May 20th, 2019

A new solar cell design has been created by scientists at the University of Sheffield, in collaboration with energy technology company Power Roll. The result may prove that creating a new type of back-contacted solar cell is possible. A recent Off Grid Energy Independence article reported that researchers demonstrated how an architecture based on a […]
