Solar cells, Solar energy
Turkey's solar market has started 'teething' Turkey has started considering its own sources to generate electricity as a way to make it less dependent on fossil fuels, which account for 90% of the country’s current energy supply.
Power of the Sun. Dirt cheap In the late 1980s, the German-born chemist Michael Grätzel literally tied his name to an invention that is hailed as a revolution in renewable energy .
Global solar radiation map Renewable energy sources play an important role in securing future energy supply and mitigating climate change.
The Nano Laboratory Within the European Research Project Fiblys, they have therefore redesigned their microscope to a fully functional nano-laboratory.
Nano-tuned Solar Cells The sun has enough power to supply the whole earth with energy. But as long as renewable energy is more expensive than energy produced by coal or nuclear plants, solar energy won’t be first choice.
When will solar power become competitive? Competitive solar cells rely on climate, efficiency, material and production costs. The fluctuation of electricity prices from different sources and political climates both play a big part as well.
Harnessing Solar Energy One good way of helping the environment is to put what we call ‘solar panels’ onto the roofs of buildings. When the sun is shining these panels trap the rays and turn it into electricity and heat.
