We're One Panel Closer to Printing Cheap, Plastic Solar Like Newspapers

Our most promising visions of a clean-powered future typically position cheap, abundant solar energy as an important cornerstone. And solar panels would be a lot cheaper and abundant if they were made out of plastic instead of silicon—that way, they could be 'printed' in a flexible material and easily applied to walls, windows, you name it. Researchers just made an important discovery about the nature of plastic solar, which might speed the arrival of thin, bendable energy strips.
