Stanford Engineers Discover New Solar Energy Conversion Process

<p>Stanford engineers have figured out how to simultaneously use the light and heat of the sun to generate electricity in a way that could make solar power production more than twice as efficient as existing methods and potentially cheap enough to compete with oil.</p>

<p>Unlike photovoltaic technology currently used in solar panels – which becomes less efficient as the temperature rises – the new process excels at higher temperatures.</p>

<p>Read all about it here:</p>

<p>Stanford</a> engineers' new solar energy conversion process could revamp solar power production</p>

<p>Oh: and that's why I love Stanford! (Among a googol of other reasons)</p>
