NREL Creates Highest Efficiency 1-Sun Solar Cell

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) created a solar cell with a record 39.5% efficiency under 1-sun global illumination. This is the highest efficiency solar cell of any type, measured using standard 1-sun conditions.

Q CELLS and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin achieve record efficiency of 28.7% for 2-terminal perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell

The joint achievement from Q CELLS and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin sets a new world record for 2-terminal tandem solar cell efficiency based on perovskite top-cell technology and using a mass-production-ready silicon bottom cell based on Q.ANTUM technology.

NREL Researchers Point Toward Energy Efficiency Instead of Long-Term Storage

As more communities plan to eventually rely on 100% renewable energy, the researchers offer a strategy that could guide their paths-one that shifts away from long-duration storage.
