Australia Sets World Record For Solar Thermal Efficiency With 97% Conversion

Scientists at The Australian National University (ANU) have set a world record for efficiency for a solar thermal dish generating steam that could be used for power stations. The team designed and built a new receiver for the solar concentrator dish at ANU, halving losses and achieving a 97 percent conversion of sunlight into steam. The breakthrough could lead to the generation of cheaper base-load electricity from renewable energy and help lower carbon emissions which cause global warming.

India Powers On; First Solar Connects 130MW Utility-Scale Solar Power To Grid

First Solar has announced the connection of 130MW utility-scale solar power to the Indian grid. The 130 MWAC plants collectively will produce enough energy to power 227,500 average homes in India, and will displace over 204,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. The project is powered by more than 1.4 million First Solar modules, offering highly predictable energy in all climates and applications. The modules have been independently tested to pass accelerated life and stress tests beyond industry standards.

E-Mobility Driven Forward With Boosts In Manufacturing And Infrastructure

With ambitious targets for electric mobility, Japan and China are currently driving the organisation of their national vehicle markets forward; both in the hydrogen and fuel cell technologies as well as in the further development of battery-driven systems. Emission-free drives for cars and buses are being advanced. The combination of rigid pollutant regulations and attractive incentive systems is — in China and in leading European markets as well as the USA, with Tesla — the unavoidable path that needs to be taken in order to meet the requirements of the Paris World Climate Convention.
