Solar panels on auto-pilot

Bill Gates has a multi-billion dollar fund called Breakthrough Energy Ventures, that invests in clean energy projects.

They've just handed USD$44 million to a company that has automated much of the solar panel production process, from the acquisition of land using cloud-based software, to the production of solar panels with machines and robots.

The intention is to speed up the scale of solar implementation - the engineering side of solar basically hasn't changed much (their words), so they can give most of the heavy lifting jobs to robots and really speed things up.

Innovation is rarely something completely new - most of the time, it's simply enhancing something that already exists.
