Here’s another interesting article from EE Times regarding solar cell manufacturing.  Looks like Europe and especially Germany are really taking the solar “bull” by the horns.  Is this extra foresight by the government of Germany?  Could they be going too far down this road?  Whatever the case, Europe has commited many resources to the production of solar cells.  Let’s hope that there’s also some R&D going on that will ultimately produce more efficient solar cells.  The world needs to get off the fossil fuel addiction.
