Reshaping the solar spectrum to turn light into electricity: Infrared region of the sun's spectrum used to make solar cells more efficient

Reshaping the solar spectrum to turn light into electricity: Infrared region of the sun's spectrum used to make solar cells more efficient | MishMash | Scoop.it
Solar energy could be made cheaper if solar cells could be coaxed to generate more power. A huge gain in this direction has been made by a team of chemists that has found an ingenious way to make solar energy conversion more efficient. The researchers combined inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals with organic molecules to 'upconvert' photons in the visible and near-infrared regions of the solar spectrum.

Distributed Solar Power Revenues May More Than Triple in Decade

Distributed Solar Power Revenues May More Than Triple in Decade | MishMash | Scoop.it
Global revenues from distributed solar photovoltaic power are expected to more than triple in a decade as the technology becomes viable without subsidies, according to the industry analyst firm Navigant Research. Revenue from the installations, which are typically small-scale and deliver power to areas near the point of generation, is forecast to rise to $151.6 billion in 2024 from $40.6 billion last year, Navigant said in an e-mailed study.
