Developing very cheap photovoltaic cells based on dye sensitised titanium dioxide chemistry. The product would be a glass-metal foil or glass-plastic sandwich, half the weight of a silicon product of a similar size.
The proposal consists in the development of consumer batteries with high energy density (more than 800 wh/l) using new technology in the field that involves obtaining sodium borohydride gels as active anodic material.
The project will drastically improve an existing sodium borohydride (sbh) production method. Together with additional ip owned by the main participant, the project will enable usage of sbh as hydrogen storage material for automotive and other applications.
Orionsolar will be improving their 15cm x 15cm single cell design and assembly to give 7% efficient pv dye cell modules in fully scaled-up manufacturing processes. Solaronix will be scaling up their narrow strip monolithic module design to 30cm x 30cm and then 90cm x 60cm size with 6% efficiency.
To develop a solar power system floating on water and to demonstrate how it can bring a substantial decrease in electricity production costs. Key elements are concentration of solar energy on solar cells and an innovative cooling system using water as a cold source.
To develop and demonstrate prototype production equipment for an economically viable module assembly line, which is suitable for high handling yield and high throughput of thin and high-efficiency solar cells, and which is ready to be put on the market at project-end.
Developing metal offset plates for conventional printing presses designed for ink jet ctp (computer to plate) imaging using off the shelf ink jet printers. The plates pre-press preparations are process-less, chemistry-free and daylight, mid-high quality printing - 175lpi stochastic, 20,000 copies.
The project is focused on the development of a 5 kwe stirling dish employing a new concept of concentrator, a new generation of solar receiver that may include hybrid operation and/or storage option, and a free piston stirling engine; allowing a reduction of the system's cost down to 2 euros/watt.
Entrosys employs space-age solid-state technology to provide a novel personal air-conditioning system. Our first focus is to provide a solution for motorcycle riders. The system creates a comfortable microclimate for the user within his riding gear in hot and cold weather conditions.
Development of breakthrough applications for integrating a microturbine with a solar power system, by cooperation with an italian team, experienced in aspects of microturbine development, fabrication and installation, and an israeli team with extensive expertise in solar energy technology
