U.S. And EU Will Further Study Improvement Of Solar Energy And Energy Storage Projects

- Jun 29, 2018 -

Two research projects aimed at improving solar panels and integrating energy storage are showing broad development prospects, including the University of Texas' efforts to integrate medium voltage inverters into power generation systems.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Energy provided a $3 million grant to Austin University of Texas to support the development of a modular, multi-functional, multi-port, medium-pressure (M4) utility-scale silicon carbide solar inverter. Transformers to reduce the impact of solar power on the grid on an intermittent basis.
In Germany, researchers at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) are investigating molecules for solar energy storage that control the release of electricity and efficiently store electricity in solar panel countries.
U.S. and EU researchers are working on various projects to increase the efficiency of solar panel power generation, with the aim of integrating components, simplifying systems, and reducing costs.
At the University of Texas, Alex Huang led and led the Core Power Electronics Center at the School of Engineering in Cocreard to study research projects funded by the US Department of Energy.
"Our solar energy storage solution not only reduces investment costs, but also reduces operating costs through its multiple functions." AlexHuang said in a statement released recently, "These functions will ensure that the future grid can carry a higher proportion By significantly reducing the impact of solar energy on the grid and providing grid regulation support, the M4 drive will provide the same flexibility as a traditional grid."
In Germany, researchers from the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) are researching and exploring two projects that use molecularly stored solar energy to achieve more efficient energy storage and controlled release of electrical energy.
"In this study, the stored chemical energy can be directly converted into electricity, and this vision can build 'energy storage solar cells'," said the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) in explaining the study. The goal is to develop new catalyst systems and electrodes that can be used to convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy.
The U.S. federal government has supported the development of advanced solar technology and announced in April this year that it will provide up to 105.5 million U.S. dollars for the development of new technologies. The agency's solar technology office plans to fund approximately 70 projects, including solar photovoltaic generation and concentrating solar collector technology.
