Researchers on the hunt for solar cells of the future


In the fight against climate change and high energy prices, solar energy from solar cells, as are popularly called the dark photovoltaic modules currently installed on so many Austrian roofs, is on the rise. However, in the coming years we will see this technology in many other forms. The state of the research at a glance.

How much of the incident sunlight is converted into electricity by a photovoltaic system depends on its efficiency. A few years ago, solar cells with an efficiency of 20 percent were considered very modern, now it is 23 percent. But the laboratories of international universities and the manufacturers of solar cells have come a long way: recently the first solar cells with an efficiency of more than 30 percent were presented. This is made possible by a promising material.
