Very cool: Konarka Power Plastic

Download the PDF below for a really nice look into the future at Konarka, which manufactures thin film flexible solar panels. I especially like their solar Power Thread technology, which promises to make solar power generation available in the actual thread structure of woven garments and cloth items such as Sunbrellas.

They still have to bring that technology to market, but their Power Plastic is available now and being integrated in a variety of home design applications. Very nice!

Konarka Power Plastic is a photovoltaic material that captures both indoor and outdoor light and converts it into direct current (DC) electrical energy. This energy can be used immediately, stored for later use, or converted to other forms. Power Plastic can be applied to a limitless number of potential applications – from microelectronics to portable power, remote power and building-integrated applications.

We will soon be announcing the availability of our seven standard products. These products include Konarka Power Plastic panels ranging from our KT 25 (0.25W) to our KT 3000 (26W), perfect for many portable and remote power applications.
