In April NREL
reported progress on a different solar coating, involving a perovskite ink with a longer processing window that it suggests would allow for the scalable production of perovskite thin films for high-efficiency solar cells.
and SoCal Gas will be leveraging the large-scale hydrogen system capabilities at the ESIF to accelerate the commercialization and deployment of a power-to-renewable-hydrogen-to- -natural-gas," said Kevin Harrison, Senior Engineer at NREL
Beard and other NREL
scientists in 2011 published a paper in Science that showed for the first time how MEG allowed a solar cell to exceed 100 percent quantum efficiency by producing more electrons in the electrical current than the amount of photons entering the solar cell.
In the case of NREL
, the key is finding a partner for the power purchase agreement (PPA) for the PV panels/system (a separate contract without any first cost to the owner) in order to make the project feasible financially.
I am pleased that NREL
can now show visitors how they are achieving their commitment to renewable energy.
employs a systems integration approach designed to accelerate the transformation of U.
The university and NREL
showed that thin-film solar cells less than one-micron thick can be removed from a silicon substrate used for fabrication by dipping them in water at room temperature.
This cooling system, together with innovative data centre design, is expected to result in the NREL
facility becoming the world's most efficient data centre, with a power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.
In late June, NREL
signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with German researchers from the Research Center Julich, the Helmholtz Center Berlin and the German Aerospace Center to jointly develop new thin film-based materials for more efficient solar cells.
As such, DOE/NREL
felt a sense of urgency about maximizing the energy efficiency of the buildings on the NREL
Companies interested in applying for the DOE grants had a variety of reasons for wanting NREL
on their team.
From the total assigned to the NREL
, $68 million is for an energy efficient office building, $19.
