Latest Invention: Cheap, Flexible Solar Cells for Your Windows

Share

Eight19 is a startup firm that was established to provide new inventions in the field of solar energy.

The company represents a team-work of Cambridge University's Cavendish Laboratory and UK environmental group the Carbon Trust. Eight19 is currently working on a revolutionary organic solar photovoltaic technology that could help in the near future make the process of solar cell installation much easier and cheaper.

The new solar panels will be made from a flexible transparent material that could be easily unrolled. The company's representatives say that organic photovoltaics (OPV) based on organic solar PV technology work differently from solar conductors - they function on a principle that is similar to photosynthesis in plants.

In the end the company plans to obtain solar panels that will look like see-through plastic sheets. The sheets could then be easily mounted on windows.

Besides being easier to install, the flexible solar panels will also be much cheaper than the solar panels used today, reports The Independent.
