News Article | May 8, 2017

India unveiled the world's biggest solar farm earlier this year and has quadrupled its solar capacity in the last three years, bringing electricity to millions of off-grid households. But what are the innovations that could see solar replacing fossil fuels completely? Rameshwarlal Choudhary, a 45-year old farmer, and his wife Dakha, 40, live with their two children in a small shack near the village of Solawata in India's Rajasthan. Their home has thatched walls, a tin roof, and one side is completely open to the elements. Until six months ago, they were part of the 44% of India's rural households who lack electricity. Now, through a 40-watt solar panel perching on a tree branch outside the hut, they have enough power for three lights: one inside the house, one in the fields, and one on a tree above the roof. "With the extra light we can study until 10 pm," says their daughter Pooja, a 17-year-old student. And her parents can farm and milk their cows beyond sunset - around 5pm - for the first time. "The light also helps keep snakes, rodents, and scorpions at bay," says Ramjilal, their 20-year-old son who is also a student. This one small example is emblematic of how India is going solar in a very big way. In November, the country unveiled the world's largest-ever solar farm at Kamuthi, in Tamil Nadu. It stretches across 2,500 acres, and its 2.5 million solar modules are cleaned each day by a team of robots, themselves solar-powered. While countries like Britain and Germany have seen new solar installations slow after the withdrawal of government subsidies, India and China are ramping up their installations. India quadrupled its capacity in the last three years to 12GW (gigawatts) - 1GW can power about 725,000 homes. This will almost double again this year, with India adding 10GW in 2017; another 20GW is in the pipeline. China is installing solar panels at a similar clip; its capacity leapt to 77GW last year, up from 43GW. As recently as 2010, there was only 50GW of solar capacity installed in the entire world. "This installation of solar power is much higher than anyone could've believed just a few years ago," says Josefin Berg, senior analyst for the IHS solar research group. "The cost of the technology has dropped much faster than anyone anticipated," she says, "but the main decline has been in the technology advances." Solar panels are just not that efficient. A major problem is that about 35% of the sun's light is reflected off the panels rather than being absorbed and converted into electricity, So could biomimicry - copying structures already found in nature - help the panels become more light absorbent? One research team in Finland thinks so. It has been studying leaf structures to find out how they do it. Prof Marko Huttula and senior research fellow Wei Cao at the University of Oulu studied 32 different types of leaf structure to see which absorbed light the best. "Corn seems to be the winner for light absorption," says Prof Huttula. "That kind of makes sense because it is very fast growing." Using what they'd learned, the pair designed a polymer coating featuring patterns of what Dr Cao calls "nanodots". This polymer is then applied on top of silicon cells. So far they have succeeded in reducing the percentage of light lost through reflection from 35% to 12%. Decreasing wasted light this way increases solar panels' energy output by up to 17%, they claim. Now they are working on scaling up the process with collaborators in China. Even with costs of solar cells dropping, there are pretty large leaps forward in efficiency needed before solar energy can broadly supplant fossil sources, says Dr Ross Hatton, an associate professor of physical chemistry at Warwick University. Today's commercial solar cells convert only about 16% to 20% of the sun's energy into electricity. Solar cells based on semiconductors with both organic and inorganic parts - called perovskite solar cells - might boost this up to around 30% if combined with conventional silicon technology. Perovskites can also be made as flexible, lightweight films, meaning they are both cheap and easy to install in a wider variety of places. But a downside is that they tend to disintegrate in humid conditions. "I would say that there would be a very significant cost advantage over silicon, but it's also about the utility - silicon can't be used on the tops of automobiles, or on the cover of your laptop," says Dr Hatton. Also, they "could be fabricated using a roll-to-roll process - it's how you print a newspaper - and is a very well established technology," he says. Several university spin-offs, like Oxford PV and Eight19 in the Cambridge Science Park, have said they aim to market perovskite solar cells this year. Another problem with solar is that at a domestic level, installing it is still a cumbersome process - and many householders don't much like how the panels look. This is why Tesla boss Elon Musk unveiled a new design for solar panels that resemble traditional roof tiles. And Austrian start-up Smartflower has designed a neat, all-in-one solar unit that sits in your garden, tracks the sun like a sunflower, and folds itself up for protection at the end of the day or in poor weather. The Smartflower, which costs from £13,560 ($17,660), produces enough electricity to power a standard household of four people, but needs five cubic metres of space. So the company is developing a smaller version for people with less external space. They have sold the device in Europe since 2014, and last year in the US as well. The firm is also developing an "internet of things" capability for the product so that the Smartflower can switch household appliances on and off depending on how much solar electricity is available. With the cost of solar continuing to drop around the world and efficiency improvements - however modest - coming through, the future of this renewable tech looks bright.

