Spray-on Solar Cells from Mitsubishi

August 29th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

You probably don't think of cleantech when you think of Mitsubishi, but it's been pushing its name into the field lately. A couple years ago, it broke the PV solar cell efficiency record. This year, it unveiled solar-powered EV charging stations at it headquarters in Cypress, California. And I've just read that it is developing spray-on solar cells

Quantum Dot Solar Cell Improvements Show Remarkable Potential to Balance Solar Performance & Cost

September 28th, 2011 | by Glenn Meyers

As far as innovation on the technology front, this one is a winner. In tabulating efficiency ratings, however, quantum cells don't seem to perform as well as either silicon-based or CIGS solar cells. This may soon change. Nature Materials writes that a new efficiency record for wrapping colloidal quantum dot solar cells may represent a step towards narrowing the gap
