Applying Bioclimatic Design; Building Solar Cells from the Atom Up

Solar technologies and techniques come in many forms. From passive solar design to designing photovoltaic cells on the atomic level, there are thousands of ways to utilize the sun's energy for our own use. In this podcast, we'll take a look at some simple and complex uses for solar along that spectrum of applications.

Victor Olgyay, a Principal Architect with the Built Environment Team at the Rocky Mountain Institute, talks about the rise of the solar movement in architecture and how we can harness the new-found interest in sustainable, integrated design to create meaningful change.

Pradeep Haldar, a Professor of Nanoengineering at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the University of Albany describes the role that nanotechnology can play in increasing solar cell efficiency and decreasing costs.

Inside Renewable Energy is a weekly audio news program featuring stories and interviews on all the latest developments in the renewable energy industries.
