Solar Innovations: The Changing Face of Solar Energy

Solar power is no longer considered to be a niche sector, and the number of people around the country adopting the technology has increased exponentially. Due to this level of growth, scientists and engineers are always on the lookout for improvement, and this has led to a number of major breakthroughs in recent time. If you are considering solar panels in Brisbane or wondering how you can take full advantage of this power source, get in touch with Arise Solar for help. In the meantime, take a look at some of the breakthroughs in this space.

Perovskite Cells

If solar cells were already effective, the latest material innovation is likely to make them much more efficient. This will, in turn, make them more affordable and an even better buy for your rooftop. Look for Perovskite, a mineral derivative known for its superconductivity, as a material in their construction.

Solar Thermal Fuels

A form of storage can help you take full advantage of the solar power generated throughout the day. Today, some cutting-edge storage solutions are available, like solar thermal fuels. This new technology means that solar power can be stored as a liquid or even as a solid, presenting many more opportunities to harness the power of the sun.

Tracking Mounts

If you can only attach solar panels to a certain part of your roof, then you may be limited to how much energy you can collect based on the trajectory of the sun. Now, however, you can opt to add tracking mounts to your array so that the system will move as the Earth rotates. These systems will also tilt as necessary so that the solar array is always in perfect alignment. Now, you can install your array at ground level if necessary and may not need to worry about those rooftop aesthetics anymore.

Spray-on Solar

As engineers look for different ways to manufacture solar cells and to increase their efficiency, they have discovered a much easier solution with widespread potential. In 2014, researchers at the University of Sheffield figured out how to spray a solar cell onto a receptive surface to form a sun-harnessing layer. This means that solar cells can be sprayed onto a sheet of panels, allowing you to use fewer materials and consume far less time. Consequently, this should bring down the cost of manufacture and make the solution more widely available. Eventually, it’ll be possible to spray solar cells onto the roof of your house or your car.

Solar Panels for You

If you live in Queensland, New South Wales or South Australia, you’ll want to work with a forward-thinking organisation like Arise Solar. We have a large selection of cutting-edge solar solutions and will be happy to install solar panels in Sydney or any other city in these states. Get in touch with us for a quote today.
