Hotter Temperatures Could Reduce Efficiency Of Solar Power

In a near-future environment where the amount of sunlight hitting the Earth’s surface is set to increase, using photovoltaic cells to generate 100% clean electricity would seem like an ideal solution for our growing power demands.

However, solar panels are notoriously sensitive to temperature and now a new study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reveals how global warming will reduce output across the globe by 2100.
