Record-breaking solar flight reaches Hawaii
Endeavoring to reach Hawaii from Japan to encourage the use of clean technologies, the solar powered aircraft of Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg achieved the longest exploration leg of the Solar Impulse's Round-The-World mission.

IDTechEx Research addresses global megatrends
We are sometimes asked how we choose the topics in which we specialise. There are several answers but certainly we choose topics that overlap and address the major technological and societal megatrends of this century. Four particularly come to mind.
The Rise of Perovskite Solar Cells: Technology, Markets and Players
Pervoskite photovoltaics are a breath of fresh air in the photovoltaic market. They demonstrated a remarkable learning curve, going from 2.2% efficiency in 2006 to the latest record of 20.1% in 2014. They have already supressed OPVs and DSSCs and are now, at least in terms of efficiency, in the same range as leading thin film PVs like CdTe and CIGS. Perovskite solar cells are now an active area of research across many organisations. In this article we share with you slides highlighting our research. In particular, we seek to answer the following: 1- Introduction to perovskite technology including working principle, device fabrication and architecture 2- Material choices and production processes 3- Efficiency and technology roadmap 4- SWOT analysis 5- Cost analysis and detailed cost breakdown 6- Application/market roadmap 7- Ten-year segmented market projection 8- Future business opportunities • Ten-year market forecast and cost analysis • Application market roadmap • Business opportunities We hope that you find our analysis useful.

New nanogenerator harvests power from rolling tires
Researchers have developed a nanogenerator that harvests energy from a car's rolling tire friction.
alt="Solar energy generating noise barriers alongside highway"
Solar energy generating noise barriers alongside highway
Alongside the A2 highway near Den Bosch two test noise barriers are installed that generate solar energy.
alt="Hematite 're-growth' smoothes rough edges for clean energy harvest"
Hematite 're-growth' smoothes rough edges for clean energy harvest
Finding an efficient solar water splitting method to mine electron-rich hydrogen for clean power has been thwarted by the poor performance of hematite.
alt="Researchers stretch a thin crystal to get better solar cells"
Researchers stretch a thin crystal to get better solar cells
An interdisciplinary team has made a semiconductor crystal with a variable band gap.
alt="New microchip improves future of self-powered wearable technology"
New microchip improves future of self-powered wearable technology
Energy from your body heat and motion could fuel the future of preventative health care.
alt="Renewable energy from evaporating water"
Renewable energy from evaporating water
An immensely powerful yet invisible force pulls water from the earth to the top of the tallest redwood and delivers snow to the tops of the Himalayas. Yet despite the power of evaporating water, its potential to propel self-sufficient devices or produce electricity has remained largely untapped -- until now.
