Melbourne researchers have successfully created Australia's largest and most flexible solar cells, with the aid of a new printer located at CSIRO. The scientists are part of a collaboration between research and industry partners called the Victorian Organic Solar Cell Consortium VICOSC. This was achieved through the collaboration between The University of Melbourne and the Bio21 Institute, CSIRO, Monash University and industry partners including Bluescope Steel and security printing firm Innovia Security. In just three years the consortium has gone from making cells the size of a fingernail, to cells 10 centimetres square.
They are now able to print organic photovoltaic cells the size of an A3 sheet of paper. The consortium is now leading the world in the ability to print solar cells and using different printing technologies, but this is the beginning of the story. We're still developing the technologies, still developing the materials to enable us to print in a number of different ways for different applications. The new printer can roll out 10 metres of solar cells per minute, which is equivalent to producing one cell every two seconds. Using semiconducting inks, the researchers print the cells.
Straight onto paperthin flexible plastic or steel. So what we're looking at is, how can we use this technology in the short term, how can we print solar cells to enable advertising, can we put solar cells on to advertising material in shopping centres to drive an active display. So if somebody wants to advertise something with nice flashing lights then at the moment they drive that with batteries. In the longer term we see these materials being able to be coated on to buildings, into windows and on roofs to provide.
Power in a wide variety of locations and circumstances. As part of the consortium, graduate students working alongside scientists are involved in training and development programs to improve the technology in the long term. We're now right up there with the rest of the people in the world but we've also got a facility which is different. We now have a process through our collaboration where we take things from the very very beginning, from designing materials, from making devices in the lab scale right through the large scale printing, which is very very unusual in the world context.
Greenpeace Canada Installs Solar Panels on Oil Derrick
We're in the midst of a growing climate crisis. We need to transition away from highly polluting sources of carbon, like the tar sands and towards renewables. Luckily, here in Alberta we have the most solar and wind potential in the entire country. Solar technology is available here and now, and it's being utilized across the world. Alberta is only utilizing 1 of its solar potential. When an oil spill happens, it can ruin communities. It can damage our environment. When a solar spill happens, they just call it a nice day.
Largest renewable energy developer comes to Hawaii
We now have the largest renewable energy developer in the world settling into the islands. I'm Paula Akana. I'm Yunji de Nies. The impact on Hawaii's green energy will be DIRECT! KITV4's Catherine Cruz joins us with info on some large scale solar projects. The 2.4 billion dolllar deal between Sun Edison First Wind just closed yesterday. The green energy giant has five projects already in the pipeline here on Oahu and chances are you may not have heard much about them. Expect to see those big solar farms with thousands of solar panels.
Coming to a neighborhood near you. Flint Okahara 2 11 Mililani resident Basically if that brings the rates down I dont mind that would be good, cheaper for everybody in the islands, You can see large scale solar projects popping up across the country as communities move to wean them selves off fossil fuel. California is where one Wahiawa resident recalled seeing them. 436 442 Nestor Decierdo Wahiawa resident Larger flater areas like in the boonies or deserts.I never seen them close to the freeways before, UPPER.
2946 2953one of the largest solar farms will be in Central Oahu in Waipio just off the H2. It will cover more than 300 acres of land, Sun Edison First wind 's development director says some 200,000 solar panals will cover about a third of the land. 17 13 1721 The advantage of the large solar projects is that everyone on oahu benefits not just the homeowner who has a system on the roof The merger will see not just solar projects in Waipio, but Waiawa, Mililiani and Kawailoa on.
The North Shore. 27 52 2201 We are hoping there are economies of scale so we can get a beter price on panels racking and other equipment After seeing the First winds windmills on the north shore, some resident are wondering what a massive solar farm will do to view planes. 1223 12 ' I will be difficult to see nearby. You won't see it as you are driving by from the freeway You may be seeing it as you come in on the freeway from from Mililani You may be able.
To see it from far away but you won't see it up close, And there's one other side bar to solarand its sheep. yes you heard right sheep! Rwen Wescoatt 812 8 We will have ranchers who will be running sheep in the area and moving them around.That's really a dual benefit for energy project, the sheep keep the grass down, so the weeds dont get high that you shade the project and you wont get as much energy production, The promise of big savings, and a dual benefit as.
Solar moves into agricutural land that now lays fallow. To give you an idea of what to expect when it comes to sheep our cameras are set to take you to a sheep farm next week. If you're wondering why we are hearing about these big solar projects all of a sudden. The deadline for big federal tax credits expires at the end of next year, and the farms need to be up and running by then. So the race is on to get the necessary permits and approvals is on. Back.
ELA Electrical Inspections15 Point Panel Home Electrical SafetyArizona Electric Council
The electrical panel is basically the heartbeat of the home. Without it, nothing in the home electrically works. People sometimes neglect the heartbeat of their home for years, even decades without regular maintenance. Thank you for calling the Electric League of Arizona. Formed in 1991, the Arizona Electric Council recommends an annual 15Point Electrical Panel Inspection and every 5 years, The Whole Home Electrical Safety Inspection. I've been an Electricians for 15 years. George Robbins shows us some key parts of that 15point inspection inside and out. I love my job. I love seeing people everyday, different situations everyday.
Outside the inspection includes checking grounding, wires, breakers, and the panel itself. Also, ensure the panel is free from obstructions, exposed wires, rust, and water leakage. So, how long has the outlet not worked Then there's the inside. 10 years! Inside the checkup ensures outlets and smoke detectors are working correctly. It's very rewarding, especially when somebody is in a panic because they have a situation in their home, and you come, and you fix it for them. It puts a smile and puts them at ease to know that they are safe. Power outages,.
Student awards at Arkansas Idea Network of Biomedical Research Excellence Academic Spotlight
At Missouri State University, students often have the opportunity to conduct research and present the findings. Two MSU students recently received awards for their presentations at the Arkansas Idea Network of Biomedical Research Excellence conference. At the conference, college students from Arkansas and surrounding states had the opportunity to present their research in biological science, physics and chemistry, and see the research of their peers. James Hansen, a senior physics major, won 2nd place in the physics category for his oral presentation on grapheme which could improve the efficiency of the solar cell and.
