A large foundation will award US$10 million to add a new dimension to energy policy issues.
Current module assembly methodologies based on solder processes, while effective for today's cell dimensions, are challenged by the move to thinner, larger solar cells.

Pessimists in this space like to point toward diagrams showing the base efficiency of solar panels, both silicon and thin film, isn’t rising at a Moore’s Law rate. But there are other ways to generate improvement in efficiency. You can do a better job of pointing them toward the resource, one reason few panels sit flat. You can make sure […]
One of the biggest mistakes we make in looking at solar energy, and its possible improvement, is to focus only on panel prices and efficiency. Breakthroughs in both those areas are constant but there are other dimensions to improvement, dimensions that can raise solar’s share of the market both by increasing efficiency and reducing the size of that market. That’s […]
Several organizations in he U.S. pacific northwest will establish a new framework of web-based technology to integrate renewable energy and other distributed sources, in order to strengthen the transmission systems to secure the region's energy supply.
In visualizing microgrids as smaller versions of the existing grid, we ignore a whole new dimension of the impending electricity revolution that I wish to call “microgrid as metaphor,” and distinguish it from “microgrid as fact.” Let me elaborate.
The solar PV industry has experienced phenomenal growth and widespread popularity as an alternative source for creating electricity. Government policies and incentives have proven to be important enablers to industry growth. However, incentives can’t continue forever and the industry needs to continue to drive down total costs in order to remain competitive to alternative energy sources and open new markets. As industries and products mature they learn how to drive down costs through ever greater application of “plug-n-play.”
[The Economic Times] The ongoing global negotiations on climate change may take the same dimension as the much hyped-up WTO rounds. And once that happens, the demand for clean energy will increase manifold as each country will make a serious bid to convince the world that it has been increasing the share of green energy to contain global carbon emission.
Two scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Jerry Olson and Sarah Kurtz, have been named 2007 Dan David Prize Laureates for their contributions to the field of photovoltaics. In December 2006, a multi-junction cell based on Olson's and Kurtz's design, and manufactured by Spectrolab, set a world-record conversion efficiency of 40.7 percent.
