green light

Cheap and efficient solar power has now become much more available thanks to the Grätzel cell, according to Technology Review. Manufacture of the cells (which are much more efficient and cheaper to produce than the traditional silicon cells) has begun. Also it is possible to integrate the cells into buildimng materials and windows, obviating the need for special additional structures.

I did a year of a PHP researching these, they are very efficient, very cheap the most expensive part being the coated glass which is basically the same as Pilkington K glass (stuff to keep the heat in your house).

Very cool.
