Quantum dot solar cells emerged in 2010 as the newest technology on an NREL chart that tracks research efforts to convert sunlight to electricity with increasing efficiency.
The MVCC Solar Project is another successful application of a net-metered project supported by a grant from New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
Sandia’s engineering team has designed, modeled and tested a control system that doubles the amount of power a wave energy converter can absorb from ocean waves, making electricity produced from wave energy less expensive.
The IMM technique licensed by MicroLink Devices enables multijunction III-V solar cells to be grown with both higher efficiencies and lower costs than traditional multijunction solar cells.
Seen on a microscopic level, MOFs look like buildings under construction–think of steel girders with space between them.
Storing energy and operating would be in two separate steps that tower CSP with storage is best suited to do.
