This is episode 16 of Disruption: Solar Energy brought to you by SecondSilicon.
Happy New Year to you all and I hope you’ve had a great holiday season. Disruption is back and I’m excited to bring you more fantastic solar energy experts as guests on the podcast for 2014. Today on the podcast I speak with John Perlin. We discuss the history of all aspects of solar energy as told through his book Let it Shine: The 6000 Year Story of Solar Energy. We talk solar architecture, solar thermal, PV, solar cars, a solar museum in the United States, and we discuss whether Alexander Edmond Becquerel’s contribution to photovoltaics is overstated.
