Silicon based photovoltaics expected to dominate in the next decade, as research in alternative solar technologies intensify

Last week, we caught up with Dave Carlson, chief scientist of BP Solar, to discuss current advances in photovoltaic technologies. While nonsilicon semiconductor materials or organic photovoltaics are creating a lot of buzz, Dave maintains that the non-silicon-based technologies are still far from ma...
