Solar Glass

Innovation promises cheaper solar cell glass manufacturing

Indian scientists have developed a hybrid production method combining metal mesh and a metal-oxide layer over a glass substrate which they say brings down production cost by 80% compared to the tin-doped, indium oxide-based technology currently in use.

Assessing the impact of micro-cracks in solar glass

A Turkish research team has analyzed how big changes in temperature can affect absorbance, light transmittance and reflectivity in two types of solar glass. The scientists demonstrated lower efficiency in solar cells and the glass itself were attributable to a large number of micro-cracks and deformations on the glass surface.

Borosil Glass Works’ solar business consolidation likely to wrap up soon

Borosil Glass Works plans to consolidate its solar business by amalgamating Gujarat Borosil, Vyline Glass and Fennel Investments, while simultaneously demerging its consumer and scientific glassware business. Post restructuring, Borosil Glass Works will be renamed as Borosil Renewables.
