  1. 1. Dr. Mazhar Bari, CEO SolarPrint Ltd ITRN 2011
  2. 2. The modern car? Role for Photovoltaics?
  3. 3. Photovoltaic TechnologyEvolution
  4. 4. Dye Solar Sensitised Cells Structure and OperationLight absorbed by dye > electron injected from excited dye into • Efficiency maintained in diffuse, layer of titanium dioxide (TiO2) artificial and low light conditionsredox couple effect generates • Wide acceptance angle electricity • No toxic or rare materialsNovelty: Solid state electrolyte • Can be made flexible and colourful
  5. 5. DSSC vs Si solar cells:Sunny and cloudy days
  6. 6. DSSC vs Si solar cells:Angular benefit
  7. 7. Diffuse irradiation/global Si: 0.6 kWh/m2/day DSSC: >20-30% higher
  8. 8. SMARTOP objectivesThe SMARTOP project aims at the development of a modular autonomous smart roof integratingconformable, lightweight and low cost solar panels used to recharge compact batteries suitable to driveinnovative devices for on board well being and energy saving.
