The amount of sunlight that solar cells can convert into usable electricity is a big deal when it comes to the real benefits of solar power. As technology advances, conversion rates climb steadily and the world record for solar cell efficiency has been bested several times in recent years. Now, a pair of engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) have raised the bar with a whopping 34.5 percent sunlight-to-electricity conversion rate, blowing the previous record out of the water sky.
