All solar efficiency breakthroughs since 1975 on a single chart

All solar efficiency breakthroughs since 1975 on a single chart | green infographics | Scoop.it

The National Center for Photovoltaics (NCPV), which is part of the U.S. National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), maintains a chart that shows efficiency records for all kinds of research solar technologies of all types (thin-film, single-junction cells, multi-junction cells, organic cells, quantum dot cells, etc). Above is the latest version as of April 2013.


On it, you can see the steady pace of progress and how different solar cell compositions compare to each other. Of course, these record-breaking cells were probably very expensive to manufacture and made only in very small quantities, so don't expect to see efficiency numbers like these in commercial PV... But over time, yesterday's record-breakers become today's mass-market products, so all this progress isn't just for the sake of breaking records either.

Temperatures rose in each of the continental 48 states since 1970.

In the United States, the first five months of 2012 have been the warmest on record. More than 100 cities out of 150 recorded have seen their warmest recorded temperatures.

Just a quick glance at this chart gives a good insight into how steamy our cities have been so far this year. But while this year is off-the charts it's not a surprise. We've seen temperatures on the rise for decades, as a new report from Climate Central illustrates.
