We have upscaled stainless steel based dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) from small, 0.32 cm2 active area laboratory sized test cells to 6 cm x 6 cm large area ”minimodule”. This is a continuation to our [...]
Among the various solar energy application technologies, the photovoltaic technology is, in particular, the most desirable technology for large-scale applications due to the fact that the solar energy in optical form is directly transformed into [...]

This paper introduces a solar thermal system that can be used for industrial applications to generate low pressure steam, to drive an absorption chiller, or both. Steinway & Sons is installing thirty-eight tracking parabolic trough [...]
The plant is designed to combine photovoltaic (PV) and thermo-solar (TS) electric generation. In particular, the starting point is the use of cooled photovoltaic modules. Cooling enhances the photovoltaic module efficiency, and the cooling fluid [...]
In order to understand mechanism of electron transfer in dye-sensitized solar cell based on organic-inorganic junction we have studied the role of vibronic perturbations in metal-to-ligand and ligand-to-ligand charge transfer states excitations and in electron [...]

The main purpose of this work is to demonstrate the possibility of fabrication of SC and solar modules based on SIS structures using spray pyrolisis technique. Thin films, deposited at 450oC on the nSi crystals [...]
BACKGROUNG&OBJECTIVES This project is to demonstrate and develop new potential source of natural energy (electricity) by photosynthesis, and directly from living plant. METHOD The electricity capacity will be evaluated based on various plants nature, and [...]
A new innovation technology includes Multi Solar Air Conditioning system using the Multi Solar (PV/T) Collectors System and an Air conditioning unit that using the excessive solar thermal energy produced by the Multi Solar System [...]
In this paper, a new energy harvesting method based on Knudsen compressor is proposed. We first study the possibility of Knudsen compressor working in near atmosphere pressure by Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method which [...]
This paper presents the dimensioning of a photovoltaic pumping system with concentrator type V (SBFV) for irrigation of a culture in the semi-arid area of the Northeast of Brazil. The elaboration, an analysis of the [...]
A new configuration of a 1-10 W micro-thermophotovoltaic (micro-TPV) device with a heat-recirculating micro-emitter is studied experimentally and computationally. In the micro-TPV device thermal energy is directly converted into electrical energy through thermal radiation without [...]
