Troubled manufacturing-linked solar tender now reportedly oversubscribed

A new series of tweaks by the Solar Energy Corporation of India appear to have paid off, as the organization’s ambitious manufacturing-linked 7 GW solar tender has reportedly ended up oversubscribed by 1 GW.

New metallization tech to reduce microcracks in solar cells

A U.S. research group has developed a metal-carbon-nanotube composite – MetZilla – which can be embedded in commercial, screen-printable silver pastes and is said to reduce the formation of hotspots in solar modules and to prolong panel lifespan. The composite metal contacts are also ‘self-healing’ as they are able to regain electrical continuity after cycles of complete electrical failure caused by extreme strain.

New material for radiative cooling of solar panels

Spanish researchers have discovered a material said to offer radiative cooling and self-cleaning of devices which undergo critical heating during operation, such as PV panels. The thermal emitter enabled the scientists to lower the daytime temperature of silicon wafers by 14 degrees Celsius.
