Solar Revolution: The Economic Transformation of the Global Energy Industry
T. Bradford 2008 The MIT Press Cambridge
In Solar Revolution, fund manager and former corporate buyout specialist Travis Bradford argues—on the basis of standard business and economic forecasting models—that over the next two decades solar energy will increasingly become the best and cheapest choice for most electricity and energy applications. Solar Revolution outlines the path by which the transition to solar technology and sustainable energy practices will occur. Developments in the photovoltaic (PV) industry over the last ten years have made direct electricity generation from PV cells a cost-effective and feasible energy solution. This book argues that the shift to solar energy is inevitable and will be as transformative as the last century's revolutions in information and communication technologies.
