Integration of two-dimensional materials-based perovskite solar panels into a stand-alone solar farm

  • Posted by R2ES Laboratory
  • On 5 Luglio 2022
As a vital step towards the industrialization of perovskite solar cells, outdoor field tests of large-scale perovskite modules and panels represent a mandatory step to be accomplished. Here we demonstrate the manufacturing of large-area (0.5 m2) perovskite solar panels, each containing 40 modules whose interfaces are engineered with two-dimensional materials (GRAphene-PErovskite (GRAPE) panels). We further integrate […]

Perovskite-based building integrated photovoltaic systems can drastically reduce the environmental footprint of the European energy mix

  • Posted by R2ES Laboratory
  • On 8 Dicembre 2021
A prospective life cycle assessment study carried out within the European ESPResSo-project consortium reveals that the environmental footprint of perovskite-based BIPV systems will be highly competitive compared to other technologies in the future European energy mix. Scaled-up production, improved efficiency and longer lifespans will drastically improve the energy sustainability of such systems in the coming […]

Luminescent solar concentrators with outstanding optical properties by employment of D–A–D quinoxaline fluorophores

  • Posted by R2ES Laboratory
  • On 29 Ottobre 2021
Luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) are devices designed to efficiently collect both direct and diffuse solar radiation and concentrate it on photovoltaic cells to foster their use in building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). The optimization of LSC performances involves the adjustment of both the fluorophore and the guest polymer matrix. On this account, we investigated a series of […]

LCA driven solar compensation mechanism for Renewable Energy Communities: the Italian case

  • Posted by R2ES Laboratory
  • On 14 Luglio 2021
Renewable energy communities are multi-users energy systems that are expected to become popular in all countries, including Italy. This paper discusses environmental-driven solar compensation mechanisms, specifically designed for energy communities. Such mechanisms consider the adoption of Distributed Energy Resources by the communities and reflect their overall life cycle environmental benefit. Notably, an innovative three-steps iterative methodology is adopted […]
