Milestone in solar cell efficiency by Australian engineers

A new solar cell configuration developed by engineers at the University of New South Wales has pushed sunlight-to-electricity conversion efficiency to 34.5% – establishing a new world record for unfocused sunlight and nudging closer to the theoretical limits for such a device.

The record was set by Dr Mark Keevers and Professor Martin Green, Senior Research Fellow and Director, respectively, of UNSW’s Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics, using a 28-cm2 four-junction mini-module – embedded in a prism – that extracts the maximum energy from sunlight. It does this by splitting the incoming rays into four bands, using a hybrid four-junction receiver to squeeze even more electricity from each beam of sunlight.

Milestone in solar cell efficiency by Australian engineers

A new solar cell configuration developed by engineers at the University of New South Wales has pushed sunlight-to-electricity conversion efficiency to 34.5% – establishing a new world record for unfocused sunlight and nudging closer to the theoretical limits for such a device.

The record was set by Dr Mark Keevers and Professor Martin Green, Senior Research Fellow and Director, respectively, of UNSW’s Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics, using a 28-cm2 four-junction mini-module – embedded in a prism – that extracts the maximum energy from sunlight. It does this by splitting the incoming rays into four bands, using a hybrid four-junction receiver to squeeze even more electricity from each beam of sunlight.

The new UNSW result, confirmed by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is almost 44% better than the previous record – made by Alta Devices of the USA, which reached 24% efficiency, but over a larger surface area of 800-cm2.

“This encouraging result shows that there are still advances to come in photovoltaics research to make solar cells even more efficient,” said Keevers. “Extracting more energy from every beam of sunlight is critical to reducing the cost of electricity generated by solar cells as it lowers the investment needed, and delivering payback faster.”

What say you, folks?

I suppose it depends partly upon how it's presented, but I can't see myself getting too excited by any sort of VR experience that has a social component.

Exploring the world (solo)? Certainly.

Chatting-up strangers? Most definitely not.

Interesting question "As the possibility of a virtual reality room in every home becomes more likely as time goes on, this question is especially important for people who are introverted. Will virtual reality be embraced by introverts, or shunned? Will it enhance their relationships, or further isolate them from society?"___What say you, folks?

Electric cars were the talk of the Beijing Motor Show 2016, with several homegrown models attracting huge crowds. Here's our pick of the next generation of electric concept cars, some of which are almost production-ready, and others of which provide a glimpse into the far-flung future. Performance models like the BAIC Arcfox-7 secured the headlines, while the LeEco LeSee is, on paper at least, a car that could challenge the likes of Tesla.

Admittedly there's improvements on the efficiency to be made but, solar panels which can generate energy when it's sunny out raining are pretty clever.

Just the thing for certain parts of Wales (or the rest of the world) where on occasion it seems to rain as much as the sun shines.

So... I am a complete idiot.

After reaching level 30, it finally dawned on me that I've been using the Perk-tree all-wrong...

I was playing as if you had to had to have the previous-level's perk maxed-out before you could start another, which is why I only recently gained access to awesome perks like "Gun Nut 1".

Sigh 

I was so annoyed by this fact that I started another play-through last night and this time opted for "Gun Nut 1" as soon as I hit level two.  I think this is gonna change things up considerably.

Also, I decided that the damn settlements are on their own this time.  I'll get Sanctuary started, but am not going to be at their beck-and-call this time.   It's too much of a time-sink for my taste.

World’s largest concentrated solar plant switches on in the Sahara
Morocco has switched on what will be the world’s largest concentrated solar power plant.
The new site near the city of Ouarzazate could produce enough energy to power over one million homes by 2018 and reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 760,000 tons per year, according to the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) finance group.

The solar plant, called the Noor complex, uses concentrating solar power (CSP) which is more expensive to install than the widely used photovoltaic panels, but unlike them, enables the storage of energy for nights and cloudy days.

Mirrors focus the sun’s light and heat up a liquid, which, when mixed with water, reaches around 400 degree Celsius. The steam produced from this process drives a turbine and generates electrical power.

Mirrors focus the sun’s light and heat up a liquid, which, when mixed with water, reaches around 400 degree Celsius. The steam produced from this process drives a turbine and generates electrical power.

A cylinder full of salt is melted by the warmth from the mirrors during the day, and stays hot enough at night to provide up to three hours of power, according to World Bank, who partially financed construction of the plant through a $97 million loan from the Clean Technology Fund.
