Nanotechnology-Enabled Energy [R]evolution: Nanoscale Design of a Flexible Smart-Membrane for Harnessing Free Sources of Energy
Vijay A. Kanade
Nanotechnology enhanced, thin-film solar cells constitute one of the most promising energy solutions in todays age. Along with the thin-film solar cells that harness free source of energy from the sun, thermoelectric devices play a significant role in addressing energy issues by making an efficient use of energy given out by humans as body heat. The paper profiles smart integration of nano-structured components into a smart-grid termed as a smart-membrane for availing free sources of energy. The membrane leverages the advantage of micro-supercapacitors that act as an energy storage unit interior to the membrane.
Keywords: Thin-film Flexible Solar Cells, Flexible Micro-supercapacitors, Flexible Thermoelectric Generators TEGs, Smart-membrane
