The 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 U.S. Department of Energy solar energy resources.
In addition, you can search for solar energy research at OSTI’s Information Bridge. The U.S. Department of Energy 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.
OSTI's Solar Energy page is part of the Department of Energy R&D Accomplishments site. For additional featured solar information, visit the R&D Nuggets link.
