New Green power record.

European scientists have set a new record for efficiency in turning solar power into electricity.

Scientists of the Commission-financed project FULLSPECTRUM have developed photovoltaic (PV) multi-junction (MJ) solar cells which are able to convert 39.7% of the energy of sun light into electricity. This is the highest percentage ever reached in Europe, according to researchers after their final workshop today in El Escorial, Spain.

It’s expensive, it works in space… And it’s a great development of new solar technology that will help make solar cheaper and more readily available.
