Flisom says thin film solar to wipe out fossil power


New thin film solar, so lightweight and flexible it can be stuck to the side of buildings (or clothing for that matter) is about to sweep the marketplace and provide power at half the cost of the current fossil-fuel generated juice, says Anil Sethi, the chief executive of the Swiss start-up company Flisom.  The thin film will be manufactured in rolls like cellophane tape, and within a decade, hit only 50p per watt - which is the tipping point.  The power is at about £2 per watt now, so it's getting close.  It'll also mean mobiles, mp3 players, etc, will carry their own power-generation sources so those nasty cables will be a thing of the past.  [GT]

My associates at www.thegoodgasguys.com and at www.fueltac.net manufacture a very small device that fits on the outside bottom of any fuel tank and provides dramatic increase in fuel mileage and reduction in harmful emmisions.
