    i think what you are missing is that the technology you are referencing is scientific research, not commercially available technology – until those productsare brought to market they essentially do not count – there have been other high-efficiency success stories that have failed to make it to market for one reason or another . . .
    until it is commercially available i cannot put it on a building, in a car, or anywhere else, making Sanyo\\\\\\\’s offering the most efficient available – unless i am missing something . . .

    I’m confused… 20.7 percent is the “world’s most efficient”?

    What about Spectrolab’s 40 percent efficient solar panel –

    Or Caltech’s new solar tech that converts 85 to 96 percent –

    Am I missing something here?
