Solar is a tremendous source of renewable and clean energy. Silicon monocrystal solar cell efficiency factor is 20%.47% of energy goes for heating solar cell, this effects to reduce efficiency factor. So we collect only small part of solar energy, that is 23 000 TWy. Especially in deserts.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:New strategy for local diffusion of dopants in crystalline siliconA new methodology to replace conventional diffusion processes has been developed and patented. This simple procedure offers a wide versatility, since it allows the creation of locally doped regions without photolithography steps while simultaneously reducing the global thermal budget of the emitter creation process. The potential of the method has been already confirmed for silicon solar cell applications. Partners to further develop the technology and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Multilevel Active-Clamped Electrical Energy ConverterA new multilevel conversion technique has been developed to produce efficient, compact, and easily scalable electrical energy converters to be employed in dc-dc, dc-ac, and ac-ac, single- or multiple-phase, conversion applications with unidirectional or bidirectional power flow. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:NEW SOLUTION TO PREVENT EXCESSIVE WEAR IN GEAR USEFUL FOR WIND TURBINESA new system to prevent the excessive wear in a tooth gear has been developed and patented. The system is specially developed to prevent the wear at the pitch and/or yaw gear tooth systems from the wind turbines but it could be used in others gears applications. Partners to further develop the system and/ or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Precast concrete floating platform to support Off-shore deep sea wind turbinesA new system including the design of the platform and erection process has been developed to produce economical and high-reliable floating support to offshore wind turbines in deep sea waters. A prestressed concrete structure built in a dry-dock, which includes both the floater and the tower is towed to the final position, where it is erected in a simple operation. The nacelle and the turbine can be placed without using a high crane. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Photo-thermoelectric cell for the conversion of thermal energy into electricityPhoto-thermoelectric cell for the conversion of thermal energy into electricity The Instituto de Ciencias de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) has developed a photo-thermoelectric cell with spectral selectivity to visible and infrared lights. If the cell is part of a thermoelectric generator, the device allows the conversion of the heat produced by incident radiation into electrical energy, due to the temperature difference established in the cell. This technology can also be used to take advantage of the residual heat of machines or electrical circuits. Industrial partners from the energy industry are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Graphene-based electroactive fluids for Energy Storage Researchers from the Spanish National Research Council at the Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia- CIN2 (CSIC) and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) have recently developed a novel type of nanocarbon-based fluids for energy storage in flow cells. They can be used for a wide range of systems that require high power and medium energy densities such as distributed and smart grid applications, stand-alone power systems, load balancers, uninterruptible power supply, etc. The technology has been proof as prototype and shows high performance, fast charge-discharge and efficient cyclability (98% after 1.500 cycles). Industrial partners are being sought to collaborate and/or exploit the existing know-how through a patent license agreement.
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Tri-functional tanks for desalination processesCSIC has developed a water filtration installation. It contains tanks designed to perform various functions: water filtration by means of ultrafiltration, water filtration by reverse osmosis and recycling of reverse osmosis membranes. This installation is used, for example, in seawater desalination processes. Industrial partners from the hydraulic companies are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Organic derivatives for the manufacture of electronic devicesCSIC have developed organic derivatives, low cost, with possibility of modifying its molecular structure, including different substitutions, improving the properties of electronic semiconductor. These molecules present not only interesting electronic properties which make them active for the manufacture of solar cells, specifically organic photovoltaic cells, but also an intense blue color which allows it so be used as a dye in the textile industry. Industrial partners from the energy, electronic and textile are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Use of immobilized enzymes in the synthesis of biodieselCSIC has developed a process for the enzymatic synthesis of alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids in the presence of an alcohol and an enzymatic preparation with a sterol esterase/lipase covalently immobilized on magnetic particles functionalized on its surface. The process increases the yield of the synthesis of alkyl esters, and allows recovery of the catalyst. The synthesized compounds can be used as biofuel. Industrial partners are being sought to use the technology through a patent licence agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
