A new versatile measurement system devised by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) accurately and quickly measures the electric power output of solar energy devices, capabilities useful to researchers and manufacturers working to develop and make next-generation solar energy cells.
The First Russian/German Innovation Forum, "Energy 2020: Ideas, Technologies and Services", held recently in Moscow, catered entirely to the plans of both countries to intensify collaboration in the field of sustainable building.
In the context of its 7th annual 'Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development,' the European Union has approved funding in excess of 10 million Euros for the thin film solar cell project 'Scalenano' through 2015.
Whether your electric vehicle has two or four wheels, the chances are that it runs on a lithium-ion battery. LMU researchers have developed a more efficient matrix for storing electrical energy, based on a novel lithium titanate nanostructure.
