Nanotechnologies for an Energy Efficient Future
Date: September 29, 2011
Location:Los Angeles
Nanotechnologies for an Energy Efficient Future. MIT Club of Southern California. The energy-efficient future will be built through energy-efficiency and sustainably produced electricity. Professor Bulovi; will discuss MIT’s role in inventing and re-imagining technologies for both efficient energy use and sustainable energy generation, all in the service of preparing students to be leaders in tomorrow’s industry. Professor Bulovi; will begin by looking at the slow pace of adoption of energy-efficient lighting, leading into a discussion of recent nanotechnology breakthroughs that promise to accelerate the adoption of these new technologies. He will then address the primary technical challenges that limit the adoption of solar electricity generation. Here he will touch on a number of new solar cells amenable to ubiquitous solar deployment, all demonstrated at MIT, including transparent solar cells for integration with glass surfaces, paper-thin solar cells for large-area and low-weight applications, and three-dimensional solar cells for limited installation areas.
