PolySolar: Personalizing the power of the sun. Silicon-based solar energy is expensive. To meet this challenge, entrepreneurs Ian de Albuquerque and Eduard Nasybulin created PolySolar, a start-up that generates Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) solar cells. Through clever design and electrochemical polymers, their technology could reduce costs and make solar power more widely available. These mini-solar panels can recharge your cellphone or be used on a backpack as a mobile charging station.
