Printing Solar Cells like printing Money
Posted by keelynet on February 26, 2009
Well, if they print money as fast as our government prints money out of thin air, the energy crisis will be over in a flash.
“Victorian Minister for Energy and Resources, Peter Batchelor, announced today the start of printing trials by Securency International, a banknote printing company. “The production of these film-like solar cells will be literally as easy as printing money,” Mr Batchelor said. “These solar cells are cutting edge technology and offer advantages over traditional solar technology because of the potential to mass produce the cells cheaply and install them over large areas such as rooftops. “The technology used for these cells is still in its infancy, but this project aims to speed-up the development of this technology and take it from research to rooftops as quickly as possible.” “To be able to manufacture flexible, organic solar cells which are ‘printed’ on to polymer in much the same way as money is made, quickly and cheaply, has enormous potential.” – Source
