The built environment contributes with 39% of the CO2 emissions in the world [3]. At the same time it is a sector that is expected to grow from US$10.9 trillion (2017) to US$12.9 trillion (2022) [4]. A sector with such an economic growth but with a negative environmental impact needs to innovate in order to reduce its carbon footprint. These are...

Global energy demand is on the rise. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2018, the building sector alone constituted 28 % of all energy-related CO2 emissions. In an effort to reduce the carbon footprint of the building sector, the European Union has decreed that every new building from 2021 must be a nearly zero energy...

This work proposes a new charge pump design suitable for energy harvesting on small human wearable devices. By using only one system for both cold start and high efficiency harvesting, the required silicon area is heavily reduced. The most fitting energy transducer is determined to be a photovoltaic cell, based on aspects of voltage, power and...

Whilst research in solar cell materials lead to higher efficiencies every year, new difficulties arise with every breakthrough to get an even higher efficiency. Therefore, every component of a PV system should be examined, as well as how their behaviour under operation affects performance to improve the overall PV yield. In particular the...

Electric Vehicles (EVs) provide a promising sustainable clean mode of transportation with much fewer emissions compared to the traditional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles. However, this can only be considered true if the energy sources used for charging EVs are also from clean energy form. Various Renewable Energy Sources (RES) are...

The electrical output of a solar panel can be optimised in several ways, through the inclusion of bypass diodes (BPDs) or to have a maximum power point (MPP) tracker or DC optimiser to ensure that the panel is always operating at its global MPP. However most of these systems have to be implemented externally to the panel. A new system, the...

Glass is one of the most remarkable building material in modern architecture. It has become more and more valued as a major construction material. It does not only provide continuous transparency but it can be applied as a main structural element due to its high load-bearing capacity. The structural system has already been realized in several...

Quantum dots (QDs) are nano-crystal semiconductors (1-100 nm) in which charge carriers (electrons and holes) are confined in all 3 dimensions by potential barriers that cause them to behave differently from conventional bulk semiconductors. QD research in the past decade has progressed rapidly, allowing<br/>a deeper understanding of the physics...

Nowadays, silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cell is one of the most promising photovoltaic technologies thanks to the outstanding passivation quality from the a-Si:H layers. Together with the interdigitated-back-contacted (IBC) architecture, it enables the highest efficient, 26.7%, single junction c-Si solar cell. However, the mass production...

Over the last 50 years, the global airline industry has seen resilient growth in the demand for passenger travel; this trend is expected to continue in the coming decades. With kerosene being the predominant source used as jet fuel, this increase in air traffic is expected to result in the depletion of non-renewable fossil fuels and undesired...

The problem that needs to be resolved is the fact that there is too little knowledge about the energetically optimal application of photovoltaic thermal collectors (PVT) in an energy system configuration as well as its integration in a building envelope. A solution for this problem could eventually entail an optimisation in the use and storage...

Despite the fact that the price per watt-peak for photovoltaic modules are decreasing rapidly, there is a large population of people which have still not implemented photovoltaic technology in their everyday lives. An important reason why PV is still not the main source of electrical energy for these people is the uncertainty that comes with...
