Abstract:

As oil prices continue to rise steeply and political turmoil increases in the Middle East, it is increasingly evident that finding a solution to an uncertain energy future is one of the biggest issues of our time. With advances in science and engineering, new materials and ingenious designs for solar collectors are transforming the technology into a vastly cheaper, more efficient alternative. This episode of NOVA presents the latest thinking from solar enthusiasts and skeptics as it investigates cutting-edge research developments. The film interviews scientists and businesspeople who are racing to make solar power practical--for lighting, heating, and running power plants.
