Solar Power-Cell Breakthrough

That's great news for renewable energy!

Solar Power-Cell Breakthrough:_ "An anonymous reader writes 'Researchers from the Nanomaterials Research Centre at Massey University in New Zealand have developed synthetic dyes that can be used to generate electricity at one tenth of the cost of current silicon-based solar panels. These photosynthesis-like compounds work in low-light conditions and can be cheaply incorporated into window-panes and building materials, thereby turning them into generators of electricity.'
