Konarka: Giant Leap With Nano-based Solar Power

Konarka plans to have its solar-cell strips made of "semiconducting particles of titanium dioxide coated with light-absorbing dyes" on the market next year for both consumer products and the defense industry. As the world’s energy consumption grows, Konarka envisions building renewable, environment-friendly energy solutions that produce power from the sun for a World Without Wire. Today, technology analysts predict that all this fast-growing effort could quickly reach critical mass. And energy industry analysts have described Konarka-type technologies as part of a coming “tectonic shift’’ from fossil fuels to solar power.
