solar energy

Trees or solar panels - which strategy wins in dealing with the climate crisis?
The simplicity of the production of solar cells made of perovskites allows them to be integrated over silicon solar cells, thus achieving a significant improvement in the utilization of solar energy and speeding up their application in the production of green energy
Researchers have demonstrated an innovative method for producing flexible solar cells from silicon (silicon) that are twenty-four percent more efficient than the cells known today and can still be rolled like a sheet of paper * The findings could allow the use of solar cells in applications that today use more expensive alternatives of thin surfaces.
Opinion: The large power outage we experienced at the beginning of the month may be a preview of what is to come for the Israeli electricity sector with the increase in the frequency of heat waves due to the worsening of the climate crisis. The solutions are in our hands, now we just need to implement them, if we don't change direction, these power outages will only increase
Researchers have created a metallic sponge that increases light energy and can adsorb substances to it
The system allows for the installation of a solar field above shade-sensitive crops - at high density * The development was presented at the international Agri-Voltay conference SunnySide APV SUMMIT 2023 initiated by the Miguel Research Institute from Israel and the Fernhofer Institute from Germany and in cooperation with the government ministries
The new development will reduce the cost of energy per kWh in Israel by 75%; covering half of the greenhouses in Israel with the new cell will produce electricity that will exceed the national goal set for 2050
The Ministries of Energy and Agriculture are launching a first-of-its-kind program to optimize the use of agricultural land and integrate clean electricity production, accompanied by research to examine the effects on agricultural production. According to estimates, this is a total area of ​​about 2,000 dunams
An American school used profits from placing solar panels on the building's roof and energy efficiency to raise teachers' salaries. Coming Soon? Ask your local authority
Innovative methods of optimization, which make it possible to "smooth out" the fluctuations in renewable energy production by shifting the load in the network according to consumption. Said energy is stored during hours of low consumption, and when needed electric power is "injected" into the grid
On the laboratory table: a combination of two types of nanomaterials, with different optical properties
Renewable energy, its storage and conversion are necessary in dealing with climate change and for energy independence
The research will include technologies that will measure the effect of shading and the installation methods of the solar panels on the development of the plants, growth rate, susceptibility to diseases, protection against Hamsin, saving water consumption, the quantity and quality of the crop
This discovery is an important step in understanding the mechanisms that allow perovskite nanoparticles to heal themselves and paves the way for the integration of these materials in solar cells and other electronic devices.
In the competition organized by the European Union, prizes were awarded to exceptional green construction projects, in the spirit of the principles of the Bauhaus style. When will we see such buildings in Israel as well?
Says Lior Handelsman who is one of the five founders of the company. According to him, the company's chips are installed in millions of energy management systems, including energy storage. "The research and development done at Solaredge helped the breakthrough in the field of solar energy"
What is renewable energy and what is degradable energy? What are the origins of one and what are the origins of the other? How are energy sources usually sorted and how can they be divided differently?
This, after last year, the company announced its commitment to fighting global warming and reducing its carbon footprint through existing goals, which it plans to achieve by 2030
German and American researchers looked at what makes people install solar panels on their homes and found that if your neighbor has panels, it's likely that you will too. Does this logic also stand the test of the Israeli bureaucracy?
Provoskite, a semi-conducting material recently discovered by Prof. Lioz Etgar and his team from the Hebrew University as being very effective in absorbing sunlight, and its refinement may lead to dramatic changes in the global use of solar energy,
