WIDE-ANGLE PLANAR MICROTRACKING MICROCELL CONCENTRATING PHOTOVOLTAICS
Company Name Pennsylvania State University (Penn State)
Funded By 107
Country United States , Northern America
Project Value 3 Million
Project Detail

Project Innovation + Advantages: Pennsylvania State University (Penn State), along with their partner organizations, will develop a high efficiency micro-CPV system that features the same flat design of traditional solar panels, but with nearly twice the efficiency. The system is divided into three layers. The top and bottom layers use a refractive/reflective pair of tiny spherical lens arrays to focus sunlight onto a micro-CPV cell array in the center layer. The micro-CPV arrays will be printed on a transparent sheet that slides laterally between the top and bottom layer to ensure that the maximum amount of sunlight is delivered to the micro-PV cell throughout the day. Advanced manufacturing using high-throughput printing techniques will help reduce the cost of the micro-CPV cell arrays and allow the team to create five-junction micro-PV cells that can absorb a broader range of light and promote greater efficiency. By concentrating and focusing sunlight on a specific advanced micro-PV cell, the system can achieve much higher efficiency than standard FPV panels, while maintaining a similar flat panel architecture. Potential Impact: If successful, innovations from Penn States project may lower the cost of solar systems by allowing economical, high-volume manufacturing of micro-CPV arrays. Improved systems could encourage greater adoption of solar power in all three primary markets - residential, commercial, and utility. Security: Expanded use of clean, renewable solar power could reduce dependence on foreign sources of energy. Environment: Solar power offers clean power generation with zero emissions. Technologies developed under MOSAIC may also enable solar installations with smaller physical footprints, reducing the environmental impacts of large solar arrays Economy: Technologies developed under MOSAIC could offer a cost-effective option for clean, locally produced power across all market sectors.

Country Denmark , Western Europe
Project Value 1 Million
Project Detail

The overall objective of the here proposed project “Housing Association’s Energy Efficiency Process Planning and Investments” (HAPPI) is to increase the energy renovation rate within the social housing sector using an exemplary action bringing together six social housing associations in the Danish municipality of Sonderborg. It will challenge the complex interplay of non-technological barriers (organizational, legal, financial) through a well-defined process and capacity building, leading ultimately to an aggregated 15,2 MEUR investment program (leverage factor 15,1) for sustainable energy measures in the associated building stock. The total investment in energy efficiency will include 56 different departments of the six social housing organizations’ building stock, involving a total of 6,000 tenants in 3,318 homes, of which 2,100 are flats in storey buildings and 1,208 are terrace houses. The investment launched by HAPPI is anticipated to lead to energy savings of 11,5 GWh/year, annual reductions of 1,640 tons CO2 eq. and the generation of 1.6 GWh/year of renewable energy.

Attosecond X-ray spectroscopy of liquids
Company Name EIDGENOESSISCHE TECHNISCHE HOCHSCHULE ZUERICH

Country Switzerland , Western Europe
Project Value 3 Million
Project Detail

Charge and energy transfer are the key steps underlying most chemical reactions and biological transformations. The purely electronic dynamics that control such processes take place on attosecond time scales. A complete understanding of these dynamics on the electronic level therefore calls for new experimental methods with attosecond resolution that are applicable to aqueous environments. We propose to combine the element sensitivity of X-ray spectroscopy with attosecond temporal resolution and ultrathin liquid microjets to study electronic dynamics of relevance to chemical, biological and photovoltaic processes. We will build on our recent achievements in demonstrating femtosecond time-resolved measurements in the water, attosecond pho-toelectron spectroscopy on a liquid microjet and measuring and controlling attosecond charge migration in isolated molecules. We will first concentrate on liquid water to study its electronic dynamics following outer-valence ionization, the formation pathway of the solvated electron and the time scales and intermolecular Coulombic decay following inner-valence or core-level ionization. Second, we will turn to solvated species and measure electronic dynamics and charge migration in solvated molecules, transition-metal complexes and pho-toexcited nanoparticles. These goals will be achieved by developing several innovative experimental tech-niques. We will develop a source of isolated attosecond pulses covering the water window (285-538 eV) and combine it with a flat liquid microjet to realize attosecond transient absorption in liquids. We will complement these measurements with attosecond X-ray emission spectroscopy, Auger spectroscopy and a novel hetero-dyne-detected variant of resonant inelastic Raman scattering, exploiting the large bandwidth that is naturally available from attosecond X-ray sources.

