Green hydrogen, power generation tech based on compressed air storage, solid-oxide electrolysis cells

Scientists in Korea have developed a compressed air storage system that can be used as a combined cooling, heat, and power system and provide heat and power to solid-oxide electrolysis cells for hydrogen generation. It showed an overall roundtrip efficiency of 121.2% and over-unity efficiencies in the range of 100% to 120%.

Canada’s SPARQ Systems enters PV microinverters partnership with Jio

Canada-based microinverter company SPARQ Systems has entered into a partnership agreement with JioThings, a fully owned subsidiary of Jio Platforms Ltd. of Reliance Industries, to supply the Indian conglomerate with PV microinverters.

Subsea pumped hydro for utility scale storage at deepwater

Researchers in Norway have investigated the technical potential of implementing subsea pumped hydro storage at water depth not exceeding 2,000 m. They also identified potential locations for these storage systems based on energy density.

Lithos technology reduces water use in lithium extraction

Lithos applied for a $30 million DOE grant, which will help increase the facility’s capacity to sustainably process lithium hydroxide.


New CIGS solar cell design with antimony trisulfide promises 31.15% efficiency

The novel solar cell uses antimony trisulfide (Sb2S3) as the back surface field (BSF) layer. According to its creators, this layer can be included in conventional CIGS solar cells to improve their efficiency and reduce the absorber material’s cost.

Photovoltaics for wastewater disinfection

Researchers in Spain have developed a new system that simultaneously produces PV power and disinfects wastewater.
