Flexible Solar Cells Could Be Woven Into Clothes Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden have achieved a reasonably high efficiency in flexible perovskite solar cells, making them stronger. In the future, they can be placed on any surface, even clothes.. Unlike classic silicon panels, perovskite wafers do not require high-precision processing and are applied to the substrate like typographic ink, which makes production easier and cheaper. These photocells have a less rigid shell, so they can be made as thin films that can cover office windows, vehicles, electronics and clothing.. In less than 10 years of studying this type of material, the researchers were able to achieve the same level of efficiency for converting light into electricity as in silicon cells (22.5%). However, the advantage of perovskites is that they can be placed in multiple layers, each of which uses a specific color format. This combination can…
