Swedish Nano Film Technology Improves Efficiency Of Solar Cells

Sol Voltaics, the Swedish development company, has developed a nano film, which can increase the efficiency of solar cells. According to research, a solar cell coated with the nano film has proven to increase its production by 50 percent or more. Lars Samuelsson, Professor of Solid State Physics at Lund University, who led the research behind the company, said: “This is fantastic progress. Standard solar cells with an efficiency of 16-17 percent can be boosted up to 27 percent. Yet the cost of the finished solar cells is no more than 10-15 percent.”

IT Innovation Essential For Upcoming Grid Integration Challenges Ahead

Modern IT solutions can act as a catalyst to accelerate the development of renewable energies, as they play a key role in adapting demand to the prevailing sun and wind conditions. Ulrich Dietz, CEO of GFT Technologies AG stated that successful implementation will require huge investments in the intelligent controlling and grid integration of wind and solar power. He believes that, in Germany, in particular, the IT industry can play a significant role in this change by formulating creative solutions. “If we are fast, we can create 50,000 new jobs in this field over the coming years at IT companies alone”. Experts forecast that 25 to 30 billion euros will have to be invested in Germany by 2030 and that the opportunities for German energy technology and the IT industry on the global markets for smart grids are immense.

Report: Renewables Can Supply All Of USA Power Needs

A new report lays out the reasons and means to alter the United States’s energy supply entirely to renewable energies. It examines the fall in wind and solar costs and the fact that solar growth has exceeded energy advocates’ expectations. It states that The United States has the technical potential to achieve its electricity needs more than 100 times over with solar energy and more than 10 times over with wind energy. Detailed studies on clean energy systems have shown that there are no obstacles in achieving a move to 100% renewable energy; it is entirely possible to make a complete transition at a cost that would be comparable or less than is currently spent on dirty energy.

Electric Vehicles – An Astonishing Opportunity For Utilities, Storage And Grids

Utilities have been slow to adopt renewable innovations like wind and rooftop solar, according to some critics, however, utilities now have the opportunity to seize a share of the $400bn US petrol market from the oil companies. Capturing market share for light-duty vehicles alone, “power sales would rise by about 25%, adding roughly $100bn per year to electric utility revenues and saving car drivers about $300bn a year”, states Michael Shepherd, Chairman of E-Source, highlighting a superb opportunity for utilities to boost significantly the growth of EV transportation.
