A team of female high school engineering students at San Fernando High School have collaborated on the design of a solar powered tent to provide shelter for the homeless. The girls utilized insulated fabric and solar panels for their tent design, which also includes a safety locking system and a UV system to help sanitize it. […]

Scientists in Korea have claimed a new world record for the efficiency of the perovskite solar cell they have created in the lab. They think the breakthrough will contribute to a wider acceptance of PSC in the commercial world.
Dr Zhengrong Shi, known as the “Sun King”, is introducing a new flexible, lightweight solar panel to the Austrialian and Japanese markets.
Solar power may be able to create hydrogen from biomass at room temperature, which may open the door to a hydrogen economy.
Scientists are searching for ways are searching for answers to how to make better, more efficient, and less costly solar panels from natural sources. Could jellyfish be the answer to abundant solar power?
Giant Leap says its 3D printed Granite Glass will slash the cost of concentrated solar power and use only one tenth as much space. It may be to solar power what the jet engine was to the airplane.
Sam Stranks, a physicist at the University of Cambridge, thinks adding a perovskite layer to traditional solar panels could boost their efficiency by 20% or more, lowering the cost of solar power even further.
Researchers at VTT in Finland have created a 3D printed organic leaf that can harvest electricity from sunlight, wind, or temperature change.
ARENA and NREL both say that combining wind with solar power at the same location can significantly reduce the cost of renewable energy projects.
Kevala specialized in data collection that makes accurate grid maps available so solar developers can see where the least expensive and most efficient areas are to build solar power facilities.
