The fight over solar net metering in Nevada just got personal last Friday, with a proposed new amendment tacked on to the federal energy bill designed to protect solar customers from retroactive fees and other unexpected rate changes. In a speech on the Senate floor making his pitch for the amendment, Nevada Senator Harry Reid

EPFL tackles perovskite bottleneck...
Some solar industry observers have predicted that the cost of solar power will not continue to drop at its current rapid pace, but it's still going to keep dropping, and with that in mind let's take a look at a new breakthrough from EPFL, Switzerland's Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. It has concocted a perovskite

How low can solar go? We keep asking that question, and solar researchers keep coming up with new answers. In the latest cost-cutting development, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have come up with a relatively inexpensive, energy efficient process for manufacturing standard silicon solar cells without the use of an atomic

Here's a new twist on concentrating solar power: a complete CSP system that fits tidily into shipping containers for easy transportability. The new system is from a startup called Edisun Heliostats, which just made a very competitive cut to join the Energy Excelator umbrella. Located in Hawaii, the clean tech incubator is supported by the

A new molecular waterproofing technique to improve the humidity tolerance of new solar cell technology has been developed.

The cells, based on a compound known as perovskite, are cheaper to make than traditional silicon cells, but their use in real-world devices has long been limited by a reduced efficiency in humid conditions, such as exist in Australia.

However, researchers have now developed a water-resistant perovskite solar cell that can operate in a humid environment and maintain efficiency for longer.

Here's more good news for fuel cell electric vehicle fans: the California company HyperSolar, which has been developing a system for producing hydrogen with an assist from solar energy, has announced a new tweak that will help bump down the cost of its process. If all goes well the result will be a competitive price
