To increase the efficiency of solar cells, one strategy is to turn low-energy light into more energetic, visible light that can excite silicon.
The Realising Electric Vehicle-to-Grid Services (REVS) project will see 51 Nissan LEAF EVs deployed across the ACT.
The flexible organic cell degrades by less than 5% over 3000 hours in atmospheric conditions and has an energy conversion ratio of 13%.
Scientists have designed a self-healing, protective layer in the battery that significantly slows down the electrolyte and silicon anode degradation process.
Researchers have stabilised one of the most challenging parts of lithium–sulfur batteries, bringing the technology closer to becoming commercially viable.
Korean scientists have identified a novel method to create efficient alloy-based solar panels free of toxic metals.
Australian and Indian researchers have shown how to improve sulfur utilisation in the batteries of the future, which would make them more efficient.
With the development of a novel silica-based cathode, scientists have realised lithium–sulfur batteries that can last for over 2000 charge/discharge cycles.
The experimental solar energy cells pass strict International Electrotechnical Commission testing standards for heat and humidity.
Researchers have developed quantum dot solar cells that match the efficiency of existing quantum dot-based devices, but without lead or other toxic elements.
RECOM recognises that speed is essential in the current crisis, and so is offering samples free of charge for any medical-grade equipment design.
