Solar energy is great—we all know it by now. But what’s even better? Cheaper solar energy. And what’s even better than that? Cheaper solar energy who’s production has a small carbon footprint.
Solar energy itself is free (can’t charge us for the sun) and it doesn’t produce any pollution. But producing solar-powered materials does produce pollution. Disposing of the solar materials in an environmentally-friendly way can also be tricky.
Here’s the solution: using sunlight (free, clean) to make the solar materials. Here’s the idea: The sunlight would heat a microreactor to the right temperature, and that in turn would make nanoparticle ink that makes solar cells through printing.
It’s a cheap, clean way to make more cheap, clean energy.
