A new modifier increases the efficiency of perovskite solar cells
www.solarenergyconnect.com

Moscow, Russia (SPX) Feb 12, 2021 The research team of NUST MISIS has presented an improved structure of perovskite solar cells. Scientists have modified perovskite-based solar cells using MXenes – thin two-dimensional titanium carbides with high electrical conductivity. The MXenes-based modified cells showed superior performance, with power conversion efficiency exceeding 19% (the reference demonstrated 17%) […]

Radiative cooling and solar heating from one system, no electricity needed
www.solarenergyconnect.com

Buffalo NY (SPX) Feb 09, 2021 Passive cooling, like the shade a tree provides, has been around forever. Recently, researchers have been exploring how to turbo charge a passive cooling technique – known as radiative or sky cooling – with sun-blocking, nanomaterials that emit heat away from building rooftops. While progress has been made, this […]
