Watering solar cells makes them more powerful
Perovskite solar cells are the rising star in the photovoltaic landscape. Since their invention, less than ten years ago, their efficiency has doubled twice and it is now over 22% - an astonishing result in the renewable energy sector. Taking the name 'perovskite' from the light-harvesting layer that characterises them, these solar cells are lighter, cheaper, and more flexible than the traditional crystalline silicon-based cells.
