Solar Cells and The Promise of Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Long touted as the solution to pollution and energy problems the world over, photovoltaic solar cells have never made a major impact on large scale electricity production. In fact, in 2000, commercial electricity production from solar, geothermal and natural heat sources only accounted for 0.5% of global supply. The reason for this is simple - cost.
