Solar power is both a clean and abundant energy source, producing electric power from photovoltaic cells and through large-scale thermal technology known as concentrating solar power. Experts believe the United States has the potential to greatly expand the use of this alternative energy source, while also creating jobs and strengthening energy security.
The Optical Society (OSA) and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI), in conjunction with the House Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Caucus, invite reporters to a congressional briefing to hear experts in the field discuss:
Confirmed speakers include:
Reporters who cover energy or science will leave this briefing with a better understanding of where the U.S. stands in the global solar energy market and what is needed to make solar energy a viable solution for U.S. energy needs.
