Researchers at New York University, Stanford University and some members from NREL (based in Colorado) are setting their sights on using machine learning to create thin-film, organic solar panels.
German research institute Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (Fraunhofer ISE) has calculated Germany’s lignite open-cast ponds could host as much as a technical capacity of 56 GW of floating solar PV, but a more realistic economic potential of 2.74 GW.
