Researchers at Australian National University (ANU) and their commercial partners are hoping to have spray-on solar panels available to the commercial market by the end of 2011. According to their findings, the ANU scientists believe the new conveyor-belt production method they invented for solar panels will save about $4 million in manufacturing costs for a medium-sized company [source: Stohr].
Spark Solar, an Australian company and commercial partner in the spray-on solar material project, is betting on the future by building a new plant that will be able to produce 19 million solar cells each year.
