Nanotech engineering logo imageNanotech Engineering announced that MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has verified the technology of its new Nanopanel, a solar panel that is declared as 92% efficient (as opposed to around 20% for traditional large panels).

Nanotech Engineering's Nanopanel is described as a solar panel with layers of Graphene as the base, a carbon nanotube forest on top with a mineral solution that can come in any color to match the home. “The panel is slightly thicker and wider than a FedEx envelope, yet stronger than steel, flexible, lightweight, flexible and about half the cost of traditional panels,” said Nanotech.

The CEO of Nanotech said, “We are pleased to have such a prestigious University verify what we already knew, that our Nanopanel is the next and last generation of solar panels”. Nanotech adds that while the nationwide average cost per Watt for Solar is $3.26, the Nanopanel cost per watt is only .55 cents.

Jeffrey Grossman, Professor of Engineering, MIT, said: “Pound for pound, the new solar cells produce up to 1,000 times more power than conventional photovoltaics”. In their study of graphene for solar panel use, he also stated, “Such panels surpass any substance other than reactor-grade uranium in terms of energy produced per pound of material, graphene packs hundreds of times more power per weight than conventional solar cells.”

Fake New

This new is fake. A 92% rating in ratiation/electricity conversion violate the laws of thermodynamics. And where is the link of the investigation?

Jeffrey Grossman, the MIT professor, denies had participated in this investigation.

This page have lost its credibility for me.

Graphene PV at MIT

Here is the original MIT news article that says "could"

Graphene & PV cells

I agree with you, this information lacks credibility

Loved this gem...

92% efficiency? That's nothing. Apparently it even works at night! From their website:

Through the use of Nano Materials, we can harness 92% of the Suns energy on a Solar Panel the size of a piece of paper, and it continues to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even at night.

Graphene

It is a fact that graphene is 1000x better than silicon. So if Nanotech Engineering Inc. has this solar panel, they are going to corner the market!!!

The Future of Solar

I have been studying Graphene and Carbon Nanotube combinations for the last 5 years and I have viewed Nanotech Engineering's information, all I can say is they will dominate the solar industry.
