Daniel T. Schwartz writes in Scientific American about clean energy test beds.
- While many of the technologies that we need to reach net-zero carbon emissions aren’t on the market yet, they are being developed in research labs and clean energy test beds.
- Clean energy test beds are facilities that bring together innovators and scientists to create breakthrough clean energy technologies and are funded by both the private and public sector.
- One such technology is a solar cell that is 30% more efficient than current solar cells, developed by BlueDot Photonics and the University of Washington chemistry labs.
- While clean tech has historically been hamstrung by high costs and completion times, clean energy test beds provide a possible avenue to the rapidly deploying clean technologies.
