state-of-the-art in conversion of sunlight to electricity and how to help accelerate it.

In the next 60 minutes the sun will hit the earth with enough energy to meet all of the world’s power needs for one year … if only we could harness it. Solar photovoltaics (PV) is a simple solution to a huge problem facing the world, and we have reached a tipping point that puts solar in true reach. This talk will address the state-of-the-art in conversion of sunlight to electricity, the companies and countries making a meaningful impact on advancing the introduction of PV, and an overview of ways that individuals and governments should act today to help accelerate solar and put the power, quite literally, into the hands of the people.
