A 'Tandem' Solar Cell Just Set a Brand New Efficiency Record

Scientists in Saudi Arabia have surpassed their own previous record by achieving an unprecedented efficiency of 33.7% in a tandem solar cell. Traditional silicon solar cells are known for their lower efficiency, typically converting only 18-22% of solar energy into electricity. To improve efficiency, researchers have been combining silicon with other materials, such as perovskite. In May 2023, a team from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia announced their new world record, breaking their own record of 33.2% set just two months prior. The breakthrough is expected to contribute to the advancement of green energy transition.
