Liquid technology could be used to coat existing structures to provide unobtrusive electricity.
The UK press has been very much taken by a new technology from Australia:
‘British weather-proof’ solar panel that generates 20 per cent MORE energy in cloudy weather has been invented by scientists
- Improvement to the solar panel method makes it more sensitive to light
- Energy would be created in dimmer conditions such as in drizzle and cloud
- Layer thinner than a human hair produce around 20% more energy in low light

The science press has been equally impressed:
The research was published in the journal Nature Energy:
