High efficiency solar panels

High efficiency solar panels

The primary drawback of most solar energy production processes is the lack of efficiency for most modern-day solar cells to be able to convert solar power into usable electricity. Virtually, all commercially available solar cells usable in today’s market can convert less than 20% of the energy that they absorb into usable electricity. This drawback means that solar cells have a lowly efficiency and feasibility as a source for reliable ongoing power production and has caused them to be criticized worldwide as a reasonable alternative to other energy producers. Further, as solar cells become even less efficient as they become hotter this rate can decline throughout hotter seasons and in areas with regular extreme sunlight exposure.

To combat this growing sentiment scientists have regularly been researching into various types of energy cells that they can use to increase the efficiency of the energy conversions solar cells regularly face. This is led to the birth of what many people describe as high-efficiency solar cells that can operate at over double the efficiency of standard conventional models. This means that according to many reports high-efficiency solar cells can successfully convert over 40% of the energy that they absorb into usable electricity that can be applied to various purposes around the world.

In terms of real-world applications, this means that solar cells are finally becoming a feasible means for efficient energy production so long as the cost of producing these high-efficiency solar cells can be controlled and maintained at a low enough rate to make this viable product on the market. If so this can mean both substantial growth for the solar energy market as well as practical applications worldwide as alternative energy generators to assist people with controlling their energy consumption and dependence upon other fuels.

It is expected that additional research into further high-efficiency solar cells will continue to take place over the coming years in order to help further improve their energy conversion efficiency and develop an energy production source that can compete with alternatives currently on the market, such as wind turbines (both traditional horizontal axis and new vertical axis models). While it is unclear at this time as to how scientists can further develop the efficiency of the solar cell is speculated that additional research into the quantum mechanics of natural photosynthetic processes that allow plants to have up to a 99% energy efficiency transfer rate to achieve photosynthesis will benefit the solar industry.

As biological quantum mechanics is a new field that was only recently pioneered by researches after discovering the role quantum physics plays on biological organisms, it may be quite some years before this can be applied in an industrial or commercial sense to the solar energy community the possibilities that it holds are interesting researchers worldwide. If it can be feasibly adapted to high-efficiency solar cell technology to further bolster the energy production capabilities of the cells then solar power may soon find dominance in the world market. In the meantime even with high-efficiency solar cells able to operate at over 200% the rate of their predecessors the global market for these techniques is still fluctuating and will most likely not stabilize until further advancements are made.
