New Form Of Solar Energy To Enter US Market

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on abc News.

This is the first few paragraphs.

Organic energy is getting a jolt with the launch of GO-OPV’s ORENgE system in North America.

Organic energy uses a thin film panel to capture the sun’s rays and converts it to power, similar to traditional solar power.

The panels could be used for windows or trucks, phone or computer chargers, or it can be a building-integrated photovoltaics in glass.

This sounds good to me!

My South-facing windows make air-conditioning a must in my house.

But my air-conditioning broke in 2018 and no-one has been able to fix it!

This technology would sort it out in a trice!

Conclusion

This is technology to watch.

  1. If by ‘organic energy’, they mean ‘organic thin-film PV’, https://www.polysolar.co.uk/ in Cambridge produce solar glass from organic PV. ATM this is not fully transparent, and the glass comes in fixed-size panels which can’t be cut, so it’s not really suitable for retrofitting windows. https://www.heliatek.com/ in Dresden recently started mass production of their rolls of organic PV; https://www.solivus.com/ have distribution rights in UK, and are focusing on commercial roofs and arenas/stadiums for the moment. I guess these things will be mainstream in 5-10 years time.
