Solar cell Current Affairs, GK & News
Chinese researchers have developed Graphene based all-weather solar cell that can generate electricity even during rains. The new approach for making an all-weather solar cell by using the ‘wonder material’ graphene was developed by the team of researchers from the Ocean University of China and Yunnan Normal University. Key facts The new all-weather solar cell ..
Suntech Power, the Chinese solar power manufacturer developed a new process for manufacturing silicon wafers for solar cells that could slash the cost of solar power by 10 to 20 %. It uses wafers made up of a single crystal of silicon. These are called “monocrystalline” wafers.
