New Solar Cells to Solve Climate Change
How can technology solve climate change? New solar cells from researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) may offer the answer.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is a research organization that has been around for more than 50 years. In 2017, it launched a new initiative called the Renewable Energy Revolution. Its aim was to make the technology industry-ready by developing low-cost, high-efficiency solar cells.
One of the reasons why this technology is so valuable is because it can solve the global warming problem without relying on fossil fuels. The lab is developing two new solar cells, which are made from renewable materials, such as manganese dioxide, and copper. These new solar cells can be used by manufacturers to develop solar panels, cell phones, and batteries.
“NREL’s Renewable Energy Revolution is an innovative company focused on making renewable energy affordable for consumers.”
They aim to make the green industry accessible to all. This includes making solar cells affordable, and improving energy storage technology.
The company has so far funded itself with money from the European Union’s Joint Research Center and other European governments and universities. But the company has now decided to apply for a federal grant from the Department of Energy. They are looking for the green tech to be given to the public and help the world get over its fear of solar panels.
