The Energy Problem: What the Helios Project Can Do About It
13 Jun 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Steven Chu
Nobel Prize winner Steven Chu talks about the Helios Project for the 2007 'Science at the Theater' series at Berkeley Repertory Theater in Berkeley, California. He proposes an aggressive research program to transform the existing and future energy systems of the world away from technologies that emit greenhouse gases. Based on scientific evidence, Chu argues that the energy problem is one of the most important issues that science and technology has to solve. The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Helios Project concentrates on renewable fuels such as biofuels, solar technologies such as photovoltaic cells, and the conversion of electricity into chemical storage.
