Abstract Ultrathin uracil-complexed CdS nanowires (U-CdS NWs) were synthesized using a facile wet-chemical process and exploited as an effective electron transport layer (ETL) in organic solar cells (OSCs). The U-CdS NW layer acted as a functional interfacial layer between the active organic and inorganic ZnO films; the functional N H and C O groups in uracil passivated the ZnO surface defects and CdS provided a favorable energy band alignment, which facilitated electron transportation. As a res...

Abstract Halide perovskite solar cells designed using planar architectures are rapidly becoming of high interest due to their low-temperature fabrication process. As the Electron Selective Layer, SnO2 can enhance charge transfer from perovskite to electron transport layers leading to the reduction of charge accumulation at the interface exploiting the larger band offset with perovskite and a higher electron mobility compared with traditional TiO2. Herein, we developed a method for the fabricatio...

Abstract Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells have emerged as solar technology for practical application as building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) due to low-cost processing, working ability in the ambient environment, and colour transparency. The colour transparency is inherited from the nanostructured mesoporous TiO2 and colourful dye. However, mesoporous TiO2 possesses poor electron transport properties due to multiple grain boundaries, resulting in undesirable recombination reactions that lead to the...

Abstract We illustrate and compare commonly used benchmark, or reference, methods for probabilistic solar forecasting that researchers use to measure the performance of their proposed techniques. A thorough review of the literature indicates wide variation in the benchmarks implemented in probabilistic solar forecast studies. To promote consistent and sensible methodological comparisons, we implement and compare ten variants from six common benchmark classes at two temporal scales: intra-hourly ...

Abstract Finding diverse applications of installed PV based power generating unit is necessary for optimal utilization of energy produced by these units over a period of time. This paper proposes a high gain boost converter that can be used as a DC source for electric vehicle charging application in existing PV based solar pump set-up. The proposed DC-DC converter uses two-stage boosting to achieve a high voltage gain in the form of quadratic quadrupled boost factor. Low turns ratio in coupled i...

Abstract The problem of climate change requires a transition to carbon–neutral energy. Given the variability of key renewable energy sources such as solar photovoltaics (PV) and wind, fully renewable electricity systems require some form of energy storage. But as described in this study, the economics of electrical energy storage are complex. Many reports on cost of electricity storage confuse the cost of charge/discharge power in kW with the cost of energy storage potential in kWh. These parame...

Abstract To solve the problem of winter snow accumulation in photovoltaic power stations, a new method of self-heating to remove snow from photovoltaic panels is proposed. This method overcomes the drawbacks of existing methods. No additional devices are needed, and photovoltaic cell wear, resource waste, and safety risk is reduced. Using the structural characteristics of the pn junction in the photovoltaic cell, a positive voltage is applied to the photovoltaic panel to melt the snow layer on t...

Abstract Two novel highly conjugated small organic molecules as hole transporting materials (HTMs) coded T(EDOT-TPA)2 and DBT(QT-TPA)2 were designed and developed by utilizing facile synthetic procedures with high yields. The fabricated perovskite solar cells (PSCs) utilizing these HTMs without any dopants under 1 sun illumination (100 mW cm−2, AM 1.5G) and surface area of 1.02 cm2 achieved a short circuit current (JSC = 19.23), open circuit voltage (VOC = 1.042), fill factor (FF = 0.679) and ov...

Abstract Molybdenum oxide (MoOx) has been used as a suitable interfacial modifier for emergent solar cells. However, the relatively low electrical conductivity of such material requires a thickness less than 10 nm of MoOx, which may lead to an uncovered surface and reduce the effect of interfacial modification. In this work, MoO3 and Au powder were co-evaporated and MoOx:Au composite coatings with a thickness of 10–20 nm were obtained. They are highly transparent, more compact and conductive, an...

Abstract Herein, we report the platinum-cobaltx (Pt-Cox) nanoparticles (NPs) as a cocatalyst were synthesized by solvothermal method, and then modified on the surface of cadmium sulfide (CdS) via means of photoinduced deposition. Under visible light irradiation, the hydrogen generation rate of Pt3Co/CdS reached to 45.09 mmol·h−1·g−1 (QE = 46.01%, λ = 420 nm), which was 2.7 times and 1.8 times higher than that of Co/CdS and Pt/CdS, respectively. The high photocatalytic performance could be attrib...
