Getting into hot water
An analysis of the engineering and economics for a solar water-heating system shows it to have a payback period of just two years, according to researchers in India. They report, in the International Journal of Global Energy Issues, on the success of the 1000-liter system operating at a university hostel. View News Article (2009-03-09)


New method for reporting solar data
A straightforward new way to calculate, compile, and graphically present solar radiation measurements in a format that is accessible to decision makers and the general public has been developed by researchers at the University of Texas at Austin.  View News Article (2011-01-11)


Plastic solar cell efficiency breaks record at WFU nanotechnology center
The global search for a sustainable energy supply is making significant strides at Wake Forest University as researchers at the university's Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials have announced that they have pushed the efficiency of plastic solar cells to more than 6 percent. View News Article (2007-04-20)


Selenium makes more efficient solar cells
Call it the anti-sunscreen. That's more or less the description of what many solar energy researchers would like to find -- light-catching substances that could be added to photovoltaic materials in order to convert more of the sun's energy into carbon-free electricity.  View News Article (2010-08-04)


Research Team Assesses Environmental Impact of Organic Solar Cells
Solar energy could be a central alternative to petroleum-based energy production. However, current solar-cell technology often does not produce the same energy yield and is more expensive to mass-produce. In addition, information on the total effect of solar energy production on the environment is incomplete, experts say. View News Article (2010-09-20)


Solar energy production has enormous potential in southeastern Ontario: Queen's University studies
Solar power in southeastern Ontario has the potential to produce almost the same amount of power as all the nuclear reactors in the United States, according to two studies conducted by the Queen's University Applied Sustainability Research Group located in Kingston, Canada. View News Article (2010-04-15)


Energy breakthrough uses sun to create solar energy materials
In a recent advance in solar energy, researchers have discovered a way to tap the sun not only as a source of power, but also to directly produce the solar energy materials that make this possible. View News Article (2014-04-04)


Tecnalia participates in creation of glass that optimizes use of solar energy
The Construction Unit at Tecnalia (in conjunction with the University of Cantabria) has taken part in the Sunglass project, the aim of which is to develop a new building product. View News Article (2010-08-26)


New efficiency record for solar cells
The efficiency improvement is achieved by the use of an ultra-thin aluminum oxide layer at the front of the cell, and it brings a breakthrough in the use of solar energy a step closer. View News Article (2008-05-15)


Scientists demonstrate high-efficiency quantum dot solar cells