Scalable Two-Dimensional Quantum Integrated Photonics

Funded By 38
Country Sweden , Western Europe
Project Value 3 Million
Project Detail

S2QUIP will introduce a paradigm shift in the development of scalable cost-effective integrated-chip quantum light sources. Scalable quantum light sources are of significant importance for the future quantum photonics technology applications. Current technologies still lack on-chip scalability due to the cumbersome integration of quantum light sources (e.g. quantum dots or crystal defects) that require a high-quality bulk matrix environment to operate. Here, S2QUIP aims to utilize atomically flat two-dimensional (2D) layered semiconductors to provide maximum flexibility for incorporation of quantum light sources into scalable photonic chip architectures using surface processing instead of bulk processing. Single and entangled photons will be deterministically generated using 2D semiconductors and efficiently coupled to on-chip cavities and multiplexed using integrated waveguides, switches, and beam-splitters. This approach will allow the demonstration of useful entangled photon states in a deterministic and scalable fashion that far surpasses the state-of-the-art using bulk semiconductors and optics. S2QUIP’s ambitious goal is to achieve 20 multiplexed quantum light sources that can fulfill the long-awaited expectation of scalable on-chip quantum light sources for numerous quantum technologies (e.g., large-scale quantum computation, communication and sensing).

Project Detail

To handle the unprecedented demand for mobile data traffic, different vendors, operators and research programmes have aimed to develop radio access technologies (RATs) that boost physical-layer link capacity, utilize millimeter wave radio, or further densify network topology. Notable steps have also been made towards shifting baseband processing from the (currently) ultra dense network edge to a central location where coordinated resource management will be performed. Nonetheless, the today’s mobile network ecosystem includes vastly heterogeneous, evidently overlapping (in coverage) and fully isolated (in operation) attachment points that still handle most of the functions necessary for mobile data communications independently. Aiming to meet and surpass the requirements set for the 5G-and-Beyond mobile data network, in SPOTLIGHT we will create a fully-integrated and multi-disciplinary network of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) that will analyze, design, and optimize the performance of a disruptive new mobile network architecture: the SPOTLIGHT architecture. This architecture promises to break performance limitations present to the currently loosely inter-connected, resource-fragmented and isolated in operation mobile network ecosystem, by transforming the currently loosely-coupled multitude of heterogeneous and multi-layered RATs to a flat coalition of massively distributed antenna sub-systems that are optimally orchestrated by a cloud-empowered network core. Our primary aim will be to support for the first time self-including yet ultra-reliable radio communications at the edge network. To further reduce response time and enhance network resilience, all functions necessary for mobile communications will be subject of i) massive parallelization in cloud platforms at the network core and ii) big data analysis running on-top of a virtual pool of shared energy, radio, computing and storage resources at the network.

Project Detail

The HIPERION consortium has been assembled to answer the call LC-SC3-RES-15-2019: Increase the competitiveness of the EU PV manufacturing industry. The goal of the project is to bring to fruition at the industrial scale a validated high efficiency module-level innovation, based on a disruptive planar optical micro-tracking technology, which concentrates sunlight on multijunction solar cells, mounted on top of a conventional silicon backplate. The resulting high efficiency solar modules (>30% STC under direct sunlight) with a standard flat panel form factor can be mounted on any standard racks or rooftops. The technology has been extensively demonstrated with outdoor tests and pilot installations. It must be now industrialized for mass production, to enable its integration by manufacturers in their existing production lines. The project will demonstrate at pilot-line level the assembly of these high efficiency modules, while several commercial pilot sites across Europe and qualification tests will further validate the performance and reliability. To achieve successfully this 48-month, 13 M€ valued action, a consortium of 16 members representing 9 European countries has been gathered. It includes several industrial players with the key expertise to develop the assembly processes, and some of the most renown European PV centers with strong know-how on design and qualification. A solar manufacturer will do a detailed economical evaluation on the integration of the technology in the production line, while several solar installers will represent both the rooftop and utility end markets. With its novel module architecture and innovative manufacturing processes, HIPERION has the potential to drastically reduce solar electricity costs by significantly boosting the efficiency. It could allow EU PV manufacturers to gain a clear competitive advantage against mainstream solar modules and to regain market shares on the growing PV market.

