Abstract

In these uncertain times having a clean, secure and definable energy supply will be a key ingredient necessary to provide a platform to underpin and stabilise our financial and economic systems while removing one of the greatest causes of political conflict. The solar energy resource is widespread and can provide more than a thousand fold for our energy needs for the foreseeable future. To effectively harness this energy a number of challenges must be met to overcome shortcomings and inertia including aspects of a technical, social and political nature.
