JEDDAH: Solar-powered hybrid MEDAD spinoff, based at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), has won the Sustainability Medal 2020 for being an “Innovative Hybrid Solar Desalination Cycle.” The MEED Projects Awards ceremony that took place on 16 December 2020 in Dubai, UAE celebrates excellence in contribution to society and environment in different areas […]

Israeli Farms Become Test Ground for Solar Energy Project

KAUST researchers involved in raising bar for solar energy harvesting

JEDDAH : To increase the performance of solar panels, an international collaboration — including researchers from King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST) and U of T Engineering — has created a bifacial, or two-sided, tandem solar cell, built by bringing together the best of the perovskite and silicon technologies. Out in the field, […]

KAUST team develops high-efficiency, industry-ready perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells

Novel solar device tested in real-world conditions sets new efficiency limits in Nature Energy publication. JEDDAH : Perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells hold the promise of power conversion efficiencies well above the theoretical limit of silicon alone. But their outdoor performance in a hot and sunny climate has not been fully investigated — until now. A […]
