Toward super efficient solar panels

I came across two news today that could revolutionize solar panels by drastically increasing their efficiency. Given the current potential of this energy source with today’s technology, tomorrow will be bright for solar !

To the MIT Technology Review :” Replacing flat panels with three dimensional structures (see left) can significantly change the economics of solar power generation, say engineers. “

The second news that came to me was from the University of Texas where a scientist found a way to increase the efficiency of solar cells to 66 percent, compared to around 20 % today. (via Grist)
