Sunlight is the most abundant and reliable source of energy available to humanity. In order to provide a truly widespread primary energy source, solar energy must be harvested, converted, and stored in a cost-effective manner. These three key steps require scientific and technological breakthroughs. Chemistry contributes to this development by creating new materials for capturing sunlight, converting light to electricity, enabling light-driven reactions, or increasing the long-term stability of solar cells.
