  • Green Acres, the largest solar farm in Western Canada

    Hutterite colony invests in solar for business reasons You’ve seen them before, though they don’t tend to stand out. Hutterites—women in bright coloured, identical dresses and men in somber, dark jackets and hats. They’re almost always at the farmer’s market on a Saturday morning selling fresh eggs, carrots and potatoes. ...

  • Dye–sensitised solar cells using TiO
    2
    nanoparticles: a review

    Over the past two decades, several research papers have been published on dye–sensitised solar cells ever since its conception was first reported in 1991. This paper discusses their basic principle, fabrication in the laboratory and developments, based on results reported in literature. The various factors which stand in favour and against their commercialisation and their characterisation by ...

  • Visible and solar light photocatalytic disinfection of bacteria by N-doped TiO2

    A water treatment system was developed based on a photocatalytic process, employing immobilized N-doped TiO2, which worked under solar radiation. Batch reactor studies were conducted using an immobilized and suspended form of N-doped TiO2. Activities of Degussa P-25 and N-doped TiO2 were compared. Optimization of catalyst concentration was also carried out. Reaction rates ...

    film on the photoelectrode of dye–sensitised solar cells

    In this study, we used a citrate reduction method and electrophoretic deposition (EPD) to prepare hybrid nanocrystalline TiO2/Au films and applied it to the photoelectrode of dye–sensitised solar cell. The films and solar cells were investigated by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE–SEM), energy dispersive X–ray analysis (EDX), X–ray diffraction (XRD), I–V ...

  • Solar Energy and Power Importance

    Have you ever wondered why solar energy or power is important? You are not alone in this because it is the common question of all. Before we can understand why solar energy is important we should have a good idea of what solar energy is. Solar energy is produced by the sun. It can be harnessed like any other type of energy and used to ...

  • 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 ...

    solar cells

    CuInS2 (CIS) films were deposited on In2S3/TiO2/FTO/glass under air by spray pyrolysis, resulting in superstrate–structured solar cells. We found a significant difference of images between scanning electron microscope and optical microscope, which suggests ...

  • Transparent conducting oxides superstrate for thin film solar cells: an industrial prospective

    The demand for a TCO coated glass substrate as a base material and front electrode of the solar cells is expected to grow very strongly in the next few years. Therefore it is crucial to prepare the industrial tools and proper glass compositions to meet this very impressive demand. Mass production of extra clear glass and atmospheric pressure thermal CVD tool installed directly on the float glass ...

  • Optimum performance solar cells using atmospheric pressure chemical vapour deposition deposited TCOs

    High performance transparent conducting oxides (TCOs), have significance for optimising PV performance. We have developed an advanced atmospheric pressure chemical vapour deposition process, by applying fast experimentation and using a combinatorial chemistry approach to aid the studies. The deposited films were characterised for crystallinity, morphology (roughness), haze and resistivity to aid ...

  • Visible light-operated glucose-O2 biofuel cell

    Visible light-operated glucose-O2 biofuel cell consisting of chlorin-e6 metal complexes (MChl?e6, M = H2 and Zn) adsorbed on TiO2 coated onto Optical Transparent conductive glass Electrode (OTE) as an anode, platinum electrode as a cathode, and the solution containing glucose, Glucose Dehydrogenase and NAD+ as a fuel is studied. The cells using H2Chl-e6 and Zn Chl-e6 adsorbed on TiO2 coated OTEs ...
