Hybrid solar cell captures energy from the sun and raindrops

IMG_5837
A new hybrid solar cell device can capture energy from the sun and from the movement of raindrops.As useful and ubiquitous as solar energy is becoming, it still has one major Kryptonite: gloomy weather. Now, 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.
