10% is low compared to the claim posted in another article. http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4207381/IMEC-reports-solar-cells I am wondering whether SunPower's claim is true or not. Any comment?

"500 grams per square meter, instead of today's customary 20-kg per square meter for silicon-based solar cells", what would be the cost differential? Any clues?

Lab numbers are : 2009 : 6.1% April 2010 : 7.7% and they claim to target 10+% No products until 2012, so still lab-level tech, but those numbers/trends are quite good. Of course, they are not the only roll-roll Solar PV solution, and lifetimes/degradations are only hinted at.

In terms of weight, organic solar cell looks like an attractive product. Does anyone know the efficiency of it compared to that of inorganic solar cell?

Organic, solar, what's not to like! Anyone knows any details of this technology to judge how sounds it is? Kris
