Resource efficient all-weather solar panels

A team of Chinese scientists are now able to create electricity with the assistance of raindrops thanks to a thin layer of graphene they use to coat their solar cells. A layer of graphene one atom thick allowed an excessive amount of electrons to move as they wished across the surface for the panel. This new concept can guide the design of advanced all-weather solar cells.
