New solar cell coming out next year, in Japan

Solar_FilmA Japanese company has announced that it will be ready to launch a new “thin-film solar cell” next year.

Less than half a millimetre thick, the film can be applied to blinds and curtains, office partitions and whiteboards and even clothes, where it generates electricity even from low levels of indoor light.

The company says the electricity the film generates will be cost-effective  because it can be manufactured using traditional printing coaters.
