Computational scientists from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) are working with two UK universities, using real experimentation and high quality computer modelling to accelerate solar cell technology.




​As the climate crisis intensifies, the switch to renewable energy has become a fundamental need for the future. To meet the UK's ambitious net zero targets and also keep up with modern demands, the research and development of clean energy solutions need to advance quickly.

Computational scientists from STFC Scientific Computing are collaborating with researchers at the Universities of Glasgow and Swansea, using computer models to improve the component of solar cells that absorbs energy.
