Construction begins on 30 MW of solar in Burkina Faso.Work has started on PV plants with generation capacities of 20 MW and 10 MW. The facilities will be located in Koudougou, in Boulkiemdé province and in Kaya, in Sanmatenga, respectively.
The Canadian scientists have discovered a promising production technology for gallium arsenide solar cells. Growing cells directly on silicon substrates is a promising strategy that can reduce the excessively high production costs of certain technologies. By using porous silicon, scientists can take a big step towards the goal of producing high-performance III-V solar cells at a lower cost.
