The IREC's Solar Energy Materials and Systems Group reports a pioneering international study on the development of Raman scattering based techniques

The IREC's Solar Energy Materials and Systems Group reports a pioneering international study on the development of Raman scattering based techniques for the systematic identification of secondary phases in next generation chalcogenide based absorbers

This study is being developed in collaboration with leading research groups from the University of Barcelona and the University of Luxembourg, and involves the detailed in-depth resolved analysis of Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) and Cu2ZnSnSe4 (CZTSe) thin films for photovoltaic (PV) devices. These compounds are attracting increasing interest as replacements of chalcopyrite absorbers that are based on Cu(In,Ga)(S,Se)2 (CIS) alloys in thin film PV devices. In relation to CIS-based PV technologies, CZT(S,Se) materials are only formed by abundant and non-toxic materials, which makes them suitable for their mass deployment over the next few years as effective competition to traditional non-renewable energy sources.

The State Department of Climatic Change has resolved to grant Spain’s support to IREC’s project “ZÈFIR Floating Med Wind Plant”, of floating offshore wind turbines, in the European call of Program NER 300.

Zefir

The project has obtained the highest score of a list of 16 submitted proposals.

The “ZÈFIR Floating Med Wind Plant” project, that consists of setting-up a 25 MW offshore Wind Turbine Test Station in the Mediterranean territorial waters, opposite the coast of Tarragona, composed of 5 floating wind turbines, has been selected by the State Department of Climatic Change, from the Environment and Rural and Marine Environment Ministry, to represent Spain in the European Commission NER 3001 1call.

Within the framework of demonstration projects Categories of renewable energy innovative technologies (FER), IREC’s proposal has been submitted to the category of wind power projects and the subcategory “Deep-sea floating wind power system, with a nominal capacity of 25 MW”.

IREC participates in the conference Wind to Wheel

W2W 2011 is the first symposium that aims to provide a chance to discuss the challenges of the electric wind power system and the challenges of integrating the electric vehicles to the smart grids.

This means a change in the way of exploiting the system with intelligent network (SmartGrids), communication networks, power electronics and ENERTRONIC.

The IREC awarded the Valortec prize by the Government of Catalonia for its pioneering Lightelligence project in light reproduction

ValortecThe device is able to record and register environmental light in real time and to simulate sunlight or the northern lights.

Barcelona,  May 2011.- The Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC) has been awarded the Valortec prize by the Government of Catalonia for its Lightelligence project. It comprises a LED lighting device that makes it possible to measure and record the light spectre of an environment and reproduce it in real time.

The project was awarded the prize in the best Business Marketing Plan of a Technology or Patent category. The prize is sponsored by the agency that promotes the competiveness of Catalan businesses, ACC1Ó, which depends on the Ministry of Enterprise and Labour of the Government of Catalonia.

The IREC has already developed the first prototype of the Lightelligence device, which makes it possible to simulate natural light such as the sunrise or the northern lights in any space. It could be said that Lightelligence is to light what an MP3 player is to sound (music).
