The Daily Fusion (Technorati Top 100 Green, Science) posted an article Tuesday about the possible next wave of solar-powered buildings.
Currently, the most popular way to power a building (or your home) by solar is to put the large black photovoltaic plates atop your roof. However, The Daily Fusion reports that scientists are working technology that will enable building designers more ways to use solar energy.
Imagine multicolored solar cells and the applications they could have on constructing state-of-the-art green buildings.
The article reads: "IOF physicist has been focusing for the last four years on nanostructured solar cells suitable for mass production ... Füchsel is currently working with his 'efficient design' team on the fundamentals of how to make colored solar cells from paper-thin silicon wafers. These will be particularly suited to designs for decorative façades and domestic roofs."
A colorful and solar future may be very near.
