    Pathways to Terawatts of Solar Power and Gigawatt-Hours of Energy Storage | Greentech Media

    The annual potential of solar energy far exceeds the world's per-year energy consumption, but the goal of using the sun to provide a significant fraction of global electricity demand is far from being realized. Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and their counterparts from similar institutes in Japan and Germany, along with researchers at universities and industry, assessed the recent trajectory of photovoltaics and outlined a potential worldwide pathway to produce a significant portion of the world's electricity from solar power in the new Science paper, "Terawatt-Scale Photovoltaics: Trajectories and Challenges.
