Singapore Scientists claim to have found a new, cheaper and easier way to manufacture solar cells – Perovskite solar cell. Perovskite is a calcium titanium oxide mineral composed of calcium titanate.
Researchers from Linköping University of Sweden and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) of China have overcome this by continuous research. These two research groups will be presenting their results in the high-profile journal Advanced Materials. The efficiency of polymer solar cells with fullerenes in converting the sun’s energy is approximately 11% and is considered to be good.
In the quest for cheaper and cleaner alternative energy source, solar energy is becoming very popular among homeowners today. However, the decision to use solar power as an alternative energy source to power homes can be challenging for homeowners who are new to solar power.
