FUTURISTIC SOLAR ENERGY INNOVATIONS

BEYOND SILICON

Solar cells have always been made with silicon and "rare earth" elements. A shortage of rare earth elements has motivated scientists to find new ways of getting electricity from the sun.

New, exciting, and more efficient technologies are on the horizon. Also, the expectation is that the new solar cells will be cheaper and manufactured in the U.S.

Tune in this Friday, Dec. 10 at 2:30 PM as DV Venkataraman from the University of Massachusetts discusses cutting-edge innovations in solar technology.
