As the SunShot Initiative works toward new solar energy cost targets for 2030, projects across the country are already working to make it faster, easier, and more affordable for Americans to go solar—from developing groundbreaking photovoltaic technology, to creating efficient manufacturing processes, to making solar energy available regardless of the weather or time of day.
The future of solar power is here! We know you’ve heard that a lot, and each time the text is bolder and headlines are louder. But physicist Sam Stranks is really onto something. Using a revolutionary material called hybrid perovskites to create more efficient solar cells that can create and store energy, the possibilities for
The sun’s rays can hit some roads for up to 90 percent of the daylight hours, so companies in Europe and the U.S. are experimenting with building solar panels along or above roads. But are such projects worth the cost? In France one company is hoping to distinguish itself—and reduce costs—with solar panels that are
Researchers have just found two new ways to make solar power more efficient. Could this solve our energy crisis?
