Organic Solar Cells
Organic solar cells are a type of solar cell which use a process similar to photosynthesis in plants to produce solar energy. But instead of converting sunlight to glucose, these solar cells convert sunlight into solar energy. In comparison to traditional silicon solar cells, organic solar cells are much less efficient. Some estimates show that they are half as efficient. However, new research has been able to pinpoint a specific area where these cells lose efficiency. This could pave the way to overcome this inefficiency in the future, in order to scale up production and make this technology more mainstream the field of renewable energy.
