Although PV technology has been around for over 40 years, solar cells remain only 30% efficient. This means they only convert one-third of the energy harnessed from the sun into usable electricity. However, this may be about to change soon… Cells in solar modules are currently made of silicon, but there is a new Read more about The future of solar[…]
The first hours of a lithium-ion battery’s life largely determine just how well it will perform. In those moments, a set of molecules self-assembles into a structure inside the battery that will affect the battery for years to come. This component, known as the solid-electrolyte interphase or SEI, has the crucial job of blocking some Read more about Why lithium-ion batteries work at all?[…]

According to a report released by the Vienna university of technology. A new type of material generates electrical current very efficiently from temperature differences.
In accordance with new legislation Anti Island may be required for registration of PV solar system in many cases as per local and international legislation and safety regulation. The ability of a small-scale embedded generator (SSEG) installation to instantly and automatically disconnect from the municipal electrical grid is legally required when there is a power Read more about Legal Anti-Island relays for CCOC registrations may be required for your PV System to be legal.[…]
Earlier this year, a local solar manufacturer in South Africa’s that is only 100% locally-owned solar panel manufacturer – lodged an application proposing the introduction of tariffs on all imported crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules. They argue this would retain local production capacity and jobs – enabling the South African solar industry to grow significantly. Following Read more about Import tariffs proposed for solar panels in South Africa[…]
