A researcher at the University of New South Wales is on the cutting edge of developing solar technology. Dr. Xiaojing Hao’s research team has created a solar cell that is thin enough to be deployed in zero energy buildings. More importantly, however, her team has developed these panels not with rare minerals but the most common metals and materials: Copper, zinc, tin, and sulphur. For a Photovoltaic Engineer like Marlon Kobacker, Hao’s breakthrough is exciting. No longer are zero energy buildings an impossible pipe dream, either because of the lack of technology or the lack of funds. With this new, low-cost technology, solar architectural options ar

e going to be almost limitless.
