Directory:Nanotechnology / Directory:Solar > Directory:Solar Paint > Graphene paint just one atom thick could power homes of the future - Scientists at the University of Manchester have found a way to use thin slices of graphene to convert solar energy to direct current electricity. The discovery could lead to a whole array of new applications, including a whole new method of creating a sustainable energy source to power buildings of the future.

Directory:Nanotechnology / Directory:Solar > Directory:Solar Paint > Directory:Paintable plastic solar cells using quantum dots > Researchers develop paint-on solar cells - A team of researchers at the University of Notre Dame have developed an inexpensive solar paint that uses semiconducting nanoparticles to produce energy. "By incorporating power-producing nanoparticles, called quantum dots, into a spreadable compound, we've made a one-coat solar paint that can be applied to any conductive surface without special equipment."

Directory:Electric Vehicles / Directory:Solar > Directory:Solar Paint > Renault Solar Paint Car - An environmentally friendly design car of the Renault combines electric power and renewable energy from solar energy through nano solar paint on car. Renault 2010 Sand Jumper uses next-gen renewable energy technology and recycled, recyclable ecological materials. (Alt Energy News Apr. 27, 2010)

Plan to turn rooftops, walls and windows into cheap solar cells - Cheaper solar cells – roughly one-tenth the cost of current day prices – could be available within three to five years thanks to a manufacturing procedure that uses nanoparticle ‘inks’ to print them like newspaper or to spray-paint them onto the sides of buildings or rooftops. Even windows could become solar cells thanks to the semi-transparent inks. (GizMag August 25, 2009)


Colourful idea sparks renewable electricity from paint -If steel cladding weretreated with the photovoltaic material, and assuming a conservative 5% energy conversion rate, then we could be looking at generating 4,500 gigawatts of electricity through the solar cells annually. That’s the equivalent output of roughly 50 wind farms. (''Inhabitat'' March 24, 2008)

Directory:Paintable plastic solar cells using quantum dots - Paintable plastic solar cells that can harness the sun's invisible, infrared rays, and could deliver up to five times the power of the most advanced photovoltaic cells today. Combines specially-designed minute particles called quantum dots, three to four nanometers across, with a polymer to make a plastic that can detect energy in the infrared.

Silicon Nanocrystals for Superefficient Solar Cells - Silicon nanocrystals, also called quantum dots, could lead to a new type of solar cell that is cheap and twice as efficient, by producing 2 or 3 electrons per photon of high-energy sunlight. They could theoretically be 40% efficient in flat panels or over 60% efficient with concentrated sunlight. (MIT Technology Review Aug. 15, 2007)

Cyrium Technologies - Developing a photovoltaic solar cell technology using semiconductor quantum dot NanoTechnology to increase photovoltaic solar cell efficiency by 40% above the state-of-the-art products.

Quantum Dot Recipe May Lead To Cheaper Solar Panels - Scientists at Rice University have developed a new method for cost-effectively producing four-armed (tetrapod) quantum dots that have previously been shown to be particularly effective at converting sunlight into electrical energy. Their method achieves 90% tetrapods, whereas the best previous method only got as high as 30%. (Science Daily May 4, 2007) (See Slashdot discussion)
