The Sunrise project by Epishine (Linköping, Sweden) is the first of its kind to demonstrate an efficient production of innovative indoor solar cells for IoT applications. The Sunrise project has now received a grant of SEK 25 million from the EU's LIFE fund, which will contribute to developing Epishine's production of indoor solar cells further.

 

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) made a technological breakthrough and constructed a perovskite solar cell with the dual benefits of being both highly efficient and highly stable.

 

A team of researchers at North Carolina State University, working with organic photovoltaic cell (OPV) company NextGen Nano (London, UK), has demonstrated how adding semi-transparent organic solar cells (OSCs) to greenhouses allows growers to generate electricity and simultaneously cultivate lettuce, reducing greenhouse energy demands. The results will lay the groundwork for power generation in sustainable greenhouse cultivation.
