BHEL expanded a 26 megawatts solar module manufacturing facility to a capacity of 200 megawatts. The company also commissioned a solar cell manufacturing assembly line with capacity of 105 megawatts.


Adani Enterprises recently won an initial approval to set up solar modules manufacturing facility in the western Indian state of Gujarat. According to recent media reports, Adani Enterprises is planning to set up manufacturing facility to produce polysilicon, wafers, solar Read more…


The team behind Solar Impulse 1, which flew across America in 5 legs beginning in San Francisco and ending in New York unveiled Solar Impulse 2 on Wednesday and aims to fly round the world beginning in March 2015. The Read more…


HyperSolar, which develops of a new technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, has announced that its artificial photosynthesis technology is now capable of producing 1.0 volt open circuit voltage for use in direct solar Read more…


Solar power is a renewable source of energy but still can be expensive to use so any cost reduction is good. Solar engineers from UNSW have developed an innovative method to dramatically improve the quality of low-grade silicon, promising to Read more…


Thin-film solar startup NuvoSun was recently acquired by Dow Chemical. Founded in 2008 by former MiaSole CEO Dave Pearce, NuvoSun designs PV cells and modules based on flexible Copper Indium/Gallium di- Selenide (CIGS) technology. NuvoSun owns at least two pending Read more…


A team of U.S. scientists says it has developed a class of biodegradable electronics technology that could be utilized for a wide range of products — from consumer devices to medical implants — and that ultimately would dissolve completely, leaving Read more…


As a writer, I depend on my 14 inch laptop and take it with me everywhere I go. However, lately I’ve become interested in greener alternatives when it comes to my electronics usage. That’s why I decided to invest in Read more…


Very few people ever considered the possibility of a plane being completely reliant on solar energy. Such a plane would remove the need for tons of oil, and it would heavily reduce the amount of air pollution caused by planes. Read more…


In the search for more efficient solar cells, UCLA researchers have developed a new transparent solar cell that points towards the age when windows could become small solar energy farms without blocking the view. They have developed a new kind Read more…


Discovering new materials to make cheaper and more efficient solar cells is the holy grail of the photovoltaic solar industry and recent news indicate that some significant steps in that direction are being taken. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Read more…


Another milestone for solar-charged travel was eclipsed last week when the solar-powered plane “Solar Impulse” landed in Morocco on June 5, 2012. The plane took off from Madrid and landed safely in Morocco after an amazing 19-hour flight over the Read more…


By adding microscopic folds onto the surface of photovoltaic materials, a design variation borrowed from a natural leaf, researchers say they have been able to boost the solar output of flexible plastic solar cells by 47 percent. According to the Read more…


The quest for more efficient solar cells is on. Currently the typical rate of conversion of sunlight into electricity is around 12% and in order to make solar power more competitive the industry works to increase this rate. The scientific Read more…
