Novel solar cell architecture performs well under real-world constraints

  • 3 weeks ago

Solar energy is a clean and renewable source of energy. Solar cells usually consist of a semiconductor material that absorbs sunlight and generates electricity. However, the amount of sunlight that can be converted into electricity is limited. Standard single-junction Solar cells are theoretically limited to a maximum power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 30 percent. This is the famous "Shockley-Queisser limit," which comes about from a trade-off between light absorption and charge carrier thermalization. To overcome this limit and reach higher efficiencies, different designs for solar cells have been considered. For instance, hot-carrier solar cells (HCSCs) make use of the excess kinet ...

China to double wind, solar energy capacity by 2025

  • 3 weeks ago

China aims to double its wind and Solar capacity by 2025, according to a new road map that also allows for more coal-fired power plants to bolster energy security. The world's biggest polluter earlier estimated it needs to double wind and Solar use by 2030 to deliver on its pledges under the Paris climate accord. The latest plan -- if implemented -- means China might reach that goal earlier. But Beijing has also ramped up reliance on coal-fired power plants in recent months to support its ailing economy as the Ukraine war pushes up global energy prices. The country's central economic planner said 33 percent of power supply to the national grid will come from renewable sources by 2025 ...
