The public and researchers support the use of solar energy. In the past, the government mistakenly assumed that solar power technology had already matured, and that improving the efficiency and lowering prices should be the industry's responsibility. Therefore, it didn't support research and development, and producers didn't want to risk building factories. The situation has improved recently, however.
The efficiency of thin-film solar cells is still only about 20 percent. Using nanotechnology, efficiency can be boosted significantly. With reflectors focusing the light, technology to produce electricity from solar heat will soon be ready to be put to use.
