Two square metres (around 22 square feet) of the new solar cells would generate about as much electricity as a standard solar panel, according to the latest study -- roughly 140 watts per meter, if tinted to the same degree as current glazed commercial windows.
The semi-transparent cells have a conversion efficiency of 17 pct while still transmitting more than 10 pct of the incoming light.
The new cells replace a key solar cell component (Spiro-OMeTAD) with a specially developed polymer, based on an organic semiconductor, which increases overall stability.

PERFORM teams will design risk scores that communicate the delivery risk of an asset's offer, such as the reliability of electricity from a solar plant due to the weather on a given day. They will also develop grid management systems that internally capture uncertainty and evaluate the system risk to meet or exceed a set baseline. This risk-driven paradigm will enable grid operators to better maintain a supply-demand balance and system reliability, even with the intermittency of renewables. In turn, they can optimally manage the system and assess the true value of essential reliability services in real time, allowing for a more diverse energy mix.

Allegheny College's Board of Trustees established a climate action plan in 2010 that in part aimed to become a carbon-neutral institution by 2020.To that end, the school
increased its energy efficiency by nearly 20 pct through retrofitting existing infrastructure, making system and behavioral changes, and opting for sustainable construction and renovation.
It also shifted from fossil fuel-based energy sources to alternative energy sources by installing geothermal heating and cooling systems in four buildings, generating 8,500 kilowatt-hours of solar energy annually and by only buying energy from wind-generated sources.
It offset remaining emissions by investing in projects that Allegheny College faculty and students are involved in, including, for example, a methane-capture project at a dairy farm.

The program incorporates NASA satellite data into an desktop software program called RETScreen Expert. RETScreen , a clean energy management software program developed by the Canadian government in collaboration with several international partners, including NASA.
Most of the environmental parameters -- like temperature, humidity, and winds -- included in the RETScreen project is developed by NASA's Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO). Based at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., its computer model and data assimilation techniques enhance NASA Earth observations from more than 20 NASA satellites and missions.
However, the key data parameter, solar irradiance, provides a long-term record of daily averaged solar variability up to within about a week of real time. This solar variability replicates ground-based measurements very well and can be used to do things like monitor solar photovoltaic panel performance and place solar panels for optimal exposure to sunlight.
Wind resources are also incorporated into the POWER models and have important uses for energy efficiency analysis, such as helping to better calculate heat losses from buildings.

The report also takes a closer look at the diverse investors involved in wind energy financing. Banks play an increasing role extending over €20 billion of non-recourse debt in 2019. Non-recourse debt accounts for 49 pct of all investment in new onshore wind projects and 77 pct in new offshore wind farms.
