Renowned Pakistani solar scientist advocates increased solar energy usage.

Renowned Pakistani solar scientist Yasir Siddique, a world record holder, emphasizes the importance of expanding solar technology in Pakistan for a sustainable future.

Yasir Siddique, currently based in South Korea, recently achieved two world records in solar cell efficiency with his solution-processed cells called CISSe.

His groundbreaking solar cell technology aims to support global governments and organizations in implementing clean energy programs to combat climate change.

Yasir’s team, from the Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER) and Daejeon University of Science and Technology (DUST), continuously works on improving CISSe efficiency.

Compared to traditional silicon solar cells (15-20%) or concentrated mirror cells (around 40%), Yasir’s tandem solar cell stands as the most efficient one yet.

Yasir highlights Pakistan’s immense solar energy potential, with over 300 sunny days per year, making it the third-most suitable country for solar energy production.

Despite this potential, Pakistan ranks 44th in solar energy dependency, while Yasir notes a 50% growth in the country’s solar sector due to favorable policies.

However, recent tax impositions on the solar energy sector have hindered its development.

Yasir emphasizes the urgent need to transition to solar energy and urges Pakistan to increase its utilization to contribute towards a carbon-neutral world by 2050.
