Solar panels for a more sustainable power management

Solar panels for a more sustainable power management
Thermo King has expanded its ThermoLite solar panels portfolio with a 110W model designed to provide a sustainable power management solution for reefer units while reducing their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. In low light, Thermo King’s solar panels collect energy to keep the refrigeration unit’s battery fully charged. This eliminates the need to use the engine to charge the battery and reduces fuel consumption by up to 23% and CO2 emissions by 560kg.

Screen-printing process for efficient n-PERT solar cells

Screen-printing process for efficient n-PERT solar cells
Imec, within the partnership of EnergyVille, has announced that it has realised highly efficient n-PERT (Passivated Emitter and Rear Totally diffused) solar cells using an industry-compatible screen-printing process. Together with Jolywood, imec developed industry-compatible bifacial cells with an average front-side conversion efficiency of 21.9%. Based on this process, imec also demonstrated screen-printed monofacial n-PERT cells with a conversion efficiency up to 22.8%.

Researchers prove assumptions in solar cell production

Researchers prove assumptions in solar cell production
Research led by the University of Luxembourg investigated the manufacturing process of solar cells. The researchers proved that assumptions on chemical processes that were common place among researchers and producers for the past 20 years are, in fact, inaccurate. The physicists published their findings in the renowned scientific journal Nature Communications.
