In this video we look at how the miracle material Graphene is helping to improve solar cells.

Graphene is not only being used as a transparent and flexible electrode but also as the PV material.

Graphene- Perovskite cells have already shown Power Conversion Efficiency (PCE) of over 20% in the lab.

Doped Graphene is also showing remarkable properties as a charge holder

In this video the most efficient solar cells tested in the lab are listed as well as the most efficient panels available in the market.

The list includes all major PV technologies such as crystalline silicon, organic solar cells, Multi-junction solar cells, Cd Te, Ga As and Pervoskite etc.

It should be noted that NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) updates the well known efficiency chart for PV lab efficiencies every 6 months. The values listed here in are referenced from the NREL efficiency chart and from own research. The chart can be referenced from the following link:

Note that efficiency noted in the lab will always be higher than practical efficiency.
