Solar-Thermal PV: Icarus RT

Icarus, RT creates a hybrid solar-thermal photovoltaic system that stores and uses leftover “waste heat” from solar panels to generate power on demand. This significantly increases power output per panel, and lowers cost per kilowatt. Learn more at the Icarus website.

Grid of the Future: Span

The Electrical Panel that Makes Solar and Storage Simpler and Cheaper to Install April 9, 2020 Homeowners don’t think much about their electrical panel until the power goes out. But the device plays a critical role in our day to day lives, taking in energy from the grid and distributing it out to different rooms…

Antora Energy recently demonstrated the world’s most efficient solid state heat engine

Stanford University: The startup has recently demonstrated the world’s most efficient solid state heat engine, topping the performance of all previous thermophotovoltaic, thermionic, and thermoelectric devices. This breakthrough is a key enabler for Antora’s energy storage technology, and also opens up numerous other applications ranging from industrial waste heat recovery to flexible carbon capture, utilization, and storage.
