September 27, 2016 Swiss startup doubles solar panel efficiency
Tokyo (SCCIJ) - With a yield of more than 36 percent, the solar panels developed by Swiss startup Insolight could deliver up to twice as much energy as traditional panels. The young Swiss company came up with a thin structure that directs the sun’s rays to the small surface area of very high performance solar cells. The result is a highly efficient flat photovoltaic system. Plants typically extract 5 percent of the sun’s energy, and most roof solar panels on the market extract between 14 percent and 22 percent, although figures vary. The result of Insolight's team has been validated by the Fraunhofer Institute, an independent lab based in Germany.[more]
