The power industry continues to be a hotbed of innovation, with activity driven by impact of greenhouse gas, net zero carbon emission goals and production of greener electricity, and growing importance of technologies such as carbon capture and storage, and battery energy storage system and grid integration of renewable energy. In the last three years alone, there have been over 439,000 patents filed and granted in the power industry, according to GlobalData’s report on Environment Sustainability in Power: Quantum dot solar cell manufacturing.
However, not all innovations are equal and nor do they follow a constant upward trend. Instead, their evolution takes the form of an S-shaped curve that reflects their typical lifecycle from early emergence to accelerating adoption, before finally stabilising and reaching maturity.
Nanoco Group, a global leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots and other nanomaterials, has filed a significant number of patents in quantum dot solar cell manufacturing.
Nanoco Group PLC (LON:NANO) leads the world in the research, development and large-scale manufacture of heavy metal-free nanomaterials for use in displays, lighting, vertical farming, solar energy and bio-imaging.
