Nanotechnology Could Make Original Solar Technologies Obsolete

The solar scenario over the last few decades has historically been dominated by silicone-based solar cells. Today, over 80 percent of the manufacturing infrastructure around the globe is dominated by silicone—the bulk of it now in China. Of course, China's solar manufacturing strategies are a huge part of the shift we're seeing in the market today as others suffer through a glut of materials on the market and rapid crashes in prices of solar cells.The Current LandscapeWhy is silicone dominating? For one, it's an abundant material, coming…
