JM: So help me understand, for example, solar. Why, among all energy technologies, did solar rise to the top as something that IBM was uniquely positioned perhaps to address?
SN: Well, if you look at the current solar technologies IBM has actually a lot of expertise in the technology, which is very silicon-based for solar cells right now. If we look at our silicon processing materials, engineering, nanotechnology, we have a very similar skill set to what is being used today to create solar cells, silicon-based solar cells.
