On the cusp of a solar revolution
BODY:
Next generation printable and flexible solar cells, made with new materials, are part of a clean-energy revolution
EXTENDED BODY:
The price is going only in one direction, and that’s down.
Justin Hodgkiss, MacDiarmid Institute

This year we’ll capture more of our energy from sunlight than ever before. Photo-voltaic panels are part of a thriving renewables industry, and the drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to tackle climate change is likely to boost growth even more.
Justin Hodgkiss, the deputy director of the MacDiarmid Institute, says as production is scaled up, costs go down, and we could be on the cusp of a solar revolution that makes solar power affordable and competitive.
“Solar power has been doubling every two years, but it’s not something that’s come out of the blue. It’s actually been doubling every two years for the past 25 years, ever since photo-voltaic panels were first invented. This is completely normal scaling for a new technology.”
At Victoria University of Wellington, Justin Hodgkiss leads a group that focuses on the next generation of polymer-based printable and flexible solar cells, which have the potential to bring prices down even further because they can be mass-produced and are made of abundant materials.
In my lab, we’re working on printable PV technology and that is where the active layer that absorbs light and creates electricity, instead of being made from silicon which you need to process as a solid panel, it’s made from polymers that can be printed as an ink.”

Joe Gallagher, who is completing a PhD in the group, says the polymers are dissolved in solution and can be printed as a very thin film that can be put on a flexible, transparent substrate.
“The layer can be incredibly thin, so you don’t need much material to effectively act as a solar cell. One kilogram can spread over 5000 square metres so you’ve got a very efficient way of making a lot of photo-voltaic cells for very low cost in terms of the materials, but it’s all about finding the most efficient materials.”
Chemically speaking, the polymers are complex molecules whose electrons are arranged in a way that allows them to absorb light and conduct electricity. Their structure is similar to chlorophyll, the green pigment plants use in photosynthesis.
The team works with chemists around the world who synthesise promising materials, which are then put through their paces in a laser lab in a quest to identify those that are most efficient in converting light into electricity.
The team uses ultra-short laser pulses that are about 100 femto seconds long (a millionth of a billionth of a second), says Justin Hodgkiss. “The reason we need such short pulses is that the time scale that light is converted to electricity is on that timescale. The difference between a good polymer photo-voltaic material and a bad polymer PV material happens on the sub-pico second timescale and so we’ve been focusing hard on that time scale to find out exactly what makes a good charge separation.”
And that’s where efficiency gains come from. In essence, the first step in creating a current comes down to absorbing light and separating positive and negative charges.
I’m quite optimistic that we’re going to get over 15 per cent power conversion efficiency. To put that into perspective, the silicon panels that you would buy today for your roof are about 15 to 16 per cent efficient. When I first started working on polymer PV, the efficiency was about 4 per cent seven years ago. Now it’s at 12 per cent and that’s been through the type of iterative process whereby measurements from labs feed into the design of new molecules.”

If we were to scale up solar power, Justin says the materials required to make the active layers are abundant. “I would say that the things that we would need to think carefully about and possibly innovate new solutions are other components, like the electrodes."
Active layers need to be sandwiched between electrodes and one of those needs to be transparent. “There are challenges in generating electrodes that are cheap and made from abundant materials but I’m sure that these innovations will go hand in hand with the development of active layer materials."
Justin Hodgkiss is one of the speakers in the Royal Society of New Zealand’s Luminaries series, which marks the International Year of Light.

