Large-scale adoption of photovoltaics (PV) is still prohibitive due to their higher costs when compared to the other forms of energy available today. To drive the PV module and system prices down and thus increase implementation, researchers around the world are developing new types of solar cells using transformative technologies and materials that go beyond the current silicon-based panels.On behalf of the Initiative for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern (ISEN) and the Argonne-Northwestern Solar Energy Research Center, we are delighted to welcome you to the 6th annual ANSER Solar Energy Symposium.
We are honored to have a star-studded lineup of speakers for this year’s Symposium. These leaders will outline the current state-of-the-art in the development of 3rd generation solar cells via nanotechnology, new energy-harvesting processes, novel materials, and economics.
Please join us for the entire day, or just for one talk - whatever your schedule may permit. We hope that you will arrive with an open mind, ask questions while you are here, and leave feeling engaged and informed.
We look forward to seeing you on May 9 and 10!
