Daily Energy Dump

Scientists in Oslo, Norway are on the cusp of making silicon-processed solar panels more efficient, cheaper and less wasteful.

An article today in Science Daily says we’re seven to eight years out from solar cells that be much cheaper and only 1/20th as thick as current solar cells.

The trick is to deceive the sunlight with microbeads.

Nanoscientists are currently developing the next generation of solar cells, which will be twenty times thinner than current solar cells.

Over 90 per cent of the current electricity generated by solar panels is made by silicon plates that are 200 micrometres thick. Several billion of these are produced every year. The problem is the large consumption of silicon: five grams per watt.

200 Alta power stations: This year, between five and ten billion solar panel units will be produced worldwide. This is the equivalent of 30 GW, or the capacity of 200 Alta power…
