Business Side Of Green

It is easy to assume that solar power is a new phenomenon given its recent rapid rise to star quality among renewables. Yet, the technology has been around for decades. Has it worked well? Yes. Is it ready to be transformed into something much more powerful? Absolutely.

You will hear that today in this segment with our guest, Dr. Libai Huang, Assistant Professor-Physical Chemistry at Purdue University. In combination with the National Renewable Energy Lab, Libai and the team are creating thinner cells using cheaper, more flexible materials, both organic and inorganic sources.

Part of the secret source to making better solar cells is to eliminate loss through heat. Efficiency brings better returns. You can also use the new material in smaller applications and will need to cover less of a roof or field to generate megawatts of clean power.

Hopefully, Libai and her very large scientific team working on this project will have the technology and IP finalized in five years and we will see the new product get licensed into the commercial marketplace. Next generation of people giving us next generation of better energy systems. Again we see collaboration, government, academia, business, building a better future. The race is on for cheaper, faster modeling of a clean world. What a great race to be part of.
