Sono Motors GmbH (Munich, Germany), the company pioneering solar-powered mobility, will participate for the first time as an exhibitor at IAA Transportation 2022 in Hanover. From 19 - 25 September, the solar mobility OEM will present its proprietary solar technology as well as several solar integrated prototypes of commercial vehicles to a broad public.
First Solar, Inc. (Tempe, Arizona) has issued its 2022 Sustainability Report highlighting its continued, industry-leading environmental, social, and governance (ESG) progress. The only US-headquartered company among the world’s ten largest solar manufacturers, First Solar’s photovoltaic (PV) solar modules are reported to have the lowest carbon and water footprint and fastest energy payback time of any commercially available PV technology today.
For the first time, an efficiency of 30% for perovskite-on-silicon-tandem solar cells has been exceeded thanks to a joint effort led by scientists at EPFL’s Photovoltaics and Thin Film Electronics Laboratory in partnership with the renowned innovation centre, CSEM (Neuchâtel, Switzerland). Independently certified by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the United States, these results are a boost to high-efficiency photovoltaics (PV) and pave the way toward even more competitive solar electricity generation.
