Sarah Kurtz, Research Fellow at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) argues that solar is truly coming of age and answers where photovoltaic technology stands today. And she addresses what it will take to move beyond today’s dominance of crystalline silicon and introduce new technologies which aren’t yet competitive. Finally she offers that it will likely take identifying new applications for new forms of PV, and that the resulting transformation will be deep as well as global.

Sarah Kurtz, PhD, Research Fellow, is a world-renowned expert in multi-junction PV, concentrator PV, and PV reliability. At the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) since 1985 she is the Co-Director of the National Center For Photovoltaics (as of Aug. 2017).
