Green innovations for a sustainable future: Solar Panels

Green innovations for a sustainable future: Solar Panels

Solar panels are quite expensive and inefficient, well that’s true a decade ago or so. Solar technology has grown significantly for the past years, solar cells are way more energy-efficient and manufacturing solar panels now cheaper with innovations in our technology. From the year 2000, prices on solar panels have dropped  Read more »

Nanoflowers As Solar Cells For Energy Storage?

Nanoflowers As Solar Cells For Energy Storage?

Researchers from North Carolina State University have created flower-like structures out of germanium sulfide (GeS) – a semiconductor material – that have extremely thin petals with an enormous surface area. The GeS flower holds promise for next-generation energy storage devices and solar cells.

Solar Technology : Low-cost Printable Solar Panels

Nannosolar’s thin-film solar printing technology produceslow-cost solar cells and panels. Using nano technology they grow thin-filmsolar cells (nanoparticle ink) that can be printed on glass or flexiblematerials, which can be manufactured at a lower cost than the conventionalvacuum panels. This technology has been recognized as the first solartechnology that is  Read more »
