Physics seminar presented by P. Craig Taylor, Co-Editor in Chief, Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy and Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of Utah and Colorado School of Mines Research on topics related to renewable energy and sustainability is being driven mainly by attempts to mitigate the effects of climate change. Other drivers will also be discussed. The many challenges facing increased use of renewables to generate electricity or to be used as fuels (for example, hydrogen or biofuels) will be described, and a list of current research topics relating to renewable energy will be presented. Finally, some specific examples of improvements in photovoltaic devices will be described.
