Hybrid and Organic Solar Cells- An exciting Possibility

At present solar cells suffer from drawbacks such as low efficiencies and high costs. Green Clean Guide’s (GCG’s) editor managed to strike a conversation with a solar cell researcher who is presently working on hybrid solar cells. Following is the transcript of the conversation- Organic30

How grid interactive roof top solar PV systems work?

Many countries in the world are using conventional energy sources to fulfill their electricity requirements. Conventional power generation involves burning of fossil fuels that releases Greenhouse gases (GHGs) resulting in global warming and climate change.  Growing concern about climate change, countries around the world are30
