Energy Efficiency | Double-glazed Solar Panels: New Approach to Solar Energy Efficiency…

Upon acknowledging that at present, the improvement of solar cell’s efficiency has already reached its maximum with only gradient increases if any, the two physicists from the University of Warwick, Coventry took the works of Einstein and Tesla as inspiration and came up with a new design of solar panels – double-glazing. The proposed solar panel design of Dr. Gavin Bell and Dr. Yorck Ramachers is fundamentally similar with a double-glazed window, which is composed of two glass layers and the space between them is filled with an inert gas. Whereas existing solar panels use vacuum as the filler between two layers, the new design uses an inert gas as the filler, acting as an additional insulation. Replacing the vacuum with gas could make manufacturing cost lower. How does the double-glazed solar panel work? When the sunlight strikes it, electrons are ejected from the photoca...
