The purpose of this paper is briefly to explain the relationship between chemistry, solar cell and social responsibility. Energy is essential for economic and social development. The world is under the threat of global warming because of using non-renewable energy such as fossil fuels. The non-renewable sources of energy will be depleted one day. So, it is needed to use renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal energy. Renewable energy which has low carbon dioxide emission is clean energy. The solar energy is the major renewable energy source. The ultimate source of all energy on earth is the sun. Solar energy comes directly from the power of the sun and is used to produce electricity, to produce heat, and for light. Solar energy is easily available all around the world. Solar cells, also called photovoltaic cells, are electronic devices used to generate electricity directly from sunlight. Chemistry knowledge and chemicals are used in preparation of solar cell devices. Solar cells which have high energy efficiency are used to make life easier in modern society consuming large amounts of energy.
