Swedish scientists smash solar cell efficiency ‘world record’

Researchers at Uppsala University in Sweden have created a new world record by designing a CIGS solar cell with 23.64 percent energy conversion efficiency. The previous record was held by the Solar Frontier, Japan, whose CIGS solar cell recorded 23.35 percent solar efficiency.

Renewable energy technologies such as solar have received a major fillip with the world looking to reduce carbon emissions. Even after a reduction in costs of manufacture and installation, solar energy caters to just six percent of global electricity demand.
