imec pushes 4-terminal perovskite/silicon tandem solar cell to record 27.1%

pvtech Nanoelectronics R&D organisation imec has reported a record 4-terminal Perovskite/silicon tandem photovoltaic cell with a conversion efficiency of 27.1%, while claiming further microcrystal engineering leads a path of efficiencies of over 30%. Key to the new record cell was said to be due to perovskite microcrystals. Manoj Jaysankar, doctoral researcher at imec/EnergyVille noted, “We

Europe’s first GW-sized solar park may be built in France – a Truck substitution Calculator

The huge 1.2 GW PV facility is currently being planned in the Lot-et-Garonne Department, southern France. The project’s required investment is expected to reach around €1 billion. Five big solar players are currently interested in developing the plant. Truck to kW, MW, GW Solar Substitution Photovoltaic Equivalent Calculator Energy of a average Truck (300 kW)
