Chinese scientists developing all-weather solar cell from graphene

Chinese Solar Panels

Scientists in China recently announced that they are working to develop a solar panel that can harness energy from raindrops.

Researchers from the Ocean University of China (located in Qingdao) announced their findings (A Solar Cell That Is Triggered by Sun and Rain) in a journal published by the German Chemical Society and said they plan to use graphene, which utilizes a thin layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb, to produce electricity derived from exposing the material to salty rainwater.
