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.
This advancement has the potential to reduce both the cost and weight of the battery device, while substantially increasing safety and lifetime.
NREL is working with Columbia Power Technologies’ StingRAY wave energy converter. Designed to deliver electricity at a competitive cost while having a low environmental impact
The challenge of making a more durable cell must be overcome before renewable hydrogen from PEC devices can become commercially viable.
NREL scientists turned to quantum dots to remove the unstable organic component and open the door to high- efficiency quantum dot optoelectronics that can be used in LED lights and solar photovoltaics.
Two technologies developed by researchers at the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and a third developed through a collaboration
