Japan’s Kaneka Company has developed new silicon-based solar cells that have registered high efficiency in solar power generation. This type of energy is one of the best sources of renewable energy in the ecosystem, which has prompted scientists to develop tools to benefit from it. As some individuals install solar panels on their homes, as well as governments set up smart networks for that, in addition to some companies such as Google, which is currently working on renewable energy and help users to take advantage of them.
According to the Dutch TNW website, the new silicon-based solar cells are capable of achieving spectacular results of up to 26.3% of efficiency, while the old solar cells were able to take advantage of 25.6% of the energy from the sun, but most of the cells available for commercial use Were achieving about 20%.
“As we begin to rely on solar energy, solar panels should become better,” said Kanika. However, many reports indicated that, despite developments in the solar cell industry, efficiency could never exceed 29%, while the proportion of dependence on solar energy by 2050 is expected to reach more than 20% of the total world demand for primary energy.
