Event description
What kind of solar will dominate by 2050 when solar will provide 70% of our energy needs? NREL & Mines researchers report

About this Event

By 2050 we’ll likely see 70% of new power generation from solar (and 20% from wind), offering huge savings in cost and emissions of Renewables over fossil fuels.

But what kind of solar? Will it be familiar silicon photovoltaics, or brand new thin film technology like the much talked about Perovskites solar cells which are not yet commercially ready but have reached high efficiencies?

Keith Emery ran the solar testing lab at NREL and will explain why conventional silicon PV totally dominates the market share and will likely stay ahead.

Colorado School of Mines professor Alan Sellinger works with NREL on Perovskites. He’ll introduce what makes that new technology so attractive and their prospects to eventually take the lead or at least fit important niches.

Please stay for food, drinks, and conversations after the presentation.
