solar cells using quantum dots

New World Record set for Quantum Dots Solar Cells

Engineers made quantum dot solar cells that can be made into flexible, thin films, and generate electricity in low-light conditions. Thanks to a significant breakthrough at The University of Queensland, it might be possible for us to generate power on homes, cars, and phones with highly efficient flexible solar “skins.” The engineers have been studying […]

Wind Energy Goals

Quadrupling turbines, US can meet 2030 wind-energy goals

The United States could generate 20% of its electricity from wind within 10 years, without requiring any additional land, according to Cornell University research published in Nature Scientific Reports. “The United States currently produces about 7% of its electricity from wind energy,” said Sara Pryor, professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. “This […]
