Solar for Your Industry Makes Sense !

Manufacturing industry accounts for about one third of total energy use
worldwide –mostly related to the production of energy-intensive commodities
such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, chemicals and petrochemicals.
In these sectors, energy costs constitute a large proportion of total production
costs, so managers pay particular attention substantial cost reductions to
become competitive.

New Solar Panel Technology Stylish and Sustainable

The new cell technology combines nanoparticles and organic dyes that can be produced in any number of colors and designs.

The key component of the new modules is an organic dye which in combination with nanoparticles converts sunlight into electricity. Due to the small size of the nanoparticles, the modules are semi-transparent. This aspect makes them well suited for façade integration. The new solar cells are being developed by members of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, who will be presenting their new technology in Tokyo at Nanotech 2008, the world’s largest trade fair for nanotechnology.
