Scientists Make Bifacial Solar Cell with Record Power Outcome at 29%.
A team of scientists at the Australian National University have produced a bifacial solar cell with a front conversion effectiveness of 24.3% and a rear conversion efficiency of 23.4%, standing for a bifacial aspect of 96.3%. This performance represents a reliable power outcome of around 29%, well exceeding the performance of the most effective single-sided silicon solar cell. The outcomes have been individually verified by the CSIRO.
