Bring On the Hybrid Solar Cells

"A team of Chinese engineers has developed a hybrid solar cell that can produce electricity come rain or shine, using the triboelectric effect to harvest energy from the movement of raindrops on its surface." Pretty cool.

I recently read in Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari that in just 90 minutes the earth receives 500 exajoules from the sun - equivalent to the annual energy consumption of all humans and industries in the world.

I know that there are obvious flaws in that comparison - but it does give some insight into the potential of these solar technologies in 10 or 20 years time if this progress continues....

Exciting times.
