LightWorks pulls light-inspired research at ASU under one strategic framework.
- Associate Professor, Chemical and Biological Engineering Department, Colorado School of Mines
The scale by which CO2 must be mitigated worldwide dwarfs the existing chemical industry, making utilization of CO2 as a chemical feedstock a minor component of the portfolio of mitigation options. Carbon capture and storage is one strategy that could potentially mitigate gigatons of CO2 emissions per year, provided geological...

- Professor of Geography, University of Cambridge, U.K.
The idea of climate has always fulfilled important psychological, cultural and political functions. Climate may be understood according to aggregated statistics of weather or apprehended more intuitively, as a tacit idea held in social memory. However defined, “climate” establishes certain expectations about the possibility of stable and meaningful human...
New and Innovative Policy and Business Models for Distributed Energy Resources in a Hyper-Connected World
- Principal, The Boston Consulting Group
- Director, Energy Policy Innovation Council
- Global Security Initiative, Arizona State University
As renewable energy takes off and moves closer to the point of consumption, generation around the world is becoming more decentralized. These distributed energy resources (DER) are transforming energy markets, but questions remain about what this new industry will look like and how DER will be managed. In this...

"Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things." - Tobler’s Law of Geography
The concept of PLACE has never been more prominent and ubiquitous in our personal and professional lives. Maps have evolved into sophisticated, interactive, decision-support systems. The confluence of big data, remote...
- Director of Research and Technology, Natcore Technology
Natcore Technology is developing a new back-contact back-junction cell metallization based upon multilayer foil laminates. Capable of being produced in low-cost roll-to-roll processes, the laminates consist of aluminum foils bonded to an insulating film, yielding for example a preformed metal / dielectric / metal stack that can be used to...
- Chief Scientist, Jinko Solar
Recently the standard back surface field (BSF) p-type monocrystalline silicon solar cells were significantly replaced by the passivated emitter rear contact (PERC) solar cells in large volume. PERC solar cells appear successfully migrating from lab’s development to factory manufacturing. The story is unfolded with solutions of passivated-layer equipment for mass...

The capacity of the Earth’s atmosphere to safely hold excess carbon without too much warming is very limited. Unless that pace is dramatically accelerated, the planet will almost certainly exceed its “carbon budget” within two decades, if it hasn’t already. This concern has led the International Panel on Climate Change...
