MIT Study: Solar Panels are Now Capable of Powering The World

Researchers from the MIT claim that current solar power technologies are sophisticated and efficient enough to power the future- what lacks is a financial support from the governments. A major study, conducted by scientists from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, concludes that further development in the field of solar, and investments in new technologies, are not needed. The findings clearly show that photovoltaic technologies that we have on the market today are sufficient to power the world and meet all electricity needs of society. In the detailed and very extensive report entitled The Future of Solar Energy , which resulted from the study , the scientists indicate that the tools that we all need in order to meet all demands solely relying on solar power are already in place. Of course, the team does not deny that further improvements of the technol...
