Dye-sensitized Solar Cell (DSSC) Technology

I found a good article on the state of DSSC here.

DSSC is an alternative to the use of semiconductors like silicon. The solar panels it produces are only about half as efficient, so that twice the area would be required.

However, they promise to be less than half the price, so that except in situations where the actual area is limited they may prove a better buy.

Roof-top installations for residential use normally have plenty of roof area to spare, and DSSC may excel in this situation.