Auckland begging regulations and by-laws
BODY:
Why does it appear that there are more people asking for money or for food on the streets of our towns. As part of this Nights study looking at the reasons for the apparent increase of Begging in New Zealand, in conjunction with Radio New Zealand's Features team, Lisa Thompson looks into the regulations and by-laws around begging in Auckland.
EXTENDED BODY:
Part of Radio New Zealand's Begging in New Zealand series
By Lisa Thompson
Begging in New Zealand - Auckland Council estimates that every day there are approximately 30 people begging up and down Queen Street and nearby thoroughfares.
While some are neatly presented, others lie sprawled across doorways, laughing and chatting with those nearby.
There are also those who want to remain invisible - covering themselves up, and let their cups and signs do the talking.
But, no matter what their chosen position is, as soon as they sit or kneel on the footpath they are covered by Auckland's city safety and public nuisance by-law.
Auckland Council's manager of by-laws and compliance Max Wilde says begging in the city is on the increase.
"Begging seems to be related to complex social issues, there's not exactly one reason specific why people beg - there may be underlying alcohol and drug issues.
"They may, due to mental health issues, have fallen through the cracks of the welfare system, and they may be on the streets sometimes just to drink with their friends and want to fund their addictions.
"The numbers have been increasing, but Auckland has been growing too."
He says the the by-law has both proactive, and reactive policies, and education is fundamental to dealing with begging in the city.
"People out there begging understand the rules, where they can be [and where they can't be] in order to be compliant with the by-law."
Begging in New Zealand runs from 19-22 October on Nights with Bryan Crump, with additional daily online content at radionz.co.nz.

Beggars or choosers?
BODY:
It doesn't seem to matter what island you're living in - begging remains an issue. Katy Gosset talks to beggars in Christchurch and examines the growing trend towards online crowd funding. She asks whether asking for money is still begging if it's happening online?
EXTENDED BODY:
Part of Radio New Zealand's Begging in New Zealand series
By Katy Gosset
Jackson sits outside the shops of the Christchurch suburb of Richmond, with his hand-written sign made from a piece of cardboard.
He says recently left jail and can't get a benefit - and is one of a number of people who have resorted to asking passersby for money on the city's streets.
He usually makes about $40 a day.
“I only just started doing it because I’ve just got out of jail and WINZ won’t help you because [I’ve] got no ID to get in, so there’s no other way [I] can get by.”
Jackson, who doesn't want to be identified by any more than his first name, says he would rather be asking for money on the street than committing a robbery.
“At least [by begging] I won’t go back to jail.”
He uses what he makes to buy food and sometimes stays in a backpackers hostel for the night to avoid getting caught in abandoned buildings.
Listen to Katy Gosset's report:
Gary Dickie also regularly begs in central Christchurch. He says his criminal record makes it hard for him to get a job.
He says he begs to give money to his other homeless friends and makes just over $30 a night, which he sometimes uses for alcohol or drugs.
"It's hard to come off that stuff especially if you're grieving. I had a good life with my girlfriend and now it all went downhill and I'm just living all by myself now."
Quite a few people willingly give him money without him even having to ask, Dickie says.
His daily routine often consists of "[waking] up with a mean hangover” then doing it all over again, he says.
People often tell him to "get a job".
"But if they say 'get a job', I say 'are you going to employ me?'"
Dickie says he doesn't swear at them or get cheeky, and instead gives them kind comments.
"I put my hat out, I sing songs, tell jokes - bit of a comedian.
"If you make people laugh, they will give, but if you don't make them laugh and they're angry people you just talk to them - see if you can get in their head that it's hard out here."
Challenge for Christchurch
However, not everyone is happy about the presence of beggars in the Christchurch, and the council is looking at ways of dealing with the issue.
Councillor Paul Lonsdale has been considering ways to tackle begging in the city after receiving complaints from businesses and individuals.
“Sometimes when they're walking around asking for money they can become quite aggressive."
Some business owners have also faced aggression from beggars who have been moved on from shop doorways, he says.
"That's a concern and we just need to find out what we can do to actually address that."
The council hasn't ruled out a by-law, but he says any move would only address public nuisance.
Instead, he believes a multi-agency approach, partnering with organisations such as the Salvation Army or the City Mission would be more effective in getting beggars the help they need.
Amy Burke has been working with local beggars to help them get off the streets and access support services.
Her group, Help for the Homeless, aims to “provide help for those who are homeless and in need” and sets us various initiatives, including serving free lunch in Latimer Square.
Having an online presence, such as a Facebook page, has improved her group's profile and prompted more donations, she says, but her site is also targeted by people wanting the organisation to pay for other services or to share their plight online.
"There's too many of them - we only share our own [Facebook posts]."
Burke says the limited resources available to the organisation must be kept for the homeless community in Christchurch.
As Christchurch starts to address the issue of begging and looks at ways to deal with it, Jackson sums why he spends his days sitting on the footpath asking people for money.
“It’s all about survival."
