Private and public organizations in the renewable energy sector around the world have been involved in intensive research to drive up the efficiency of solar panels. In the past 30 years, we have seen firms come up with several innovations that have gradually boosted the efficiency of solar panels. Organizations have been developing new technologies based on novel solar cell architectural designs and innovating materials that provide more efficient energy conversion. These efforts have reduced the price of solar power significantly. In 1977, the cost of solar panels was US$76.67/watt and today, it is just US$0.613/watt.
