    Graetzel’s Win Says DSC Opens Unprecedented Possibilities

    October 2012 (Dyesol)

    “The 2012 Swisselectric Research Award has been awarded to the Chairman of Dyesol’s Technical Advisory Board, Professor Michael Graetzel, for his outstanding research in the field of electrochemical energy conversion and invention of cheap, low-light optimised Dye Solar Cell (DSC) technology…Prof Graetzel is Chairman of Dyesol Ltd’s Technical Advisory Board and has played an important role in shaping DSC technology since he invented…[it] in the early 1990s.

    “…[The technology opens possibilities for photovoltaic integration in building products and portable devices]…Dyesol Ltd – an Australian technology company focused on commercialising DSC technology…[supplies] Tata Steel Europe, Pilkington North America, and Timo Technology…[and is] moving towards mass market commericalisation of DSC enabled steel roofing material and DSC enabled windows and glass building façade…”

    “…[DSC is applied to a glass, metal or plastic substrates as a series of very thin layers. Added together these materials produce an electric current when hit by sunlight or indoor/artificial light]…

    “…[I]t works well in low-light conditions…[W]hen traditional photovoltaic technology isn’t producing much energy at dawn, dusk, cloudy days, winter, indoors and other low-light conditions – DSC photovoltaics is the technology of choice…Dye Solar Cell technology also uses non-toxic materials and is manufactured using lower amounts of energy…[making it] environmentally friendly…”
