Scientists have developed a new material that can make solar cells more affordable and efficient, an advance that may allow us to better utilise the most abundant renewable energy. The study, published in the journal Science, describes the new material called a tandem perovskite solar cell which could be used in full-sized solar panels in the near future.
“We are producing higher-efficiency, lower-cost solar cells that show great promise to help solve the world energy crisis,” said Yanfa Yan, a professor at University of Toledo in the US.
he efficiency of the new solar cell is about 23 per cent, according to the researchers including those from the US Department of Energy. Read More
