Smashing solar records with SunDrive’s Vince Allen

View descriptionShare

Australian solar pioneers have set a new efficiency benchmark with their next generation cells.

From humble beginnings in a garage in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, solar startup SunDrive is on a rapid rise.

In September, they announced that they had developed the world’s most efficient silicon cell, claiming the record from China’s Longi Solar.

The record is made more significant by the fact that SunDrive’s cells are manufactured with copper in the place of silver, a precious metal that is in limited supply.

This week co-founder and CEO Vince Allen joined Rewired to discuss their new world record for solar efficiency, and what it could mean for the transition to renewable energy.
