Paper Abstract

Energy harvesting and storage systems (EHSS) for future AF vehicles are reviewed with emphasis on thermoelectics, organic materials, specifically, dye-sensitized solar cells and polymer batteries. The organic solar cells include solid-state organic solar cells and dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC). The advantages of using such organic EHSS for AF vehicles are their specific performance, its scalability to larger skin area and low-temperature processing route, thus cost-effective however, there are several technical challenges preventing us to develop the organic EHSS in a speedy way.
