Researchers efficiently charge a lithium-ion battery with solar cell
Researchers have wired four perovskite solar cells in series to enhance the voltage and directly photo-charged lithium batteries with 7.8 percent efficiency--the most efficient reported to date, the researchers believe.

Ultralight solar cells designed to drive drones
An ultrathin, flexible, stretchable and lightweight 'solar foil' has been produced from perovskite solar cells by researchers in Austria, who demonstrate the material's utility using solar powered miniature aircraft and blimps.

Solar cell that eliminates use of silver
Scientists have built an all-back-contact silicon heterojunction cell structure in which silver has been completely eliminated. It has been replaced by aluminum.

IDTechEx Launchpad offers global opportunity for startups
Prototypes to be displayed at the IDTechEx Show in Santa Clara.

Only conference on the full range of energy harvesting
Energy harvesting spans microwatts to megawatts because it is the creation of electricity where it is needed using wind, sun, movement, heat difference, friction and other ambient energy.
alt="Processed perovskite has superior stability"
Processed perovskite has superior stability
A new perovskite solar cell with 16% efficiency has been developed by researchers from Switzerland and China.
alt="Water-splitting project may boost clean power research"
Water-splitting project may boost clean power research
By smoothing the surface of the mineral hematite, a team of researchers achieved "unassisted" water-splitting, using the abundant rust-like mineral and silicon to capture and store solar hydrogen.
alt="A new material for transparent electronics"
A new material for transparent electronics
The performance of solar cells, flat panel displays, and other electronics are limited by today's materials. A new material, created by modifying a transparent insulating oxide, replacing up to 25 percent of the lanthanum ions in the host material with strontium ions, offers considerable promise.

Electric vehicle end game: self-powered, energy autonomous
The end-game with electric vehicles by land, water and air is for them to be self-powered. They will create all their electricity from ambient energy such as light, wind, waves and tide where necessary storing it until needed.
alt="Wireless, fully implantable device powered by body movement"
Wireless, fully implantable device powered by body movement
A blue glowing device the size of a peppercorn can activate neurons of the brain, spinal cord or limbs in mice and is powered wirelessly using the mouse's own body to transfer energy.
