Aquavoltaics in the Philippines
An EU funded solar-plus-storage project has been tendered in the Philippines. The United Nations is seeking bids for the system, to support the for the seaweed industry on the island of Tawi-Tawi. Combining PV with aquaculture brings many advantages for both, including water conservation, a more controlled aquatic environment, and ecosystem restoration.

A new material for the battery of the future, made in UCLouvain
Renewable sources of energy such as wind or photovoltaic are intermittent. The production peaks do not necessarily follow the demand peaks. Storing green energy is therefore essential to moving away from fossil fuels. The energy produced by photovoltaic cells is stored during the day and by wind-power when the wind blows to be used later on when needed.

The enigma of the missing out on energy fixed in solar cells
The performance of solar cells can be increased by making use of a phenomenon called singlet fission. Nevertheless, unexplained energy losses during the response have actually until now been a major trouble. A research team led by researchers at Linkoping University, Sweden, has discovered what occurs during singlet fission as well as where the lost power goes. The results have actually been released in the journal Cell Reports Physical Science.

The World Is Spending the Least on Clean Energy in Six Years
Worldwide investments in clean energy projects have hit a six-year low. Global spending totaled $117.6 billion in the first half of 2019, down 14% from a year earlier and the least since 2013, according to a report by BloombergNEF. Investments slowed in all three major markets -- the U.S., Europe and China -- but China’s decline was especially pronounced as the country continued its shift away from subsidies for solar and wind power.