Synthetic toolkit for fragment oriented synthesis

Funded By 38
Country United Kingdom , Western Europe
Project Value 1,95,455
Project Detail

Fragment-based ligand discovery (FBLD) has become a mainstream strategy to discover new drugs to enable the treatment of conditions with unmet medical needs. Despite the remarkable rise of FBLD, significant chemical challenges remain in the field; firstly, elaborated fragments tend to be synthesised de novo when direct growth would be much more advantageous. Secondly, the currently available toolkit for fragment elaboration tends to exacerbate an uneven exploration of chemical space, yielding flatter and more lipophilic compounds. SYNFOS will allow Alexandre Trindade (the fellow) to join the laboratory of Professors Adam Nelson (host supervisor) and Steve Marsden (host co-supervisor) at the University of Leeds (Host) and develop research expertise in fragment-based ligand discovery; catalysis to enable molecular discovery; protein-protein interaction (PPIs) inhibition; and high-throughput X-ray crystallography (via secondments to Diamond (Partner)). In doing so, the fellow will (a) enhance his prospects of becoming an independent academic group leader in Europe and (b) address the need to train researchers in key multidisciplinary areas such as medicinal chemistry and chemical biology and (c) develop cutting edge synthetic methods that facilitates the fragment-based discovery of new inhibitors for protein-protein interactions. By building in fragment hits from the Host laboratory, the fellow will establish a synthetic toolkit enabling the functionalization of C-H bonds within N-heterocycles with a wide range of medicinally-relevant groups. The fellowship will explore three main modes of reactivity to establish the functionalization of sp3-hydridised carbons with heterocyclic fragments and showcase the value of the synthetic toolbox through the discovery of fragments hits into potent inhibitors of PPIs involving the ATAD2 bromodomain.

The Quantum Geometric Langlands Topological Field Theory
Company Name THE UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH
Funded By 38
Country United Kingdom , Western Europe
Project Value 1 Million
Project Detail

We will use modern techniques in derived algebraic geometry, topological field theory and quantum groups to construct quantizations of character varieties, moduli spaces parameterizing G-bundles with flat connection on a surface. We will leverage our construction to shine new light on the geometric representation theory of quantum groups and double affine Hecke algebras (DAHAs), and to produce new invariants of knots and 3-manifolds. Our previous research has uncovered strong evidence for the existence of a novel construction of quantum differential operators -- and their extension to higher genus surfaces -- in terms of a four-dimensional topological field theory, which we have dubbed the Quantum Geometric Langlands (QGL) theory. By construction, the QGL theory of a surface yields a quantization of its character variety; quantum differential operators form just the first interesting example. We thus propose the following long-term projects: 1. Build higher genus analogs of DAHAs, equipped with mapping class group actions -- thereby solving a long open problem -- by computing QGL theory of arbitrary surfaces; recover quantum differential operators and the (non-degenerate, spherical) DAHA of G, respectively, from the once-punctured and closed two-torus. 2. Obtain a unified construction of both the quantized A-polynomial and the Oblomkov-Rasmussen-Shende invariants, two celebrated -- and previously unrelated -- conjectural knot invariants which have received a great deal of attention. 3. By studying special features of our construction when the quantization parameter is a root of unity, realize the Verlinde algebra as a module over the DAHA, shedding new light on fundamental results of Cherednik and Witten. 4. Develop genus one, and higher, quantum Springer theory -- a geometric approach to constructing representations of quantum algebras -- with deep connections to rational and elliptic Springer theory, and geometric Langlands program.

Project Detail

Crystalline silicon wafer solar cells have been dominating the photovoltaic market so far due to the availability and stability of c-Si and the decades of Si technology development. However, without new ways to improve the conversion efficiencies further significant cost reductions will be difficult and the c-Si technology will not be able to maintain its dominant role. In the SiTaSol project we want to increase conversion efficiencies of c-Si solar cells to 30 % by combining it with III-V top absorbers. Such a tandem solar cell will result in huge savings of land area and material consumption for photovoltaic electricity generation and offers clear advantages compared to today’s products. The III-V/Si tandem cell with an active Si bottom junction with one front and back contact is a drop-in-replacement for today’s Si flat plate terrestrial PV. To make this technology cost competitive, the additional costs for the 2-5 µm Ga(In)AsP epitaxy and processing must remain below 1 €/wafer to enable module costs <0.5 €/Watt-peak. It is the intention of the SiTaSol project to evaluate processes which can meet this challenging cost target and to proof that such a solar cell can be produced in large scale. Key priorities are focused on the development of a new growth reactor with efficient use of the precursor gases, enhanced waste treatment, recycling of metals and low cost preparation of the c-Si growth substrate. High performance devices will be demonstrated in an industrial relevant environment. The project SiTaSol approaches these challenges with a strong industrial perspective and brings together some of the most well-known European partners in the field of Si PV and III-V compound semiconductors. Furthermore SiTaSol will support the competitiveness of the European industry by providing innovative solutions for lowering manufacturing costs of III-V materials which are essential in today’s electronic products including laptops, photonic sensors and light emitting diodes.
