Renewable Energy Applications

renewable green technology using nanostructured carbon from Nano-C

Renewable Energy

Demand for a greener alternative to fossil fuels has never been higher.  This has sparked massive development in how to harness the power, efficiency and flexibility of carbon – the strongest, environmentally safe and most abundant element on earth.

By partnering with Merck and other industry leaders, Nano-C has developed the most efficient and cost-effective carbon-based fullerenic materials to power a wide range of applications.  These materials are enabling companies to deliver breakthrough technology that can generate green energy and power our world into the next century. Featuring patented technology, Nano-C’s carbon-based fullerenic materials are inexpensive, printable, flexible, and tough enough to withstand extreme environmental conditions.

Below are the two critical renewable energy applications they are addressing today:

Organic Photovoltaic Applications

Organic PV offers exceptional advantages in form factor and cost while generating the highest energy harvested per day leading to the greatest energy payback.

Energy Harvesting Enables small and lightweight Indoor sensors, chargers, and applications that are wireless, portable, and highly efficient at producing energy from low-light output.
Building integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) Easily integrated into conventional building materials such as roofs, skylights or facades.  Lightweight, flexible, durable and efficient enough to be easily placed anywhere, even in vertical curtain-wall type installations.
Automotive Car roof windows
Portable Power Light-weight, flexible, low-cost, powerful source of green portable power.

PEM Fuel Cell Applications

Nano-C’s unique innovations enable automotive OEMs to reduce the size and weight of a fuel cell by providing a 20% to 50% increase in energy density.

Automotive Hydrogen-oxygen fuel cells eliminate harmful gases and are smaller and more productive in generating power than today’s fuel cells.
Portable Power Can turn traditional fuel cells into a powerful source of green portable power.
