Nanotechnology and Photovoltaics
There's only one source of renewable energy that
can provide all
of the world's needs and that's the Sun. In fact, enough sunlight falls
on the Earth's surface in just a couple of hours each day to meet the
whole world's energy needs for one year. The question is: how can we
effectively and economically harness this solar energy, without
mass-producing very expensive conventional solar cells, which would
ultimately require vast tracts of land in order to do their job?
could provide the answer in the form of a new kind of solar cell, one
which would be relatively inexpensive to manufacture and highly
flexible in design. In fact, you maybe surprised as to just how
flexible these cells might be! Find out more by watching this movie.
