3. Materials scientists at Moscow State University discovered four new compounds formed in the early stages of crystallization through a study on the formation of the light-absorbing layer of Pevorskite solar cells. Pevorskite solar cell is a next-generation device that converts solar energy into electricity. It has an efficiency of over 25% and far exceeds the efficiency of polycrystalline silicon-based solar cells that are widely used today.

5. Russian scientists have developed a compact hydraulic system that can be used to generate electricity in remote areas such as the Arctic. The device is composed of a turbine with a built-in pump, so it can be operated according to the free flow of the river, and it can be used for making small hydro power plants and irrigation.
