Working on a molecular level, scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the University of Colorado are developing a crystalline “sandwich” that could increase the efficiency of solar cells by 35%. The process is delicate but if it can be commercialized, it would bring down the cost of solar energy and give a big boost to ambitious international solar projects like DESERTEC and the Sahara Solar Breeder.
