Silicon-based Multijunction Solar Cell Reaches Record Efficiency of 36.1 Percent

22.02.2024

Aenert. Research Laboratory newsSolar cells and solar panels are commonly used to harness the energy of the sun and convert it to electricity in an environmentally-friendly manner. However, despite their widespread application their photovoltaic energy conversion efficiency is more or less limited to 29.4 percent. To somewhat improve this limitation, they can be coated with additional materials to...

Solar cell efficiency 2023

19.02.2024

Aenert news. Technological innovationsIncreasing the efficiency of solar cells is one of the most pressing problems in solar energy. Despite the rapid development of renewable energy, it can still provide only about half of new energy needs on a global scale. The low efficiency of wind turbines and solar panels does not allow achieving a power utilization factor comparable to that of fossil fuel energy...

Aenert news. Energy CompaniesSolar photovoltaics today represents the most dynamically developing area of renewable energy. In several countries of the world, including, for example, Chile, Australia, Hungary, Spain, the level of solar electricity generation exceeds 10% of its total volume. No one is surprised by solar photovoltaic stations with a capacity of more than one GW. At the same time,...

A Closer Look at solar photovoltaics

27.11.2023

Aenert news. Energy TrendsPhotovoltaics is one of the most dynamically developing sectors of renewable energy. In 2022, the total installed photovoltaic capacity significantly exceeded 1000 GW. A year earlier, the share of solar photovoltaics in global electricity generation from all sources reached 3.8%. Ten years ago this was hard to believe, since at that time this share did not exceed...

New Method of Solar-thermal Hydrogen Production

02.10.2023

Aenert. Research Laboratory newsOne of the most powerful sources of energy is the sun. Its rays can be captured and converted to create electricity or power processes to produce fuels which offer an alternative to hydrocarbon-derived fuels. One such fuel which can be harnessed with the help of sunlight is hydrogen. To do so, photoelectrochemical methods are often employed. Currently, photo...