REHOVOT, Israel, May 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeuroDerm Ltd. (Nasdaq:NDRM), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company developing drug-device combinations for central nervous system (CNS) disorders, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. “We are pleased with our continued clinical progress for our lead product candidates, and remain on track to achieve our anticipated milestones for ND0612 and ND0701,” stated Oded Lieberman, PhD, CEO of NeuroDerm. “Our recently announced preclinical, life cycle management product candidate ND0901 demonstrates our long term commitment to the treatment of Parkinson's Disease and to continuous levodopa delivery, and we are excited to be developing another potential treatment option for patients suffering from this debilitating disease. We had the opportunity to meet with many patients during the Parkinson’s Unity Walk, which took place in New York City last month, and their support of our efforts was both gratifying and an important reminder of the urgency with which new treatments are needed.” Announced ND0901, a continuous, subcutaneous, follow-on life cycle management product for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease At its first Investor Day this past April, the Company announced a new drug-device candidate for continuous subcutaneous LD/CD delivery. This pre-clinical drug candidate comprises a novel, concentrated aqueous LD prodrug, and will potentially be developed for treating Parkinson's disease motor complications. Clinical development of ND0901 is anticipated to start by early 2018. The currently anticipated timelines for the ongoing and upcoming clinical trials are as follows: Financial Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2017 Research and development expenses were $10.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $4.1 million in the same period in 2016.  The increase was primarily due to an increase in subcontractors and materials mainly from ongoing clinical trials and pre-clinical studies, and due to an increase in payroll and related expenses, including share-based compensation expenses, as a result of an increase in the number of employees. General and administrative expenses were $3.3 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $1.6 million in the same period in 2016.  The increase was primarily due to an increase in share-based compensation expenses. The company reported a net loss of $13.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $5.4 million for the same period in 2016.  The increase in net loss was primarily due to the increase in research and development expenses. As of March 31, 2017, the company had cash and cash equivalents and short-term bank deposits totaling $142.3 million. NeuroDerm is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company with a limited operating history, has not yet generated revenue from its operations and continues to incur significant research and development and other expenses related to its ongoing operations. Accordingly, there is no assurance that NeuroDerm’s business will generate positive cash flow.  As of March 31, 2017, NeuroDerm had an accumulated deficit of $193.8 million and its activities have been funded through public and private offerings of the company’s securities and issuance of convertible loans and warrants. NeuroDerm hosted its first Investor Day on April 21, 2017 and provided a thorough review of its product candidates and timelines. Therefore, the company will not host a conference call surrounding first quarter, 2017 financial results, but plans to resume quarterly updates surrounding the release of second quarter financial results. Individuals interested in listening to the Investor Day presentation may do so by clicking here. About NeuroDerm NeuroDerm is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing central nervous system (CNS) product candidates that are designed to overcome major deficiencies of current treatments and achieve enhanced clinical efficacy through continuous, controlled administration.  The company has three product candidates in different stages of development which offer a solution for almost every Parkinson’s disease patient from the moderate to the very severe stage of the disease.  The company has developed a line of levodopa and carbidopa (LD/CD) product candidates administered through small belt pumps that deliver a continuous, controlled dose of LD/CD.  The LD/CD product candidates are ND0612L and ND0612H, which are used for treatment of moderate and advanced Parkinson’s disease patients, respectively, and which are delivered subcutaneously.  In addition, NeuroDerm is developing ND0701, a novel subcutaneously delivered apomorphine formulation for patients who suffer from moderate to severe Parkinson’s disease and who do not respond well to LD/CD.  NeuroDerm is headquartered in the Weizmann Science Park in Rehovot, Israel.

