Cardiff sponsors solar energy contest
G24 Innovations Limited (G24i), a Cardiff -based company that aims to revolutionise solar power by leading the development of extremely lightweight, flexible solar cells, is to sponsor a competition with students from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design to design a product that uses the company's cutting edge technology.
The students, from the school Product Design Course, spent a day at G24i's facility, learning more about the technology that will be central to their forthcoming designs.
G24i's Cardiff site will be the first factory to mass produce
dye-sensitised solar cells, a technology that combines innovative material science and nanotechnology to generate renewable power in a process similar to photosynthesis. The facility will have an initial 30MW capacity with plans for an extension to 200MW by 2008.
