Ending Anti-Dumping Probe Make India’s Path to Achieve Solar Goals More Clearer

The domestic industry has cited certain reasons for its request to terminate the probe. They have stated that post-initiation, the injury being suffered by the domestic producers on account of dumping has aggravated sharply. This week, the two biggest developments happened in the solar industry. The first one is the termination of anti-dumping investigation by […]

New Breakthrough Boosts Solar Fuel Efficiency

Scientists of University of Twente have made significant efficiency improvements to the technology used to generate solar fuels. This involves the direct conversion of energy from sunlight into a usable fuel (in this case, hydrogen). Using only earthabundant materials, they developed the most efficient conversion method to date. The trick was to decouple the site […]

Slow ‘Hot Electrons’ Could Improve Solar Cell Efficiency

Photons with energy higher than the ‘band gap’ of the semiconductor absorbing them give rise to what are known as hot electrons. The extra energy in respect to the band gap is lost very fast, as it is converted into heat so it does not contribute to the voltage. University of Groningen Professor of Photophysics […]
