We are on the verge of a global energy system revolution. By signing and ratifying global treaties, the groundwork for this revolution is laid. The objective is to limit global warming to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and stabilise greenhouse gas concentrations at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference...

The potential gain in energy production and profit by improving the placements of turbines within a wind farm is driving interest. However, finding the optimal placements provides a complex problem. A large number of inter-dependent design variables create a design space that is difficult to solve. Therefore there is much attention for offshore...

The need for more efficient, cheaper, easily producible solar cells is growing as this combination of attributes can decrease the levelized cost of energy (LCOE). A two­terminal (2T) Perovskite and galliuminidium­gallium­selenide (Pvk/CIGS) tandem cell is an excellent candidate, as it can have a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of +30%, can be...

The urgency of taking actions against climate crisis is unprecedented. The human-produced CO2 is the largest contributor to global warming, which drives the climate change. Many countries around the world have committed to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in the next coming decades. Power-to-X (PtX) technologies in combination with carbon...

During the last years, large improvements in the efficiency on the CIGS technology have been achieved, making them excellent candidates as bottom cells for double junction tandem devices. This improvement is a result of the implementation of post deposition treatments (PDT) using alkali-metal fluorides. These alkalies prove to enhance the...

The last decade has seen an increase in the world wide energy demand, it was recorded as the highest spike encountered in the energy demand over a decade. On analyzing the main sources which were able to satisfy this overwhelming demand it was found that the majority was still from non-renewable sources or fossil fuels such as coal, oil and...

One of the main reasons that the efficiency drops from cell to module is the conduction losses. To increase the efficiency of the PV module, the produced charge carriers in the semiconductor materials should be transferred to the PV module terminals with minimum conduction losses. As an alternative to the conventional cells and modules...

Photovoltaic solar energy is one of the most powerful renewable source and is a promising solution for one of the major challenges that our current generation faces: the transition of the global energy sector from fossil-based to zero-carbon emissions. In order to reach this goal, the second generation of photovoltaic technology has been based...

As the need for abundant and reliable renewable energy increases, there is a growing interest in floating wind turbines, which would allow to harness the wind resource in areas where bottom-founded wind turbines cannot be used. However, the movements of the platform are expected to cause unsteady aerodynamics effects, including different wake...

Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) operation is characterized by complex and unsteady three-dimensional fluid dynamics, which presents considerable challenges. One of the crucial points to understand is the complex interaction between rotor, inflow, and wake systems. If we can demonstrate its effectiveness in the complex flow/inflow conditions,...

To meet the rapidly increasing global demand for energy, the potential of solar energy is being exploited towards its maximum capacity. The invention of poly-Si based passivating contacts has created an opportunity for c-Si solar cells to reach conversion efficiencies above 25%, while keeping the processing sequence relatively simple. Based on...

The development in solar cells began with wafer based cells, also called the first generation photovoltaic technology. Most of these wafer based cells were made of crystalline silicon. As a crystalline silicon cell must be relatively thick to absorb most of the incoming energy, the second generation (thin film solar cells) was introduced. In the...

Lithium-ion batteries are currently most commonly used in most electronic devices. These batteries are used because of their superiority in gravimetric energy and cyclability compared to other battery technologies. The most common anode used in lithium-ion batteries is currently graphite. Graphite has proven to be a very stable cycling material....

In earlier times the climate crisis was ignored. However, these days it is acknowledged as one of the most important challenges the world is facing. With increased awareness of anthropogenic emissions, most sectors are changing rapidly. One of those sectors is the offshore wind energy sector. As a consequence of the Paris Climate Agreement, the...

The offshore wind industry in Europe has experienced significant growth in the past decade, with wind farm development mostly focusing on the shallow area's in the North Sea. Naturally, the market is driven to reduce the Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCoE) to become more competitive with fossil fuels and less dependent on government subsidies....

Traditional trains, with steel rails and wheels, have been around for centuries. The very good energy efficiency of steel-wheeled trains is one of the reasons that they are one of the more promising transportation modes in the future, where energy conservation becomes more and more important. Furthermore, electric trains are able to efficiently...

To further improve the light management and optical performance of solar cells, research into nano-textured interfaces has led to a need for a fast and accurate wave optics model. Currently, within the PVMD group at the TU Delft an optical solar cell simulation tool, GenPro4, is being developed to allow for the quick optimization and analysis of...
