It could lead to several breakthroughs, ranging from the development of printable solar cells that can be easily rolled up and transported, to the integration of semi-transparent solar cells into a window. This funding will see that they continue to enhance their skills, capacity, and knowledge, as they seek to deliver more affordable and reliable energy while shifting to a lower emissions future.
