“We are excited by this new invention on transparent solar cells, which applied our recent advances in transparent conducting windows (also published in ACS Nano) to fabricate these devices,” said Paul S.Weiss, CNSI director and Fred Kavli Chair in NanoSystems Sciences.



“The self-cleaning element eliminates the need for periodical maintenance and ensures the panels are always performing at maximum efficiency, leading to cost savings equivalent to a 3-5 year decrease in payback time,” said a spokesperson. This advance improves solar energy absorption by up to six percent, she added.

seems like a great year for energy tech :> 4%/6% now, soon 100% and then the fun startz xD

The Amrita Centre for Nanosciences has come out with what is billed as the world’s first integrated solar power storage tile using super capacitor.

It has been named ‘Amrita Smart’ and was launched on Friday at the ongoing International Conference, NANOSOLAR 2012, organised by the Amrita Centre for Nanosciences at the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences..

AWESOME!

Progress occurs when inventive people solve problems and create opportunities. Here are just a few of the breakthroughs that offer the brightest prospects for a future that leaves austerity and deprivation behind..

Most importantly, the game itself is no longer zero-sum. For the first time ever, we don’t need to figure out how to divide our pie into more slices, because we now know how to bake more pies. Everyone can win.

Because of the exponential growth rate of technology, this progress will continue at a rate unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before. What all this means is that—if the hole we’re in isn’t even a hole, the gap between poor and rich is not much of a gap, and the current rate of technological progress is moving more than fast enough to meet the challenges we now face—then the three most common criticisms against abundance should trouble us no more..
