Indonesia has been dependent on its abundant coal reserves to meet its increasing electricity demand. The Indonesian government is aware of the negative environmental effects of coal combustion and pledged to become carbon neutral by 2060 or earlier by transitioning towards renewables. In principle, it is known that Indonesia has large renewable...

Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) is commonly used to optimize the power output of solar arrays for LEO satellites. Traditional MPPT techniques such as Perturb & Observe often struggle when the satellite is rotating and the temperature and incident irradiance are rapidly changing. This scenario frequently occurs with miniaturized...

Tin/lead (Sn/Pb) iodide perovskites (PVKs) have emerged as promising absorber layer materials for high-efficiency tandem solar cells due to their low cost, high light absorption coefficients, and narrow band gaps. However, current solvent-based synthesis techniques offer poor scalability, in turn hindering commercialization.<br/><br/>This study...

As photovoltaic (PV) technology enters the terawatt era, reliability, sustainability, and circularity in the solar industry can no longer be optional considerations for manufacturing solar modules. Despite two decades of intense solar manufacturing, the PV industry still predominantly operates within a linear economic structure, characterized by...

During a solar eclipse, sunlight incident on the Earth is reduced due to the (partial) shadow of the Moon. Atmospheric trace gas concentrations which are influenced by the amount of available sunlight, such as nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>), may be affected due to the disrupted photolysis processes. Large-scale observations of the increased...

Tandem solar cells have a wider photon absorption range, allowing them to provide better efficiency than single-junction SC. The upper cell absorbs high-energy photons, while the lower cell absorbs low-energy filtered photons. However, in order to obtain affordable, efficient, and long-lasting SC, the absorber layers of the top and bottom...

Climate change and geopolitical risks call for the rapid transformation of electricity systems worldwide, with Europe at the forefront. Wind and solar are the lowest cost, lowest risk, and cleanest energy sources, but their variability poses integration challenges. Combining both technologies and integrating regions with dissimilar generation...

A variety of lakes located in the dry steppe area of southwestern Siberia are exposed to rapid climatic changes, including intra-century cycles with alternating dry and wet phases driven by solar activity. As a result, the salt lakes of that region experience significant fluctuations in water level and salinity, which have an essential impact...

The characterization of a wide range of luminescent thin films can be a long and tedious endeavor. With reactive combinatorial sputtering of multiple metal targets, it possible to fabricate thin films with a gradient in composition simply by not rotating the substrate. In this work, combinatorically sputtered thin films of Cr<sup>3+</sup> and...
