New World Record For Solar Conversion Efficiency

Sandia National Laboratories and Stirling Energy Systems (SES) have set a new solar-to-grid system conversion efficiency record by achieving a 31.25 percent net efficiency rate. The old 1984 record of 29.4 percent was toppled using SES’s “Serial #3” solar dish Stirling system at Sandia’s National Solar Thermal Test Facility. Serial #3 is part of a […]

Cost Breakthrough For Inorganic Solar Cells




While much of the research into solar power in recent times has been focused on organic solar cells, researchers from Berkeley Lab and the University of California have announced a breakthrough in the manufacture of inorganic dual-nanocrystal cells. The researchers say that the ultra-thin solar cells are comprised entirely of inorganic nanocrystals and are as […]
