Scientists from the National University of Science and Technology (MISiS) in Russia and the Tor Vergata University of Romehave found out that a microscopic quantity of two-dimensional titanium carbide called MXene significantly improves collection of electrical charges in a perovskite solar cell, increasing the final efficiency above 20%.
MiaSolé Hi-Tech Corp, a USA-based wholly-owned subsidiary of Hanergy dedicated to providing CIGS production turn-key factories and manufacturing CIGS flexible solar panels, and Solliance, a public-private partnership of companies, R&D institutes and universities from the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany, announced they have established a new world record power conversion efficiency of 23% on a flexible solar cell.
Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) have broken new ground in solar cell energy efficiency and in the process provided a glimpse of the technology’s future. The researchers have set a new record of 21.6 per cent efficiency, the highest ever achieved for perovskite cells above a certain size.
Solar technology company based in Poland, Saule Technologies, a pioneer in the development of solar cells based on perovskites by inkjet printing them on ultra-thin, flexible foils, announced it has reached the point of technology development to be able to print its flexible, lightweight, semi-transparent, single junction solar modules with a consistent 10% efficiency.
Researchers from the TU/e have discovered that adding a small amount of fluoride to perovskite solar cells significantly increases their stability.
