Spray-On Solar Panels

by Editor on August 23, 2014

Is it possible to turn any window into a solar power pv cell?  Norwegian company EnSol has patented a spray-on film that turns windows into solar panels.

Spray-on solar panels are a new technology first developed in Australia. The solar cells are made of quantum dots, which are nanoparticles that behave as semiconductors. The spray-on film saps up solar energy and could eventually be applied to windows or any surface for that matter.

A team of scientists at the University of Sheffield are the first to fabricate perovskite solar pv cells using a spray-painting process.

Experts from the University’s Department of Physics and Astronomy and Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering have previously used the spray-painting method to produce solar cells using organic semiconductors – but using perovskite is a major step forward.

While most solar cells are manufactured using energy intensive materials like silicon, perovskites, by comparison, requires much less energy to make. By spray-painting the perovskite layer in air the team hope the overall energy used to make a solar cell can be reduced further.
