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.

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.
