The Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Rt Hon Philip Hammond MP has announced new £36 million UK Government funding to develop clean energy innovation at Swansea University. The new Active Building Centre will seek to remove barriers and accelerate market adoption of new solar-powered building design. Funded by the UK government […]
A research collaboration studying perovskite solar cells between the SPECIFIC IKC and Henan Key Laboratory of Photovoltaic Materials has been published in the Journal of Power Sources. The novel method developed represents an important step towards commercialisation of this exciting new technology.
Dr Matthew Davies and Dr Rhys Charles will be working together on ACCEPTED.
Humankind is on the brink of significant climate change and material resource shortages. We have reached the limits of our traditional ‘take-make-dispose’ linear economic models in which materials are extracted from the earth to create products which are discarded at the end of their useful lives.
The PV upscaling team at SPECIFIC has been working hard in the last year and finally their efforts have been recognised. Their paper, “All printable perovskite solar modules with 198 cm2 active area and over 6% efficiency” has been accepted in Advanced Materials Technologies and has been published online. A […]
Solar cells convert the ubiquitous power of the sun into electricity, making them an especially attractive source of sustainable energy. To do so, however, the cells should maintain their performance despite of a constant onslaught of the elements—humidity being a particular challenge for perovskite solar cells. Sagar Jain at SPECIFIC […]
The team at SPECIFIC has been working alongside the Swansea University Engineering Department and Queen Mary University of London to produce a paper on thermoelectric materials; “Thin Film Tin Selenide (SnSe) Thermoelectric Generators Exhibiting Ultralow Thermal Conductivity.” After two years of hard work, they have made the world’s first thin […]
