  • At this moment, it looks like c-Si has a huge lead over thin films and it does not appear as if thin films is gaining at all, in fact it has been losing market share last few years...

    What are the members' thoughts on the future of thin films in the solar sector? Especially CdTe or CIS/CIGS?

  • Tokelau islands, a territory of New Zealand consisting of three atolls, has become the world’s first nation to get all of its electricity from solar power.

    Before making the switch to solar, the territory — with a population of about 1,500 people — was entirely dependent on diesel for their electricity generation.

    Diesel, apart from being environmentally unfriendly, also cost the islands, which lie about halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii, around NZ$1.0 million ($825,000) a year.

    This change to renewables would allow Tokelau to switch money from fuel purchases to social welfare projects.

    For Tokelau, this milestone is of huge importance for their continued well-being.

    New Zealand spent $7 million on the solar project.

    Sure, it might seem like a minor feat with only 1,500 people living on the islands — about the size of tiny town. But consider this: how many towns with small populations can say they are 100 percent solar?

      This in fact is an example of things to come...the first groups to switch to solar will be those who are already paying a much higher price than solar power for their electricity. One example is power from diesel, which can cost at least twice as much as solar at current prices, and could be easily three times the power price from solar with increasing diesel prices and decreasing costs of solar

      It sure is interesting as this means energy conscious greenhouses and ofcourse self sustaining (hopefully) :)

      Hi Kyzyl...good to see you after a long time...hope you are doing well... Now, to answer ur question...both articles appear to be dated (at least 5 years old)...has anything happened on the fuel cells and the biofuels mentioned in the respective articles? I dont think fuel cells in cars have gone much ahead and biofuels efforts in cars seem to have stalled quite much last one year What do you think? And thanks again for reappearing...I myself had not been on CleanTick for a while, and in the meantime, I see a lot of trolls and spammers populating this network...will get all these cleaned up soonest

  • Faced with plummeting prices for photovoltaic modules, General Electric has stopped work on what was to be the U.S.’s largest solar factory to return to the lab to retool the cadmium-telluride thin-film technology it aims to sell to developers of solar power plants. “Over the last six months with all the [...] - http://www.forbes.com/sites/toddwoody/2012/07/03/ge-halts-work-on-the-u-s-s-biggest-solar-factory-to-return-to-the-lab/

  • One solar unit depending on its output capacity and its durability dictates the price it will command. mostly, solar systems are highly utilized in ares that are not connected with electricity or by organizations that wants to turn to green energy solution to cut their operational costs.the liming factor that has impaired the growth of solar market is the inability of solar energy to support industrial operation. it therefore crucial to develop products that support the needs of industrial sector as well as those that can be used for domestic purposes.
