‘Perovskite cells now have efficiencies of up to 19 per cent. This is not so far behind that of silicon at 25 per cent – the material that dominates the worldwide solar market.’
- Scientists from Sheffield have developed low-cost, spray-on solar cells
- They are applied to surfaces in a similar way to paint or graphic printing
- The spray-on cells are made perovskite that produces very little waste
- They can be easily mass produced, meaning manufacturing costs are low
Forget large, bulky solar panels. Soon anything from clothing to cars could be used to harness energy from the sun.
Scientists from Sheffield have developed low-cost, spray-on solar cells that can be applied to surfaces in a similar way to paint.
The cells are made of a material called perovskite, which is cheap to produce and, when used as a spray, produces very little waste.
This, along with the fact the spray can be easily mass produced, means manufacturing costs are low, which ultimately means prices would be lower for customers.
In theory, the spray could be used on any surface that the cells can stick to, however, its efficiency is likely to be affected on flexible surfaces, or fabrics.
