TU/e researchers Adriana Creatore and Rene Janssen collaborate in Solliance to push the efficiency of solar cells.
A collaborative effort has installed electronic “brains” on solar-powered robots that are 100 to 250 micrometers in size – smaller than an ant’s head – so that they can walk autonomously without being externally controlled.
The new approach moves energy efficiently and could reduce energy losses converting light into electricity.
Plants use light waves from only a portion of the spectrum for photosynthesis – the remainder can be recovered and used to generate solar power. That’s the idea behind the solar modules developed by EPFL startup Voltiris.
The shift to renewable energy is on the rise as fossil fuel reserves deplete. Learn about the growing interest in pairing energy storage with solar power, the tradeoffs that come with doing so, and how Capacitech’s flexible supercapacitor technology can help customers overcome these challenges.
In this episode, we talk about how researchers are bringing affordable space technology to the masses via additive manufacturing along with a manufacturing approach that could serve as the keystone for wide scale use of affordable, semitransparent organic solar cells.
A peel-off patterning technique could enable more fragile organic semiconductors to be manufactured into semitransparent solar panels at scale.
Optimized Light Paths, High-throughput Laser Scribing and the Use of Established Coating Processes Paves the Way to Commercial Viability – Publication in Nature Energy
Producing synthesis gas, a precursor of a variety of fuels and chemicals, no longer requires natural gas, coal or biomass.
DC power supplies are available in switch-mode (also known as switching) or linear configurations of which switching power supply is preferred in modern-day electronics due to their low cost, compact design, and improved efficiency.
Virtual and augmented reality are becoming increasingly useful for manufacturing, maintenance, construction and surveying activities, but what good is an advanced immersive visual medium if you can’t use it for very long?
In this episode, we talk about how researchers are making advancements in the energy harvesting and energy storage fronts to make renewable energy a more viable alternative to fossil fuels.
Princeton Engineering researchers have developed the first perovskite solar cell with a commercially viable lifetime, marking a major milestone for an emerging class of renewable energy technology.
PerPetum is an innovative renewable energy company and one of the largest constructors of solar parks in the Benelux. Headquartered in Belgium and active in The Netherlands for over five years they opened an office at High Tech Campus Eindhoven in early 2020
