21st May 2018 – Filling Up On Sunshine – Dr Andrew Thomas

Solar energy has the potential to easily meet global human energy demand and would mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and the issues surrounding finite fossil fuel reserves. However, despite intensive research efforts, competitively priced and stable solar energy is still a “research problem”. This talk will cover some of the issues that affect solar generation and approaches to solar energy utilisation with some hands-on experimentation (weather permitting!)

Dr Andrew Thomas of the School of Materials, Photon Science Institute, The University of Manchester will be presenting this topic.
