What should be a dream solar panel? Efficient, cheap to produce, durable, flexible and eco-friendly. All these we can get thanks to perovskites: new material offering energy conversion efficiency comparable to silicon panels but much cheaper to produce with simple technology. New research done at IPC PAS in collaboration with EPFL, Switzerland, brings us closer to commercializing this technology.
Comprehensive high water and flood warning system "HydroProg" has been developed by scientists from Wrocław. It also works during extreme weather phenomena, says Prof. Tomasz Niedzielski from the University of Wrocław. Soon, scientists will be able to offer it to institutions and companies.
