RTI International develops low cost solar technology to speed up adoption

Currently, even after the steep rise in the cost of energy and the rise in carbon emissions resulting from the production of conventional electricity, solar energy represents less than 1 percent of the total global energy supply. The reason for these low figures is the high cost of solar panels and other required infrastructure used for producing and storing renewable solar energy. Researchers at RTI International have now come up with an innovative solar technology, which aims to reduce the cost of solar panels and make it a lot more lucrative.
