New ultralow-power circuit improves efficiency of energy harvesting to more than 80 percent

solar-powered sensors

The latest buzz in the information technology industry regards “the Internet of things” — the idea that vehicles, appliances, civil-engineering structures, manufacturing equipment, and even livestock would have their own embedded sensors that report information directly to networked servers, aiding with maintenance and the coordination of tasks. Realizing that vision, however, will require extremely low-power […]

Solar-powered LED lighting for Northern regions

solar-powered LED lighting

At first glance, the best approach to make a solar powered outdoor lighting product work at winter in the far North is to go for state-of-the-art components: photovoltaic panels, batteries and super effective LEDs. However, the heart of the systems is actually what binds these components together: the power supply and the battery management system. […]

Efficiency record for black silicon solar cells jumps to 22.1%

black silicon solar cell

Aalto University’s researchers have obtained the record-breaking efficiency of 22.1% on nanostructured silicon solar cells as certified by Fraunhofer ISE CalLab. An almost 4% absolute increase to their previous record is achieved by applying a thin passivating film on the nanostructures by Atomic Layer Deposition, and by integrating all metal contacts on the back side […]

This solar-powered floating farm will produce 20 tons of vegetables every day

solar-powered floating farm

Given the fact that a community that supports green technology also supports organic growing, it is evident that its members would design clean ways to produce healthy, organic food with as little impact on the environment possible. One such farm exists in Japan. Not only is it the world’s largest indoor farm, it produces 100 […]

GE uses holograms and the industrial internet to make wind farms more efficient

wind farm

Two new products that rely on data and the industrial internet will help GE make wind farms more efficient. The secret to generating more electricity from wind turbines may not rest in better blade designs but in better communication between those turbines and holograms, according to Steve Bolze, the president & CEO of GE’s Power […]

Solar power for the world’s largest tram network

solar-powered tram

Melbourne’s entire tram network could be powered by solar if the state government gave a bold renewable energy proposal the green light. While the pitch may conjure up images of trams with rooftop panels on them like the family home, the power would instead be generated at two new solar farms the project proponents plan […]
