Meet the new kid on the block – Perskovite

This guy is important to know, because it is this new material that is making the cost of solar drop and is the trump card in the solar revolution.

Why is Persokovite so amazing? – Imagine a world where solar panels were 100 times better and 1000 times cheaper and you will understand why scientists are so excited.

Traditionally solar panels are made out of silicon and they have a very low conversation rate, however perskovite is kicking silicons ass, efficiency records for perovskite cells turning sunlight to electricity have fallen so fast it is hard to keep up, and they can be produced without high-temperature processes or substantial quantities of expensive materials.
