Simens bBacked Company Claims Doubling of Solar Panel Efficiency

Breakthrough: World’s most efficient solar panel | SmartPlanet
North Carolina’s Semprius Inc. and its German backer Siemens said they have developed the world’s most efficient solar panel.
The prototype converts 33.9 percent of the sunlight that hits it into electricity, according to separate press releases from the two companies. That’s more than double the most efficient conventional photovoltaic (PV) module on the market, where performance tops out at 16 percent, Forbes magazine found late last year.
