British Science Festival 2016

Dr. Dan Lamb is presenting at this years British Science Festival which is taking place at Swansea University during the 6th – 9th September. Dan’s talk will take place on Friday 9th September at 12:00-13:00 in lecture theatre K in the Faraday Building.

Intro: On Earth, solar power is a promising renewable energy source but solar cells were originally developed to power the satellites orbiting our planet. Now, initiatives such as Space Based Solar Power and Lunar and Martian Bases are driving the need for a new type of solar cell. Join Dan Lamb to find out about his work developing ultra-lightweight solar cells that are being tested in the UK Space Agency’s CubeSat mission this summer.

PVSAT-12 to be held 6th-8th April 2016 at the University of Liverpool

PVSAT is the UK’s premier scientific event for solar PV where the latest advances in UK research and development are presented and discussed. This 3-day conference covers all PV technologies; crystalline silicon, inorganic thin film, multi-junction concentrators and emerging organic and hybrid cells, including perovskite cells.

But PVSAT is not just about research. From the beginning this conference has included applications, field performance, environmental impact, policy issues and market development and with the UK’s impressive deployment of PV in just the last three years, there is much to learn from the experience and performance of large-scale solar PV in the UK.
