The Renewable Energy Conversion Working Group encompasses all aspects of renewable energy technology, and the use of these technologies in a wide range of applications from portable power, to off-grid power stations, to grid connected systems. The group has a primary focus on solar energy conversion which includes photovoltaic cell, panel and system technology for both space and terrestrial applications. Other technology areas of interest include: thermal energy conversion, wind and hydro power, kinetic energy harvesting, and biomass conversion.
The group includes panels focused on perovskite photovoltaics as well as space power:
