Solarmer Breaks Efficiency Record For Plastic Solar Panels


Solarmer Energy Inc. says it has become the world-record holder for plastic solar cell and plastic solar panel efficiencies.

At this year's Large-area, Organic and Printed Electronics Conference, Solarmer announced that it achieved 6.77% plastic solar cell efficiency, certified by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and 3.9% plastic solar panel efficiency, certified by the Newport Corp.

Solarmer is currently developing transparent, lightweight, flexible, plastic solar panels, which the company says will cost a fraction of what silicon solar panels cost.
