Thin Film Solar Cells: New World Record for Solar Cell Efficiency

CIGSIn a remarkable feat, scientists at Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, have developed thin film solar cells on flexible polymer foils with a new record efficiency of 20.4% for converting sunlight into electricity. The cells are based on CIGS semiconducting material (copper indium gallium (di)selenide) known for its potential to…. <read more>

  1. 60 years ago I saw my first TV, my Dad bought a TV first in the road with 10 inch screen and huge wooden cabinet which probably was equivalent to one whole tree. Now look what has happened to the TV and that will be the same for all forms of renewable Energy.
    We just need people who can to invest in the future for everyone to benefit as technology develops the science.
    Anyone who can needs to go solar, heat transfer or bio-mass right now, Get good advice and make the leap.
    Come along to the Renewables Exhibition in Stur on the 16th and find out from specialists what is the best solution for you.
    The time is NOW.
