This could be a breakthrough that solar energy has been looking for. In its long history which included prohibitive cost and polluting production. Photovoltaic’s a new form of solar panel production improved vastly the materials used to be more efficient. Therefore brought down costs through efficiency gains. A new discovery has the potential to do that. An increase in the power output will equally boost efficency. A new discovery by a company spun out from Oxford University has introduced a new material. This has increased output by a third in experiments. The exciting potential is that it claims it can increase that further by 100% than currently obtained.
The malleable material discovered has the potential be wrapped around buildings. The gains from this are enormous as they will immediately increase usage through decreased cost. They will also encourage faster adoption to help the zero-carbon initiative.
