Researchers use liquid inks to create better solar cells
(Phys.org) —The basic function of solar cells is to harvest sunlight and turn it into electricity. Thus, it is critically important that the film that collects the light on the surface of the cell is designed ...
A promising light source for optoelectronic chips can be tuned to different frequencies
Chips that use light, rather than electricity, to move data would consume much less power—and energy efficiency is a growing concern as chips' transistor counts rise.
Non-volatile memory improves energy efficiency by two orders of magnitude
Buddhist singing bowls inspire new tandem solar cell design
The shape of a centuries-old Buddhist singing bowl has inspired a Canberra scientist to re-think the way that solar cells are designed to maximize their efficiency.
Solving the energy challenge in public buildings
Civil servants of the Government of Extremadura, located in Mérida, Spain, will have to work under challenging conditions when retrofitting public buildings with technological solutions based on renewable energy. They are ...
A platform to help consumers achieve sustainable energy consumption
While promoting sustainable electricity supplies requires coordination at the EU level, the actual implementation has to happen locally. If local actors – such as consumers – are to make a difference ...
