New Quantum Well Solar Cell Just Set a World Record For Efficiency

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, satellites, solar power, sustainability

“there’s a new record to report: a new solar cell has hit 39.5 percent efficiency ”.

Scientists keep on pushing the efficiency of solar panels higher and higher, and there’s a new record to report: a new solar cell has hit 39.5 percent efficiency under the standard 1-sun global illumination conditions.

That 1-sun marker is simply a standardized way of measuring a fixed amount of sunlight, and almost 40 percent of that radiation can now be converted into electricity. The previous record for this type of solar panel material was 39.2 percent efficiency.

Renault’s first hydrogen-powered EV will drive 500 miles per charge

Posted by in categories: economics, sustainability, transportation

French car manufacturer Renault Group unveiled their novel Scénic Vision concept car that is powered by a battery that runs on hydrogen at the ChangeNOW summit.

The French carmaker will relaunch its popular Sc é nic model as an electric vehicle in 2024 and aims to add a hydrogen power source to it by 2030.

This new model is part of Renault’s sustainability strategy, and with the launch of the Renaulution strategic plan, Renault Group and its brands have embarked on a major transformation, moving from a race for volume to the creation of economic, environmental, and social value, with the aim of becoming carbon neutral in Europe by 2040 and worldwide by 2050.

Fast-growing Austin-area motor maker Infinitum Electric looks to jump into EV market

Posted by in categories: business, finance, sustainability, transportation

Round Rock-based motor company Infinitum Electric is expanding as it steps up production and breaks into the electric vehicle business.

The company is growing its footprint and workforce on the back of an $80 million funding round, which it announced this week. The financial infusion brings the company’s funding to date to $135 million.

Infinitum Electric was founded in 2016 in Austin by CEO Ben Schuler and moved to Round Rock in 2019. The motors include circuit boards that cut down on some of the costly equipment required in traditional motors, making Infinitum’s motors more efficient, smaller and quieter than traditional motors, according to the company.

Scientists discover ‘ghost’ fossils beneath a microscope

Posted by in categories: climatology, sustainability

The unexpected discovery of “ghost” fossils belonging to tiny, ancient organisms could provide insights about how life reacts to climate change in Earth’s oceans.

Looking through a powerful microscope, researchers were stunned to see the impressions left by single-celled plankton, or fossilized nannoplankton, that lived millions of years ago – especially since they were analyzing something else.

A study detailing the findings published Thursday in the journal Science.
