Australian solar energy technology company Dyesol is listing on the Australian Stock Exchange to commercialise its revolutionary dye solar cell technology. Just as chlorophyll in a leaf absorbs energy from the sun for the needs of a plant, the dye in Dyesol solar cells absorbs light to generate renewable electricity in a process known as artificial photosynthesis.

With an increased focus on alternative sources of cheap, abundant, clean energy,
solar cells are receiving lots of attention. Researchers are now on the brink of improving
the efficiency of solar cells through nanowires. The dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC) is one
of the most important developments in photovoltaics in the last two decades. Excitonic solar
cells, such as organic, hybrid organic and inorganic solar cells are promising devices

Corus, Dyesol and the Welsh Assembly Government have agreed significant funding to further progress the development of dye solar cell technology on steel for building integrated photovoltaic applications. Corus and Dyesol have been working closely for the past two years, and in January 2008 successfully completed a detailed 12-month study, which confirmed the feasibility of this technology for large-scale manufacture on steel.
