Perovskites for cheaper and more efficient solar panels

Perovskites

Materials that may be cheaper and more efficient than silicon at converting the sun’s energy into electricity are the key to the next generation of solar panels, scientists say. Perovskite, named for a 19th century Russian count, is now the most promising material for solar cells. Panels based on perovskites are surprising researchers by efficiently […]

The first solar battery in the world says it works with light and air

solar battery

Scientists at Ohio State University (OSU) have made a dye-sensitized solar cell that gathers its power by using air to dissolve and re-form lithium peroxide. The researchers think that the gadget, that immediately merges a battery and a solar cells in one, is able to bring down energy costs by 25%. “The state of the […]
