Researchers to advance solar material production

A Washington State University team has developed a more efficient, safer, and cost-effective way to produce cadmium telluride (CdTe) material for solar cells or other applications, a discovery that could advance the solar industry and make it more competitive. The researchers showed they could rapidly grow a large amount of high-purity CdTe material — a more than kilogram-sized crystal in

NeoVolta to Introduce Higher-Capacity NV24 Home Solar Battery System

NeoVolta has dramatically expanded the storage capacity of its NV14 home solar battery with the new NV24 battery add-on. Pairing the NV14 with the NV24 increases storage capacity from 14.4 kilowatt-hours to 24.0 kWh, making this one of the highest-capacity home solar storage systems on the market. With additional energy stored for later use, the paired system further slashes monthly utility bills and

CEA INES and Enel to announce 24.63% efficiency for heterojunction solar cell

2020 gets off to a flying start with a new heterojunction solar cell efficiency record certified of 24.63% total area on M2 wafer. This first in class and outstanding milestone was achieved in partnership between CEA, INES and Enel Green Power. This result is exciting not only for the efficiency figures but also because it was obtained using standard PECVD and PVD layers on Meyer Burgerequipment combined
