fabric solar panels

Created fabric with embedded solar panels

German researchers have developed soft and flexible fabric-based solar panels – they will be printed on rolls and then covered with trucks instead of tarps or house facades. “Solar tissue” was developed by scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute and their partners from the PhotoTex project, writes Engineer. A key element Read more…

these batteries

Doubled the performance of flowing batteries

The new technology uses non-toxic and readily available chemicals. Perhaps it is precisely these batteries that will replace lithium-ion in large-scale and expensive systems for stabilizing the production of solar and wind power plants. Researchers at the University of Colorado at Boulder have developed a new chemical composition that significantly Read more…

Solar panels will be from organic semiconductors

Two teams of American physicists have developed a strategy for the production of devices for converting light into electricity using organic semiconductors and “liberated” electrons. Organic semiconductors can reduce the cost of electronic devices and discover new methods for their production. However, these materials have certain limitations, which do not Read more…
