April 23, 2015

King County EcoConsumer Tom Watson partnered with KOMO TV to highlight innovative “green” products to celebrate Earth Day. Watch this video featuring UW graduate student Caitlin Cramer, a member of the company Flexolar, which is using research developed at the Clean Energy Institute to build flexible and durable solar cells.

Caitlin demonstrates how the cells can be incorporated into everyday household fixtures, like window blinds, and help generate clean energy for the home. Flexolar was one of four CEI sponsored teams that competed in the recent Alaska Airlines Environmental Innovation Challenge.
