The development of a printed solar cell by the Eni-MIT Solar Frontiers Center is an encouraging sign for solar power enthusiasts. Technology like this could change how we power our planet.

Italian oil and gas company Eni and MIT have joined forces to research advanced solar technologies at the Eni-MIT Solar Frontiers Center. While the printed solar cell isn't as effective as a regular solar panel at converting sunlight into energy, the fact that it was even created is a step in the right direction.