New Advanced Instruction Set Architecture Greatly Extends Andes' Product Line Performance Range Into High End Applications Demanding Exabytes of Address Space HSINCHU, TAIWAN--(Marketwired - May 09, 2017) - Andes Technology Corporation (TPE: 6533), the leading Asia-based supplier of small, low-power, high performance 32-bit embedded CPU cores, stated that it will become the first mainstream CPU IP provider to adopt RISC-V, the open RISC Instruction Set Architecture developed at the University of California Berkeley. Andes will introduce a new 64-bit CPU based on the innovative V5 instruction set architecture (ISA) at the Andes Embedded Forum being held at the Parkyard Hotel in Shanghai on May 10th. The new 64-bit V5 ISA provides a significant performance advance to address high end applications such as enterprise-class servers, routers, switches, WLANs, data center storage, artificial intelligence (Deep Learning), advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), AR/VR imaging, industrial automation and other high performance applications. The 64-bit architecture enables a vastly expanded address space of over 18 exabytes demanded by these applications. "In its 12th year, the long-running, very successful Andes Embedded Forum is the venue for major announcements from Andes and its partners," said Andes President, Frankwell Jyh-Ming Lin. "The forum begins in Shanghai at the Parkyard Hotel on May 10th, then travels to Beijing on May 12th and finally to Hsinshu, Taiwan on May 18th. Andes will introduce its most innovative ISA thus far in its history and we will become the first major CPU IP vendor to adopt RISC-V. The 64-bit ISA will deliver impressive performance at a high clock rate while still taking up a small number of gates compared with other offerings in its class. Most importantly, it will consume much less power per MHz than alternatives on the market. All the detail of the architecture will be presented at the Andes Embedded Forum. We invite you to attend one of the three venues." The V5 ISA is the most recent innovation in a line of architectures stretching back to the company's founding over a decade ago. Since that time, the company has enjoyed continued customer success with designs spanning a wide range of very high volume applications including WiFi, Bluetooth, touch screen controller, sensor hub, MCU, SSD controller, USB3.0 storage, and more. These design wins have resulted in a high-volume shipments of SoCs containing Andes IP. Today, over 2 billion units are in the market and the volume continues to grow each year. The new V5 ISA will serve the increased design activity in next generation applications, particularly augmented reality/virtual reality, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, artificial intelligence/deep learning, and the data centers forming the cloud computing needed to support them. The computing requirement in the data center, for example, is demanding the ability to address exabytes of memory space. This results from the need to store large data sets -- once contained in hard drives -- now held in local DRAM and flash for instantaneous access. To address this enormous memory space, a 64-bit ISA is an absolute necessity. Furthermore, to process the data requires the high performance provided by a 64-bit architecture. Finally, the SoCs being designed for these emerging applications will need multiple instances of these 64-bit CPUs. Being able to deliver high performance 64-bit computing in a small number of gates provides the new Andes V5 ISA a competitive advantage over others with higher gate counts. Andes Technology Corporation was founded in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan in 2005 to develop innovative high-performance/low-power 32-bit processor cores and associated development environment to serve worldwide rapidly growing embedded system applications. The company delivers the best super low power CPU cores with integrated development environment and associated software and hardware solutions for efficient SoC design. To meet the demanding requirements of today's electronic devices, Andes Technology delivers configurable software/hardware IP and scalable platforms to respond to customers' needs for quality products and faster time-to-market. Andes Technology's comprehensive CPU includes entry-level, mid-range, high-end, extensible and security families to address the full range of embedded electronics products, especially for connected, smart and green applications.
