Photo Tahra Al Hammadi/Masdar Institute News. Full Screen. New solar cell is more efficient, costs less than its counterparts . Exposed in step like formation, layers of new photovoltaic cell harvest more of suns energy. What remains then, is a high efficiency tandem solar cell and a silicon germanium template, ready to be reused.
News New solar cell is more efficient, costs less than its counterparts While these semiconductors have reached higher efficiencies than silicon, the highest efficiency solar cells have been made by layering different semiconductor materials on top of each other and fine tuning them so that each can absorb a different slice of the
Jan 21, 2019Perovskite solar cells are potentially a high efficiency, low cost solar technology, and could be a future replacement for traditional silicon solar panels. Perovskite solar cells have promising potential. One of the most exciting parts of perovskites is their high efficiencies.
Perovskite boosts silicon solar cell efficiency. By Jon Cartwright 25 November 2015. comprising a 17% efficient silicon cell overlaid with a 15% efficient perovskite cell, in a monolithic arrangement. More News. Business US finalises guidance on biosimilars .

News Release Record Makes Thin Film Solar Cell Competitive with Silicon Efficiency March 24, 2008. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energys National Renewable Energy Laboratory have moved closer to creating a thin film solar cell that can compete with the efficiency of the more common silicon
Cummins Inc. (NYSE CMI) today announced that it is acquiring Silicon Valley based Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI), which designs and produces hybrid and fully electric power solutions for commercial markets. Adding EDI to the Cummins portfolio is the latest step forward in Cummins efforts to become a global electrified power leader.
Silicon technology is approaching its limits. Meanwhile, there's a continuing need for faster, more efficient circuits. One of the paths forward from this point is for researchers and companies alike to look towards different materials to produce the devices of tomorrow.
New Inverters Increase Grid scale PV Efficiency Wednesday 30th November 2016 High efficiency power conversion is a key PV plant requirement that is driving work by inverter manufacturers to improve performance while reducing Capex and long term maintenance costs.
The rows of blue solar panels that dot landscapes and rooftops are typically made out of crystalline silicon, the workhorse semiconductor found in virtually every electronic device. Their results were published in the journal Nature Energy earlier this month and are the subject of a "News and Views" article. "Good solar cell material
May 07, 2019In todays on demand digital world, buying and selling a home remains stubbornly, painfully analog. Most sales still begin with a real estate agent (and a 6% commission). Most still end in an office, with the two sides signing page after page of legalese. Silicon Valley wants to change that. Tech companies have begun to nibble
