CleanTechnica reports on research at Brookhaven National Laboratory that has stumbled upon a way to integrate graphene efficiently into soda-lime glass, which could lead to cheaper and more efficient solar panels:

“…graphene’s high conductivity and transparency make it a very promising candidate as a transparent, conductive electrode to replace the relatively brittle and expensive indium tin oxide (ITO) in applications such as solar cells, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), flat panel displays, and touch screens.”
