Innovalight has achieved new record
of 19 percent conversion efficiency with silicon ink processed solar
cells. Conversion efficiency of solar cells is the proportion of
sunlight energy that cells convert into electrical energy.
According to Louisiana
Tech University, the technology is based on new voltage regulation
circuits that can convert piezoelectric charges into usable voltage for
charging batteries or for directly powering electronics.
The first On-Line Electric Vehicle (OLEV) in the
world has kicked off in South Korea, specifically at the Seoul Zoo in
Gwacheon, Gyeonggi Province. The OLEV is the brainchild of the Korea
Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), where it will
receive all the juice required to get moving from an electric facility
underground without having to rely on surface power lines.
