The world's first thermophotovoltaic (TPV) cell manufacturing line has been created by Antora Energy, a pioneer in low-carbon heat and electricity for the industrial sector. This marks a significant advancement in the production and scalability of TPV technology. Additionally, the business has established a new standard for the sector by demonstrating a TPV efficiency rate of more than 40%. With these significant accomplishments, Antora is ready to revolutionize energy storage and conversion, two processes essential for industrial decarbonization and achieving net zero.
A heat engine without moving parts that functions similarly to the photovoltaic cells in a solar panel has been created by engineers from MIT and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. A grid-scale thermal battery might include the engine.
