US Announces $56 Million Funding Opportunity For Solar

US Department of Energy Invites Proposals To Support CdTe & Perovskite Solar Technologies As Part Its PV R&D And Solar Manufacturing Incubator Projects

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has announced a $56 million funding opportunity for commercializing silicon free thin-film PV technology, perovskites and for projects that promote reuse and recycling of solar technologies, as the country seeks to develop local and clean energy supply chain.

15.1% Efficiency For Polymer Film Based Perovskite

Toshiba Corporation Claims Highest Power Conversion Efficiency For Large, Polymer-Film Based Perovskite Solar Module; 15.1% Efficiency Was Achieved For 703 cm² Large-Area Perovskite Solar Module

Japanese electronics and engineering firm Toshiba Corporation has reported having achieved 15.1% power conversion efficiency for its 703 cm² large-area perovskite solar module calling it the highest for any large, polymer-film based perovskite PV module.

Fraunhofer ISE’s Copper Plated Perovskite Cell Spin-Off

Germany’s Fraunhofer ISE Preparing To Spin-Off PV2plus As Spin-Off To Commercialize Copper Plating Technology For Silicon Solar Cells, Sans Rare Materials

German research institute Fraunhofer ISE is working on a technology to use copper plating to develop environment friendly high performance silicon solar cells without the use of rare materials as silver, which holds the potential to bring down total production cost for the industry.

Phosphate Salt To Restrain Lead From Mixing With Soil

Sustainable Perovskite Cell Production: EPFL Researchers Offer ‘Elegant & Efficient’ Solution To Prevent Lead From Perovskite Solar Cell From Seeping Into Soil & Water

The School of Basic Sciences at the Swiss Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) recommends transparent phosphate salt as a restrainer for lead from halide perovskite solar cells from getting absorbed by the soil when the solar panel stops working, breaks or gets wet.
