Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Renewable energy targets can undermine sustainable intentions
    Renewable energy targets (RETs) may be too blunt a tool for ensuring a sustainable future, according to new research.

  2. How to design organic solar cell materials
    Scientists have recently scrutinized organic solar cells and derived design rules for light-absorbing dyes that can help to make these cells more efficient, while tailoring the absorption spectrum of the cells to the needs of the chosen application.

  3. Photovoltaics industry can help meet Paris agreement targets
    To meet the Paris Agreement's goal of preventing Earth's average temperature from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial level, one of the best options for the energy economy will involve a shift to 100% renewable energy using solar energy and other clean energy sources. Researchers describe a model developed to predict what is necessary for the solar industry to meet Paris Agreement targets.
    Material properties for longer-lasting, more efficient solar cells
    Researchers are helping to understand the fundamental processes in a material known as perovskites, work that could lead to more efficient solar cells that also do a better job of resisting degradation.

  4. Powering the future: New insights into how alkali-metal doped flexible solar cells work
    A group of scientists has discovered that the amount of alkali metal introduced into crystals of flexible thin-film solar cells influences the path that charge carriers take to traverse between electrodes, thereby affecting the light-to-electricity conversion efficiency of the solar cell. Given the immense application potential that such solar cells have today, this finding could be key to ushering in a green future.
    Turning streetwear into solar power plants
    Researchers have developed a material that works like a luminescent solar concentrator and can even be applied to textiles. This opens up numerous possibilities for producing energy directly where it is needed, i.e. in the use of everyday electronics.

  5. Colorful perovskites: Thermochromic window technologies
    Scientists report a breakthrough in developing a next-generation thermochromic window that not only reduces the need for air conditioning but simultaneously generates electricity.

  6. A renewable solution to keep cool in a warming world
    Month-after-month, year-after-year, the world continues to experience record high temperatures. In response to this and exacerbated by a growing global population, it is expected that air-conditioning demand will continue to rise. A new study explored the pros and cons of seawater air-conditioning as an alternative cooling solution.

  7. Perovskite tandem solar cells
    Scientists have revealed the significant improvements they are making in perovskite-based solar cells.

  8. Fraction of money earmarked for COVID-19 recovery could boost climate efforts
    Global stimulus plans for economic recovery after the pandemic could easily cover climate-friendly policies, suggests a new study.
