CLN – Kelley Bergman – Solar Panel Efficiency Headed Towards 80 Percent – 2 April 2013

CLN3Current solar cell on panels widely distributed to retailers offer a maximum of 16-25 percent efficiency rate. Accordingly, they need to be quite large to obtain maximum power. Scientists at Stanford University have improved the efficiency of a revolutionary solar cell by around 100 times, but solar panels made with Lepcon or Lumeloid could turn 70 to 80 percent of the energy from sunlight they receive into electricity.
