New solar cell innovation could lead to affordable solar energy

North Carolina researchers have developed a new perovskite solar cell method. Affordable solar energy may be a reality sooner rather than later as researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed a novel method for stabilizing perovskite solar cells. Perovskite solar cells have high solar-to-electricity conversion efficiencies at low production costs. Due to the fact that these solar cells hold a lot of promise in making cost-effective renewable energy, they have frequently been studied. However, in spite of their promising abilities of high solar-to-electricity conversion efficiencies and low production costs, their stability when exposed to oxygen and moisture remains a challenge to overcome. This stability issue needs to be resolved before these cells can truly be considered ready for the market.
