Orange Button Initiative To Set U.S. Solar Data Standards

The US Energy Department has announced nearly $4 million in funding for projects with a goal of setting data standards to assist the nation’s solar industry.

Currently, the solar sector in the USA relies on fragmented datasets released by various state energy departments and a limited number of private organizations in relation to project origination, grid integration, operations, and retirement.

New Perovskite-Silicon Tandem Solar Cell Efficiency Record

Researchers at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) have developed a perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell that has smashed the world record for conversion efficiency.

Scientists from PolyU’s Department of Electronic and Information Engineering used the novel solar material to create a hybrid solar cell with an efficiency of 25.5 percent – the highest level ever recorded.

Mozambique needs a community-driven approach to electrification

Mozambique is seeking to use renewable energy to extend electricity access to rural institutions Joshua Kirshner

Mozambique has one of Africa’s lowest electrification rates. The national grid reached just 23% of the population in 2012. Around 68% of Mozambicans live in widely dispersed rural areas making extending access to electricity difficult. The national grid infrastructure is extremely limited and increasingly struggling to cope with rising demand.

Around 80% of the country’s residents rely on biomass

Power to the people: renewable energy projects must be a collaborative effort

Renewable energy is finally a reality in South Africa’s electricity mix. The government’s renewable energy programme has procured 92 solar, wind, hydro and biomass projects. Some of these are already feeding into the national grid. Others meanwhile are in various stages of development.

Community renewables are not unique to South Africa. It is the country’s policies and frameworks that are

ARENA Funding More Solar And Storage Projects

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) announced yesterday it would be providing nearly $14 million in funding for solar/storage related projects worth a total of $44.8 million.

Among the projects is research and development of a low-cost, modular and expandable sodium-ion battery storage solution; which will be demonstrated at Illawarra
