Self-cooling solar cells have greater power output, last longer
Researchers have developed a new coating that allows solar cells to cool themselves instead of requiring the use of coolants or ventilation, which can be water and energy intensive. Not only that, but the coating boosts power output and extends the life of the technology too.
Solar panels in full sun can easily reach temperatures of 130 degrees Fahrenheit and above. Those temperatures lead to efficiency loss and shorten the lifespan of the panels by breaking them down more quickly.
