New MIT-developed Materials Make it Possible to Produce Photovoltaic Cells on Paper or Fabric

Last October, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Vladimir and Karen Gleason Bulovich demonstrated the possibility of placing solar batteries on a paper substrate, and six months later print it directly on paper. Their project, that are funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Italian energy company Eni, has continued to evolve.

Solar Panels Generate Energy for a High Speed Train

High-speed international trains,which runs between linking Paris and Amsterdam, the first in Europe use electricity generated by solar panels.The 3.6-kilometer tunnel crossing Antwerp, in northern Belgium, is fitted with 16,000 solar panels covering 50,000 square meters. The panels produce 3,300 megawatts of electricity per hour.According to Steven De Tollenaere, head of project developers Enfinity, during use electricity, the energy losses and transport costs are excluded.
