Monolithic perovskite/silicon tandem solar cell with >29% efficiency

Monolithic perovskite/silicon tandem solar cell with >29% efficiency by enhanced hole extraction Efficiency from hole-selective contacts Perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells must stabilize a perovskite material with a wide bandgap and also maintain efficient charge carrier transport. Al-Ashouri et al. stabilized a perovskite with a 1.68–electron volt bandgap with a self-assembled monolayer that acted as an efficient hole-selective […]

Fledgling Solar Technology Promising Output Gains Raises $2.5M

SunDensity, a solar photonics startup, says its technology boosts module output by 20 percent. SunDensity, a solar startup promising 20 percent power output gains* due to specially coated glass, raised $2.5 million in initial financing to begin commercializing its product. If commercially successful, the technology could measurably increase the output of solar panels, reducing the […]

Tandem PV Secures a Rare Fund Raise for Perovskite Solar

A Silicon Valley startup wants to pair newfangled materials with silicon cells to create a higher-efficiency module. Silicon Valley-based Tandem PV closed a $2.4 million seed round in February to commercialize an exotic new solar technology. The startup is developing perovskite solar materials, which it will layer on top of conventional silicon cells to make […]

Trump Administration Cuts Clean Energy Programs Again in 2020 Budget Request

The proposal zeroes out the DOE loan program and ARPA-E budget. An official said funding will focus on “basic science” and clean energy technologies “that make sense to us.” The Trump administration’s budget for fiscal year 2020 again proposes eliminating programs that fund renewable energy, including the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy and the Department of […]
