Billion Dollar Breakthrough in Solar Efficiency?

Billion Dollar Breakthrough in Solar Efficiency?

| On 06, Mar 2013

For years, scientists have studied the potential benefits of a new branch of solar energy technology that relies on nanosized antenna arrays theoretically capable of harvesting more than 70 percent of the sun’s electromagnetic radiation and simultaneously converting it into usable electric power. ¬†For the record, the best we can do in commercial equipment today is around 20%.

“The solar power conversion device under development by this collaboration of two universities and an industry subcontractor has the potential to revolutionize green solar power technology by increasing efficiencies, reducing costs, and providing new economic opportunities,” Zimmerman says.
