  • Record sales for solar PV cells in 2009

    Manufacturers of solar PV cells produced 10,700 MW of product around the world in 2009, setting a new record, according to a recent Eco-Economy Indicators Report by the Earth Policy Institute (Washington, DC). The 10,700 MW represented a 51% increase over 2008 production levels—less than the dramatic 89% growth in 2008 but still continuing the rapid industry growth since 2004. As ...

  • Green supply chain management: the development of supply chain carbon maps

    In recent times, environmental thinking has become a prominent feature in the design of supply chain networks leading to the concepts of low carbon supply chains and green supply chain management. Understanding the sources and levels of emissions within the supply chain is the first step needed to fully design a low carbon supply chain. This paper helps to develop the concept of supply chain ...

  • Novel fabrication technologies of 1D TiO

    nanotubes, vertical tin and iron–based nanowires for Li–ion microbatteries

    We present the combination of anodisation, sputtering and electrodeposition processes as a novel technology to fabricate nanoarchitectured materials. Titania nanotubes are successfully fabricated using Ti foils and Ti film on Si wafers; by simply varying the anodisation parameters a 600–900 nm range of tube length and a 50–150 nm range of tube diameter can be obtained. Iron and tin oxides ...

  • Solar`s Time to Rise and Shine.

    Photovoltaic efficiency records are being shattered, thanks to recent advances in materials science. Last month, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo., loaded a postage stamp–sized solar cell onto a tray and placed it under a high-intensity pulse solar simulator. The simulator flashed a 2.5 millisecond pulse of light, and 19 mirrors reflected the ...
