Energy security has recently become a high-profile item in national policy. Of the alternatives, solar energy and, specifically, photovoltaics, is very appealing. The concept is “green,” and the fuel (the light) is free. What are the current and future possibilities? What does nanotechnology offer? What supporting infrastructure will be necessary? Please join our panelists as they discuss their perspectives.
