Scorchio – Solar Energy is on the Up So too are Associated O&M Costs

The Early May Bank Holiday weekend saw record temperatures across the UK, with many southern and eastern counties experiencing hotter weather than the Mediterranean. Such was the weekend heatwave that solar power transpired to be the dominant energy source between 12.15 and 3.15 on the Sunday, producing more power that the conventional energy generation sources, […]

World Saw Largest Rise in Renewable Energy Capacity in 2017: Report

Both energy demand and energy-related carbon dioxide emissions rose substantially for the first time in four years. In the power sector, the transition to renewables is underway but is progressing more slowly than is possible or desirable. The global power generating capacity has seen an exceptional rise in 2017 and the main source of the […]

Monocrystalline Silicon Thin Film Cheaper and Faster to Fabricate

A research team from Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Waseda University have successfully produced high-quality thin film monocrystalline silicon with a reduced crystal defect density down to the silicon wafer level at a growth rate that is more than 10 times higher than before. In principle, this method can improve the raw material […]

Potassium Offers Perovskite-Based Solar Cells an Efficiency Boost

A simple potassium solution could boost the efficiency of next-generation solar cells, by enabling them to convert more sunlight into electricity. An international team of researchers led by the University of Cambridge found that the addition of potassium iodide ‘healed’ the defects and immobilised ion movement, which to date have limited the efficiency of cheap […]
