Red bricks ? some of the world's cheapest and most familiar building materials ? can be converted into energy storage units that can be charged to hold electricity, like a battery, according to new research.
Imagine the environmental benefits if we could all simply paint solar cells onto the roof of our houses, or onto any surface for that matter. We could do this using perovskite solar cells, but, due to their instability, they have not yet been widely introduced. Now, researchers from the Graphene Flagship have developed hybrids of graphene and molybdenum disulphide quantum dots to stabilise PSCs.
INNOSEA, a leading engineering firm specialized in Offshore Renewables and part of LOC Group, is pleased to announce it has been invited to join the Floating Solar JIP consortium, a group of 23 leading companies in the renewable energy arena.
Finnish technology company ICS has developed a unique technology platform and a film solution providing a 5-10% increase in energy output for conventional solar modules - and even higher gains for more advanced applications.
In the past two decades, the car market has declined twice: first due to the 2008 economic crisis, and then due to falling sales in China. Most recently, the lockdowns implemented to combat the coronavirus pandemic, causing auto-production plants to close globally and a loss of consumer spending will lead to an unprecedented 23% decline in 2020 (IDTechEx prediction).
