Ever think about how amazing it would be if tech as complex as solar cells could be simply sprayed onto a surface? A group of researchers found that a common organic semiconductor may make that situation
New Energy Technologies has unveiled SolarWindow, a working prototype that is simply sprayed with the company's eco-friendly electricity generating film to produce energy.
Carbon nanotubes have been used in everything from energy-free lights to oil spill clean-up technology, and now a team from Rice University has used them to develop a paint that transforms any surface
Did you know that melanin, the pigment in hair, is light sensitive and can be used as a conductor? Well, that's what an 18 year old in Nepal recently discovered, and is now using human hair to replace
Solar panels often conjure up images of clumsy, dark sheets lined up in rooftop arrays on green homes and buildings. But what if they weren't dark and clumsy -- and what if they didn't have to go on the
Photo by Robert S. Donovan Norwegian Company EnSol AS has developed a remarkable new spray-on solar film that allows windows to generate solar power without clouding the view. The material consists of
Solar shingles are nothing new, but up until now the technology has been relatively inefficient and clunky-looking. That's about to change, though, with Dow Chemical's new thin-film solar roofing
NextGen Solar has announced that their new breed of cheap solar paint is closer than ever now that the company has raised half of the $1 million it needs to move out of the lab and into the real world.
Even though the 2,600 ft tall, 126 story Burj Dubai is still under construction, a fierce race is already brewing to construct the world's next tallest building. Recently Santa Monica building designer
This article is underwritten by Veer.com. Green technology isn't just about wind turbines, solar panels and alternative fuel anymore. A few inspiring individuals out there are breaking new ground
