The Solliance consortium achieved a 29.2% record efficiency for the solar cell in November 2021, from just 28.7% in March 2020. In recent months, it increased the perovskite cell for the tandem device from 17.8% to 19.7%.
Also on the rise: Flyover footage of a 6.5 MW community solar project in Maine. The PV Magazine states of solar tour stops in North Carolina. And more.
Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory made a breakthrough in high efficiency and stability for perovskite solar cells.
Researchers built and deployed a nine perovskite solar panel array that showed little generation loss due to high temperatures, and performed better over time than researchers expected.
A novel electrochemical robotic arm is under development at the University of Arizona to identify perovskite defects during manufacturing rather than after to improve durability.
Also on the rise: Battery storage use more than tripled in the US in 2021. One-third of global PV manufacturing capacity is at medium or high risk of bankruptcy, IEA says. And more.
The new world record was independently certified by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the United States.
A team at Princeton University developed a new technique to accelerate solar cell longevity testing, while concurrently discovering a layer, only a few atoms in thickness, which is credibly projected to support perovskites lasting thirty years.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory developed a tandem perovskite solar cell that tackles problems with stability and boosts efficiency.
Efforts are underway to overcome technical barriers and other challenges in commercializing perovskite technology for the solar energy sector.
