Spray-on Solar Cells from Mitsubishi

You probably don’t think of cleantech when you think of Mitsubishi, but it’s been pushing its name into the field lately. A couple years ago, it broke the PV solar cell efficiency record . This year, it unveiled solar-powered EV charging stations at it headquarters in Cypress, California. And I’ve just read that it is developing spray-on solar cells . Now, spray-on solar power technology has been in the works and popping up in the news from time to time for years. In February 2009, we wrote about some spray-on solar panels Australian researchers are working on. Later that year, we wrote that scientists at the University of Texas in Austin were working on spray-on solar cells of their own. In January 2010, we covered a spray-on solar power technology breakthrough by New Energy Technologies. And Tina has covered this and related solar technologies this year already. But, unl...
