Nanosolar: Cost Effective Solar Electricity Mass-Produced On A Global Scale

 “I have Blogged about this company before, what is new  with Nanosolar and Indium Gallium diSelenide CIGS flexible photovoltaic cell which falls under the umbrella of Printed electronics in general are getting ” commercialized by six organizations this year, from Honda Japan to Day Star Technologies in the US and Johanna Solar Technology in Germany”…. Read More  @ Printed electronics: looking at the big picture  “Nanosolar is a company based in Palo Alto, California, which uses an innovative technique to produce a kind of “solar film”. To make the film, Nanosolar prints CIGS (copper-indium-gallium-selenium) onto a thin polymer using machines that look like printing presses. There is no costly silicon involved in the process, and, ultimately, a solar cell from Nanosolar will cost about one-fifth to one-tenth the cost of a standard silicon solar panel. Nanosolar is only a few years old, but it has laid plans to take on multinational corporations, such as BP and Sharp, in the solar industry”…. <Via Tree Hugger>.
