Breakthrough Solar Panel Research published in Nature
Printer-friendly version

Thanks to research funded in part by Pennergy, low-cost state of the art solar panels could be coming our way in the future.

Andrew Rappe, Peter Davies, Jon Spanier, along with research specialist Ilya Grinberg, have recently published a study in Nature that outlines exciting new developments they have refined in solar panel structures. In a marketplace where silicon based models are predominantly used, they were able to develop a new class of ceramic material comprised of potassium, niobium, barium, and nickel.

Their study was recently published online by the journal Nature, and can be found by clicking here.
