Solar power, Steel roofs and Dyesol

By sooku, August 20, 2012

Dyesol (ASX: DYE, OTC: DYESOY) is an Australian company that owns the patents, and formulae for specialty chemicals, used in dye-sensitive solar cells (DSSC), a .4th generation technology that works in low light and is ideal for building-integrated solar generation. A steel roof version is nearly completed, in partnership with Tata-Corus Steel. a major UK steelmaker. Given billions of square feet of steel roofing in the world, that segment alone will be an enormous market. Dyesol is the only pure play for now. DSSC manufacture is cheap and wildly scalable since no expensive fabs are required and capital investment is small. I think it will be a thriving business in 5-6 years. The company has avoided countries like China and India with high piracy risk.

Does anyone else know about this technology and believe that it will be a big deal within the decade?

Here's what he said: "They offer a great (and genuinely FREE) 'second opinion' for your financial plan, but what I love most is their automated financial dashboard -- it will look at all your assets and debts, tally up your asset allocation, project where you'll be at retirement, and suggest ways to manage risk or improve returns. It's free, I think their free tools are great, and I think it's worth checking out -- you can do so here.
