Most Efficient Solar Cells will be Mass-produced in 2011

Bookmark and Share
Current solar cell efficiency record held by Spectrolab with its multi-junction solar cells is planned to be mass production in 2011 by Boeing subsidiary Spectrolab. The most efficient solar cell called C3MJ solar cells will have an average conversion efficiency of 39.2 percent.

Previously, Spectrolab has achieved the highest record of solar cell conversion efficiencies up to 41.6 percent with its high-efficiency multi-junction concentrator solar cells in the lab. While C3MJ produced in mid 2009 has reached the conversion efficiency of 38.5 percent can be upgraded. According to Russ Jones, Spectrolab director of CPV Business Development, the new cells' close similarity to the existing production cells so the current C3MJ customers can easily upgrade for more efficiency.

Spectrolab is one of the world's leading supplier of solar cells for satellites. Now Boeing is planning to transfer that success to the terrestrial solar cell market with new high-efficiency solar cells and its expected to be implemented in January 2011 with an average of 40 percent efficiency for production terrestrial solar cells.

Fo real ? omg, that's a tru (r)evolution if they manage 2 gather the same "rays" on terrestrial env. than in earth's orbit...
Better than military research bringin' progress it wd b the spatial 1 delivering... (ar the 2 dat diffrent, is anoda quest'ion)
Well, all i hop is it's cheap shyte :P (by dat i mean affordable by "every1"... no info about pricing yet?)
ps ; congrats for ur cool blog full of rare & precious infos, even if ur english is a bit approx :P, long time i been readin it epizdklly, but believ me it's good sheet!)

sry for dbl post but i found this (googletranslate if needed)

http://www.ddmagazine.com/1760-41-1-de-rendement-photovoltaique-les-chercheurs-recompenses.html

not 2 brag but usa arent the only innovatorz... not to mention i had the idea of coupling fresnel lens + solar cell like 3 yearz ago... so this sheet gotta b cheap! otherwise i'll mass produce it with the chinese & conquer afrika market to save this continent from energetic misery xD

oh & btw nuclear nrg efficiency= less than 33%...
solar facilities pawning nukecentralz ?
eureka mon !
Iran iz gonna feel dumb :P not talking about Areva & all the worldwide nuclear plants industry...
Ty for the info really.
happy new year ;] ... by using "depleted uranium " in dem dirty warz, were they thinking "let's waste this shit 2 hurt innocents cuz soon this will b worthless due to these new affordable superconcentratorphotovoltaic spacecells " i don't think so but still...

There is a huge variety of solar panel systems available. Some can cost tens of thousands of dollars, and some cost just a couple hundred. This means anyone can get into solar, there's an entry point for just about everybody.
