For years, perovskite solar cells have promised revolutionary improvements compared to traditional silicon solar panels. Perovskite could hold the key to higher efficiency at lower costs and in some cases has shown a 250% performance boost.
But scientists have been working on improving this solar energy tech since the 1990s. What do we have to show for it today?
This feels like yet another piece of over-hyped, planet-saving tech, perpetually 10 years away from adoption, right?
Maybe not. Undecided with Matt Ferrell explains.
