Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    Better Solar With New Science

    Space age solar solution moves toward production; A consortium of European research institutes has received €10.6 million in EU funding to establish pilot production of a high efficiency module concept developed by Swiss startup Insolight. The module combines high efficiency multijunction cells with a solar concentrator lens and has previously demonstrated 29% efficiency

    Mark Hutchins, September 4, 2019 (PV Magazine)

    “…[The European Union awarded €10.6 million to Hiperion consortium of 16 European research institutes and companies for] a pilot production line of a novel PV technology developed by Insolight, a Swiss startup spun out of the renowned École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne…[The four-year project will] demonstrate the technology can be produced cost effectively and integrated into crystalline silicon manufacturing…[The technology] is based on what it describes as ‘space-grade’ multijunction solar cells] mounted on a conventional silicon back plane…

    The module is topped with a layer of [1 square mm] optical lenses which concentrate sunlight onto the cells…[with a ‘microtracking’ process which moves] horizontally a few millimeters per day to keep the concentrated light beams aligned with the cells…[It] has demonstrated 29% module efficiency and cell efficiencies in the lab have been measured at 36%...[The concept] can be adopted as a standalone solar module or used as an additional layer on a module…[to allow it to] perform efficiently in cloudy conditions with little direct sunlight…[P]roduction lines can be adapted to [mass] produce modules incorporating Insolight’s technology…” click here for more
