A Window into the Future: Dye?Sensitized Solar Cells in Buildings

Solar cells are an incredible source of renewable energy. As with all technologies, though, they should be cheap,
easy to adopt, and smart. Dye-Sensitized Solar cells are solar cells that are not only highly effective at creating
energy from the sun but are also capable of being adopted into homes in new and unique ways. We are developing
a method of converting existing windows into solar cells. Throug this technology a window would still act as a
window, except it would also be capable of harvesting energy from the sun and powering a home.
