A nanospray to turn steel roofs into solar collectors
This would be accomplished through Dye sensitised semiconductor cells (DSSCs) based on nanocrystalline titania sandwiched between oxide glass. This product has been tested to achieve efficiencies of up to 11%
The project brings together leading researchers from the British universities of Bath, Bangor, Swansea and the Imperial College. It may help deliver a unique solution to cost-effective passive generation of electricity from the walls and roofs of buildings.
Corus Colors is the World’s second largest producer of coil coated materials, part of the Corus Steel Group (recently acquired by Tata Steel).
