They’re flexible, cheap to produce and simple to make – which is why perovskites are the hottest new material in solar cell design. And now, UNSW engineers have smashed the world efficiency record.

UNSW solar cell researchers have broken yet another world record, squeezing even more electricity from a beam of sunlight.

Leading scientists have called on both major political parties not to ‘unintentionally kill’ solar cell research in Australia by cutting off grant funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency.​

Australian engineers have edged closer to the theoretical limits of sunlight-to-electricity conversion by photovoltaic cells with a device that sets a new world efficiency record.

‘Zero-energy’ buildings – which generate as much power as they consume – are now much closer after a UNSW team achieved the world’s highest efficiency using flexible solar cells that are non-toxic and cheap to make.

The Prime Minister's recognition of UNSW as a world-record holder in solar cell research in his speech to the UN climate summit in Paris is shining a light on Australian innovation, says Ian Jacobs.

Bill Shorten

Australia will reach a target of 50% renewable energy "because research and demand is on our side”, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said today, during a tour of UNSW’s world leading solar research facilities.
