Comments Off on New hybrid solar cells generate 5 times as much energy by harnessing sun’s light and heat at the same time

Scientists have developed a new hybrid solar cell that harnesses the sun’s light and heat to create more energy than ever before , thanks to the pairing of a photovoltaic cell with polymer films. The resulting hybrid solar cell can produce as much as five times the voltage as existing technology. Although this type of solar cell is a great deal more expensive than others, the researchers behind the breakthrough are hopeful that consumers will find the increased solar energy production far outweights the higher cost.

Comments Off on GE’s new dome-shaped wind turbine generates more electricity

Perhaps the most interesting thing about technology of any kind is its ability to be adapted and improved. For wind turbines, GE ’s New ecoROTR  offers such an advancement. The addition looks like something out of a superhero movie—specifically, a certain shield-wielding Avenger comes to mind—and what it does for the wind turbine is equally super. The dome-shaped attachment allows this turbine to capture wind energy that is lost by standard turbines.
