Solar Energy Breakthroughs
The most abundant and renewable resource of all, solar energy, stands poised to move from potential to reality - making energy scarcity a thing of the past. Photovoltaic power, solar thermal power, and solar architecture - both at the utility scale and in distributed applications - are all on the cusp of being commercially competitive. Which solar companies and technologies are closest to rapid expansion, and how quickly can solar energy grow to produce a significant share of global power?
