Pramod Kumar Meena | Veerendra Singh | Rajendra Sharma | R. B. Pachwarya

Abstract: With the increasing demand of energy, the solar power as a supplement and potential substitute to the fossils? fuels. the need of solar power conversion and storage techniques have much importance. The photo-galvanic solar cells are capable of solar energy conversion and storage simultaneously. In previous work various synthetic photo sensitizers have been used by researchers, to develop eco friendly Galvanic solar cell, natural photosensitizer (Pomegranate juice) is used with reductant (fructose), and Surfactant (NaLS) in alkali solution. The obtain cell performance in terms conversion efficiency, fill factor, storage capacity, photocurrent, photopotential and maximum power of the cell are 10.3%, 0.38, 220 minutes,0.984 mA, 510 mV and 268 ?W respectively.

Keywords: Natural Photosensitizer, Galvanic Solar Cell, Photopotential, Photocurrent, Conversion efficiency
