Hybrid solar battery generates electricity due to heat and light

Scientists have developed a new hybrid photovoltaic cell that uses sunlight and heat to create more useful energy than ever before. The result of the work in this direction is a hybrid solar battery that can give 5 times greater direction compared to the already present in the market counterparts. The product shows a growth efficiency of 20%.published

The breakthrough was achieved through the use as the substrate polymer film PEDOT:PSS, which is heated when exposed to light and can be used to generate thermoelectricity using the additional thin-film pyroelectric material. Above the layers of these materials were placed in a photovoltaic cell. The researchers note that a key disadvantage of the product is its expensiveness, but they hope that the advantage of record high efficiency outweigh this disadvantage.

P. S. And remember, only by changing their consumption — together we change the world! ©
