A New Adaptive Material Could Halve the Cost of Solar Power

By Jamie Condliffe   Solar power is one of the most reliable forms of renewable power—but it’s still expensive. Now, a team has developed a smart, adaptive material that could slash the its cost in half. Developed by start-up Glint Photonics, the new material has optical properties that can change to help it capture as […]

Solar Panel Made with Ion Cannon Cheap Enough to Challenge Fossil Fuels

Twin Creeks, a solar power startup that emerged from hiding today, has developed a way of creating photovoltaic cells that are half the price of today’s cheapest cells, and thus within reach of challenging the fossil fuel hegemony. The best bit: Twin Creeks’ photovoltaic cells are created using a hydrogen ion particle accelerator. As it […]
