I used to work for the National Renewable Energy Lab.
The last thing I remember is the Photovoltaics
department being elated that their solar panel
research had elicited a new and improved
17-point-something percent efficiency. I was
underwhelmed. These are some of the most quoted
physicists in the world, and this was the result (I am
sure a lot of the the baby steps were due to
DOE/government meddling anyway).
Does anyone have any current numbers on this? I
haven't talked to anyone there for years. Thanks.
