Toward home-brewed electricity with 'personalized solar energy'
New scientific discoveries are moving society toward the era of "personalized solar energy," in which the focus of electricity production shifts from huge central generating stations to individuals in their own homes and communities. View News Article (2009-12-17)


Research findings in solar cells will have an impact on solar panel industry
University of Luxembourg's Laboratory for Photovoltaics has established a method to observe and prevent solar cell degradation before solar cell production is finished, which has implications for the solar cell manufacturing industry since chemical damage to solar cells can occur quickly.  View News Article (2012-10-12)

Solar power much cheaper to produce than most analysts realize, study finds
The public is being kept in the dark about the viability of solar photovoltaic energy, according to a study conducted at Queen's University. View News Article (2011-12-08)


Making solar panels with cleaner, greener technology
Mention solar energy, and most people think "squeaky clean, pollution-free." The reality of making solar panels with existing technology, however, is much different, involving use of potentially toxic substances and lots of energy. View News Article (2011-02-24)


Researchers develop new possibilities for solar power
Two Queen's researchers have contributed to a significant breakthrough in solar technology. Their research has led to a new solar photovoltaic thermal (PVT) system that generates both electricity and heat. View News Article (2012-07-11)


Nano surfaces could slash cost of solar energy
Nanotechnologies which can artificially change the optical properties of materials to allow light to be trapped in solar cells could greatly reduce the cost of solar energy. View News Article (2005-02-03)


New Connection between Stacked Solar Cells Can Handle Energy of 70,000 Suns
North Carolina State University researchers have come up with a new technique for improving the connections between stacked solar cells, which should improve the overall efficiency of solar energy devices and reduce the cost of solar energy production. View News Article (2013-09-06)


The future of solar-powered houses is clear
People could live in glass houses and look at the world through rose-tinted windows while reducing their carbon emissions by 50% thanks to QUT Institute of Sustainable Resources (ISR) research. View News Article (2008-04-10)


DOE outlines research needed to improve solar energy technologies
To help achieve the Bush Administration's goal of increased use of solar and other renewable forms of energy, the Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science has released a report describing the basic research needed to produce "revolutionary progress in bringing solar energy to its full potential in the energy marketplace." View News Article (2005-08-15)
