currently restricted by a concept known as the Shockley-Quesser limit. This limitation allows only photons that have higher energies than those of the bandgap to be used, while those with lower energies are wasted. In an effort to obtain a solution to this problem

Next-Generation Solvent Contributes to Next-Generation Biofuel Production From Biomass

After dissolving plant biomass by the novel solvent, carboxylate-type liquid zwitterion, hydrolysis and fermentation were consecutively carried out in one reaction pot for conversion into ethanol.

The first-generation biofuel, industrialized, ethanol, is produced from foodstuffs like maize, and thus poses great concern about a possible future shortage of food. It is therefore necessary to produce ethanol from non-food biomass like weeds, waste paper, paper cup, etc. (second-generation biofuel ethanol).
