Price of solar cells in 2010

Price of solar cells in 2010

According to the American folk think tank, the World Institute and the Prometheus Institute forecast monitoring, solar cell prices in 2010 will be reduced by 40% or more, and become a major power generation means. World solar cell market in 2000 after the rapid increase of 6 times in a single year of 2006, up nearly 50% over the previous year. So far, Germany and Japan as the market center, the future will be Spain and the United States. Less silicon raw material used for several years probably can be solved, now many manufacturers have to reduce the cost of production in 2010 is expected to be lower than 40%.

As the silicon raw material shortages and price increases, promoting the efficient use of silicon technology and thin film amorphous silicon solar cells or the development, projected to reduce costs. Thin-film solar cells has led to "Silicon Valley" venture capital department concerned with the existing methods using different modes of production expected to be a lot cheaper supply. Report that in the near future, solar cells can be fully competitive with the existing price of electricity.

In 1966, the first fuel cell vehicle came

In 1966, scientists and engineers, General Motors launched the world's first fuel cell vehicle, which is a modification of the General Motors C Handivan, known as Electrovan. 250 team members, painstakingly study took two years, finally make the wheels can really drive the scientific laboratory, and demonstrated the feasibility of the potential of fuel cell technology.

Eramet global nickel supply and demand forecast to improve

Eramet global nickel supply and demand forecast to improve

France ERAMET Group has recently released the 2008 global nickel supply and demand conditions forecast. According to the forecast of nickel oversupply situation in 2008 than in 2007 would improve. January 2008 to December apparent consumption of nickel is expected to 1.435 million tons, output was 1.455 million tons, the excess 20,000 tons. The actual supply and demand of nickel in 2007 the number of the world were: consumption of 1.368 million tons, output of 1.436 million tons, 68,000 tons surplus. Therefore, the 2008 is still excess supply of nickel, but lower than in 2007 improved.

Apparent consumption of nickel is based on the global stainless steel production. World stainless steel production in 2007 28.099 million tons, annual output is expected to 3019 2008. Million tons, an increase of 7.4% over 2007. It is expected that in 2008 the world consumption of nickel may be more apparent increase of 4.9% in 2007.

However, ERAMET said China nickel pig iron production of nickel in 2008 will affect supply and demand. Chinese nickel pig iron production by the impact of the increased possibility of oversupply of nickel.

ERAMET said, China's imports of nickel ore stocks lower estimated 8.5 million tons, nickel content 10 tons. Market sources said that if the batch processing of nickel ore into nickel pig iron, nickel supply the world market will be uncertain to what extent.

Solar tree appeared in the streets of Austria and Italy

Solar tree appeared in the streets of Austria and Italy

Europe, some streets will be the use of "solar trees" by the solar-powered prototype facilities and appearance on the streets.

Vienna Ringstrasse leisure in Austria in October 2007 the street was set up this solar tree. They can provide enough light for the night.

Despite the clouds full days without direct sunlight, but solar tree can store enough solar energy. This tree can be used for solar street lighting.

Solar tree street in Vienna

Solar trees set of solar electric LED lighting systems can reduce carbon emissions.

2006 European street lighting electricity consumption of the total electricity used by 10%, or 20,000 KWh, equivalent to 2.9 billion tons of carbon emissions.

Austria Graz city population of nearly 300,000, use energy efficient lighting, the 2005 data, saving 524,000 KWh of electricity, festival capital € 67,200.

Solar tree branches on the set of 10 solar lights, each composed of 36 solar cells, they also have a rechargeable battery and electronic systems.

Sensor for measuring the brightness of space, and start automatically at sunset and sunrise solar light solar lights automatically turn off.
