In future, alternative energy will be
accepted more and more. And solar energy will in the long run become
the forerunner. Presently, the consumers do not consider that energy
should be produced where it is going to be used: at their houses, at
the factories etc. There are, however, signs that this will happen
To back out of nuclear energy is the right way. This energy is an interim solution, since uranium is a limited natural resource like, for expample, crude oil and gas. And there is no method to get rid of the nuclear waste. Another consideration is the transportation of current over long distance and costly transmission lines that are not nice to look at from a landscape protection standpoint. The same holds true for the wind turbines.
So - there is a lot that speakes for solar energy. The methods to produce solar power will become more effective and less expensive. In theory, it would be possible today to cover nearly 100 percent of the total energy consumption with solar power. In other words solar power could replace all other supply methods.
There is a large and growing market: broad indoor and outdoor applications and adoption of DSSC will displace many batteries and conventional solar modules.

June 10th 2010: The president of the Republic of
Finland, Tarja Halonen, handed the "2010 Millennium Technology Prize"
to Professor Dr. Michael Grätzel, Director of the Laboratory of
Photonics and Interfaces at "Ecole Polytéchnique Fédérale de
Outstanding features of these solar cells are: They produce electrical energy, even under low-light conditions and at low cost.
Extract from the award presentation: "The price/performance ratio of the dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) is excellent. The constraint of solar energy has traditionally been its price. "Grätzel-cells" provide a more affordable way of harnessing solar energy. The technology, often described as artificial photo-synthesis, is a promissing alternative to standard silicon photovoltaics. It is made of low-cost material and does not need an elaborate apparatus to manufacture... They (the solar cells) promise electricity-generating windows and low-cost solar panels. They have just made their debut on consumer products."

They are solar cells of the third generation. They not only are uniquely thin and extremely flexible, even nanotechnology was involved in the develpoment. These dye-sensitized solar cells are a differentiated and disruptive solar technology, that can compete with nuclear and coal produced electricity and represent an evolving more that 25 year technology platform.
