Update: NanoTech Engineering's panel was not in fact verified by MIT. Read our update on nanotech's graphene solar panel here.

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

graphene photovoltaics

This is not fake news and does not violate the laws of thermodynamics. Maybe you should brush up on your science education. Graphene has recently become the new wonder material and is now being used in batteries that can be charged in a few minutes, can be recharged a few thousand times, and with carbon atoms far less expensive than lithium battery technology. With this announcement of its use in photovoltaics, it is destined to become the material of choice for new energy generation.

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.


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.

questionable mathematics

When they say 0.55c so they mean 55c ie $0.55? (per W)

Solar panels now cost 40-55c USD per W, not $3.26, so this is incorrect and makes me question what they know and how they express things.

And, the panels make up about 1/3 of the full cost of the system... about 1/3 panels, 1/3 install, 1/3 Balance of system inc inverters.


Where are you getting that 40-55c figure? Are you sure you are not looking at price per kwh?
