This is part of a 30-part series called "Game Changers." This special series investigates the most remarkable advancements in science, energy and health — and how they will impact the way we live.
Scientists believe the sector’s share could rise enormously. That’s thanks to the feed-in tariff, new subsidies to fund test-drilling, and official recognition that nuclear’s heyday has passed. In the long term, Ikeda believes Tsuchiyu will become
Federalism—the division of power between federal and state governments—is making the nation’s electrical grid less safe and more vulnerable to attack by thieves as well as by terrorists.

The near-infrared photoactive polymer absorbs more near-infrared light but is less sensitive to visible light, balancing solar cell performance and transparency in the visible wavelength region.
Artificial photosynthesis--the idea that we might be able to create energy and other useful thing from sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide, as plants do--is something of a holy grail for energy and green chemistry researchers.
There are many opportunities for us to say "told you so," as the 2000s wind on. We've been "on the money" about gold and silver going up, about the establishment of an Islamic crescent arc in the Middle East and generally about the elite's phony scar
