OSTI sends solar energy info to public

SunThe sun's heat and light provide an abundant source of energy that can be harnessed in many ways. You can read more and find a wide range of solar energy information through OSTI's Solar Energy Web page. From educational materials to radiation resource information, OSTI has pulled together one-stop access to Department of Energy solar energy resources, as well as a listing of featured documents on solar energy research. DOE has played a major role in solar energy research and development. As a result of solar R&D, the "cost of solar energy has been reduced 100-fold over the past two decades" (from DOE's Making Solar Energy More Affordable). OSTI's Solar Energy page is part of OSTI's DOE R&D Accomplishments Web site. Technical reports on solar energy are available through OSTI's Information Bridge.
