Graphene layer lets solar panels generate energy from raindrops

Researchers in China have developed Graphene solar panels that can generate energy from raindrops. The solar panels with a respectable 6.53 percent solar-to-electric conversion efficiency allows generation of power during periods of clouds and rain. [Read More]

By By Kesavan Unnikrishnan Mar 17, 2017 in Environment Researchers in China have developed Graphene solar panels that can generate energy from raindrops.
The solar panels with a respectable 6.53 percent solar-to-electric conversion efficiency allows generation of power during periods of clouds and rain.
The technology Graphene, known as wonder material is extracted from graphite, the material used in pencils.
These newly designed solar panels could provide a boost to solar cell technology which currently only works when there is ample sunlight.
