A new world record for solar efficiency

A new world record for solar efficiency

Engineers at Australia’s University of New South Wales (UNSW) have set a new world record for solar efficiency. Using normal sunlight without concentrators, they achieved 34.5 percent conversion efficiency. This is a significant leap—44 percent better than the previous record of 24 percent which was held by Alta Devices in the United States. This new accomplishment proves that photovoltaic cells still have room for improvement, and demonstrates that with further development, solar energy systems could be more efficient and therefore less expensive.
