Nanosolar Factory Funded

Nanosolar are that rarest of things – a Silicon Valley start-up with a clear mission and business plan. They are looking at using roll-printing methods to dramatically lower the price of solar panels, and have just won $100m of funds to open their new factory next year. Their thin-film technology will hopefully bring us to the ‘economic tipping-point’, when there will be an explosion of take-up in solar energy projects.
