Climate: conference on silicon solar cells

Martin A. Green, Professor at University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia, will talk on October, 12, for the conference cycle on energy and environment organised at École Polytechnique to prepare the Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21).

“Silicon solar cells: Power source for the future?” will be the topic of the conference presented by Martin A. Green, Professor at University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia, on Monday, October, 12 at 4pm at École Polytechnique.

This presentation is part of the conference cycle on energy and environment organised by the Coriolis Institute to prepare the Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21) and the debates on energy transition.

Martin A. Green, Professor at University of New South Wales:

Over the past five years the price of silicon photovoltaic cells has dropped dramatically with good prospects for steadily decreasing future costs. These cells would thus reduce the current dependence on fossil fuels in the world. This conference will give an introduction to the cell operating principles, the way they are presently manufactured and the future improvements that will further reduce costs. The challenges facing the widespread adoption of the technology will also be described.
