Another Jump in Thin-Film Solar Efficiency

Other kinds of solar cells have higher efficiencies, but the importance of thin-film efficiency has to do with economics of manufacture. Thin-film solar cells are inexpensive to produce, and, because of their physical flexibility, they are adaptable for use in a range of applications. Thin-film solar cells also offer perhaps the best possibility for cheaper-than-coal electricity.
