Today’s fast-paced retail environment requires innovative digital solutions without compromising sustainability. Pricer, a leading Swedish supplier of shelf edge automation and communication solutions, will explore the possibilities of a new generation of advanced electronic shelf labels (ESL) making them self-powered through light in partnership with Epishine (Linköping, Sweden).
An ultrathin protective coating proves sufficient to protect a perovskite solar cell from the harmful effects of space and harden it against environmental factors on Earth, according to newly published research from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
For the development of next-generation, high-performance solar cells and modules, Meyer Burger Technology AG (Thun, Switzerland) has brought renowned partners on board and signed corresponding multi-year cooperation agreements. Together with CSEM from Switzerland, Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in Freiburg, and the Institute of Photovoltaics at the University of Stuttgart, the company is working on the industrialisation of perovskite tandem technology, which is expected to allow the industrial production of solar cells with efficiencies in excess of 30 percent in the future.
