How micro-converters and power optimizers help solar panels make hay when the sun doesn’t shine

Everybody wants to get maximum benefit out of their purchase. And the want applies only too well for solar panels. Producing electricity using unconventional sources like sun, wind, geothermal or biogas hasn’t been an easy task. Apart from innovating on surface materials that converts these kinds of sources into electric current, there’s a host of […]

This new material keeps solar cells cool while still catching lights

Solar cells capture sunlight and turn it into electricity, but most of the surplus energy turns into heat, which actually harms the solar cell and interestingly solar cells are only about 20 percent efficient. Researchers at Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, USA have come out with a technology to keep the solar cells cool. The […]
