How Chlorine Stabilizes Next-Gen Solar Cells

How Chlorine Stabilizes Next-Gen Solar Cells

A team of researchers have imaged the atoms at the surface of the light-absorbing layer in a new type of next-generation solar cells, made from a crystal material called metal-halide perovskite. Their findings have solved a long-standing mystery in the field of solar power technology, showing how power-boosting and stability-enhancing chlorine is incorporated into the perovskite material.

UK Calls for Zero Global Shipping Emissions by 2050

UK Calls for Zero Global Shipping Emissions by 2050

Marking the start of the greenest London International Shipping Week yet, the UK backs a world-leading absolute zero target for international shipping emissions by 2050, as announced by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps. This target, which would need to be agreed through the International Maritime Organization, would be a significant increase of ambition for the sector, which is currently accountable for 3% of global emissions.

Carbon Capture & Utilization Can Enable Low-Carbon Concrete Production

Carbon Capture & Utilization Can Enable Low-Carbon Concrete Production

Concrete is the second most consumed substance on the planet, trailing only potable water. Cement production - an essential ingredient for concrete - alone contributes to 7% of global anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. As the world will see the building stock double in size by 2050, pressure for the cement industry to decarbonize has risen swiftly.

First Railway Station Upgrade in Europe to Use Photovoltaic Film

At only 3mm thick and 3kg per m2 the flexible solar panels are highly advanced from traditional 'glass like' panels and require no additional weight support. With an aesthetic finish that compliments the architectural design, the flexible panels are shatterproof and have a self-cleaning Teflon like top sheet- requiring no ongoing maintenance. The advanced technology also generates a higher energy yield in shadow and shading conditions.
