Scientist invents way to trigger artificial photosynthesis to clean air

Orlando FL (SPX) Apr 26, 2017
A chemistry professor in Florida has just found a way to trigger the process of photosynthesis in a synthetic material, turning greenhouse gases into clean air and producing energy all at the same time. The process has great potential for creating a technology that could significantly reduce greenhouse gases linked to climate change, while also creating a clean way to produce energy. "This

Ancala and Anesco deploy large scale battery at UK solar farm

London, UK (SPX) Apr 26, 2017
Ancala Partners and Anesco have completed the first portfolio-scale deployment of batteries co-located on solar parks in the UK. The batteries, located at 10 of Ancala's existing solar PV sites across England, will provide balancing and frequency response services to the National Grid. Renewable electricity generators such as solar parks are intermittent producers of electricity. The rapid

Experts outline pathway for generating up to 10 terawatts of power from sunlight by 2030

Golden CO (SPX) Apr 26, 2017
The annual potential of solar energy far exceeds the world's energy consumption, but the goal of using the sun to provide a significant fraction of global electricity demand is far from being realized. Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), their counterparts from similar institutes in Japan and Germany, along with researchers at univer

Solar cell design with over 50 percent energy-conversion efficiency

Kobe, Japan (SPX) Apr 26, 2017
Solar cells convert the sun's energy into electricity by converting photons into electrons. A new solar cell design could raise the energy conversion efficiency to over 50% by absorbing the spectral components of longer wavelengths that are usually lost during transmission through the cell. This research was carried out by a team led by Professor KITA Takashi and Project Assistant Professo

Indian Space Agency Comes Up With an App Indicating Solar Power Potential

New Delhi (Sputnik) Apr 26, 2017
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has developed an Android app that will show the solar potential of a given location in any part of the country. The app was developed to support the clean energy target of generating 175,000 MW power through non-fossil fuel energy. The computation of solar energy potential is essential for selecting locations for solar photovoltaic (PV) thermal
