Toshiba technology company quieted the laptop business on August 2020, has since been commited in other areas of technology specifically electronics.
The company said it is ready to showcase technology innovations that will advance decarbonization, at the, the online exhibition accompanying , which runs from October 31 to November 12. Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) (hereinafter “Toshiba”) will present its state-of-the-art film-type perovskite and Cu2O tandem solar cells, while Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (hereinafter “ESS”) will present carbon dioxide capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and Power to Chemicals (P2C) technologies.
The COP26 Virtual Japan Pavilion, hosted by Japan’s Ministry of the Environment, will put the spotlight on Japan’s work to promote decarbonization technologies, and curate technologies from companies and organizations that support local and global initiatives for carbon neutrality. The pavilion will also provide a networking platform for visitors from around the world.
The company presented a glimpse of what Toshiba and ESS will bring to the event.
New Solar Cells to Boost Renewable Energy
Light, film-type perovskite solar cells and Cu2O tandem solar cells with high power generation efficiency
Carbon neutrality is only possible with renewable energy, and solar energy is considered as one of the most promising alternatives. But silicon solar cells are heavy and rigid, limiting where they can be used. Toshiba is working on more versatile cells to increase use and output. The film-type perovskite solar cell is thin, light and flexible, advantages for wide-scale installation in places where silicon solar cells cannot be installed. It promises greatly increased solar power generation.
Toshiba’s Cu2O tandem solar cell makes current modules more efficient. Formed with transparent cuprous oxide (Cu2O), it is positioned over a standard silicon cell. As the cells generate power at different wavelengths, output per area significantly increase. This highly efficient solar cell promises electric vehicles that need no recharging on long journeys.
Toshiba is a Japanese company with the head office in Tokyo.
