The sun is sending towards us far more energy that we would ever need, yet we’re capturing only a tiny fraction. In this interview, Prof Ravi Silva, Director of the Advanced Technology Institute at the University of Surrey, explains how a new approach to solar cell fabrication will allow us to harvest all the energy we need at a cost that won’t break the bank. Plastics and organic semiconductors hold the key to green energy.
This is a “Potential Difference” special, presented and produced by me, Dr Radu Sporea. It has been featured on PodAcademy and on the University of Surrey’s Electronic Engineering pages.
