Solar power has been around for a long time now but innovation is still strong and it can only get better. Solar panels convert energy from sunlight which on a residential property can be used as a source of energy to power the home as the electricity is available immediately. Current solar technology runs at about 20% efficiency meaning four fifths of the energy that passes through isn't converted to electricity. This waste has led to further development into solar as the future of energy.
Innovation in materials have led us to perovskites, a mineral class of materials that are being researched due to their flexibility and efficiency (researchers have managed to create solar paint from perovskite). Output from perovskite materials could reach 40%, double that of today's tech and it may even be possible to retrofit it to current solar technology increasing efficiency and output without the need for a full infrastructure change.
