Norwegian Company develops solar cell film that could turn wndows into solar panels!

Photovoltaic cells produce electricity directl... Image via Wikipedia
EnSol AS is situated in Bergen and together with he University of Leicester (UK) it is developing a thin film deposition system with nanocrystal source which will hopefully help it turn its patented nanotechnology into a working product. Their aim is to refine their PV cell technology so that it can achieve a cell efficiency of 20% or greater.

If they succeed, this will be a significant leap forward in PV technology and could revolutionise the industry. Claiming cost effective production via standard “spray on” magnetron techniques, it claims that this technology can realistically compete with existing established PV cell technology, a claim that isn't that far-fetched.

EnSol is aiming to construct a world class thin film deposition facility in Norway, based on experience gained working in collaboration with the Condensed Matter Physics group at the University of
Leicester (UK).
