Now Playing: Revolutionary Solar Energy Conversion Process Developed
  • Description:  A new process that simultaneously combines the light and heat of solar radiation to generate electricity could offer more than double the efficiency of existing solar cell technology, say the Stanford engineers who discovered it and proved that it works. The process, called photon enhanced thermionic emission, or PETE, could reduce the costs of solar energy production enough for it to compete with oil as an energy source. Stanford University http//
