It seems likely that Dye Sensitised Solar Cells are going to play an important role in the energy production of the future. With the possibility of cheap, flexible and durable solar cells, this technology is surely going to become ubiquitous for small scale electricity generation.
This workshop gives an introduction to DSSC technology.
