Organic printed solar cells offer you the chance to print out solar panels and stick them on your roof

With Australia’s energy crisis dominating news headlines, a powerful new industry-research collaboration is signaling the emergence of a new renewable energy market – organic printed solar. Professor Paul Dastoor Created by University of Newcastle Physicist, Professor Paul Dastoor, organic printed solar cells are electronic inks printed onto sub-millimetre thin plastic sheets using conventional printers. CHEP, a Brambles company, has become their historic
