Quotes

MIT Technology Review says, "Semprius has come up with three key innovations: a cheap, fast way to stack cells, a proprietary way to electrically connect cells, and a new kind of glue for holding the cells together. In its designs, Semprius uses tiny individual solar cells, each just a millimeter across. That reduces costs for cooling and also helps improve efficiency."
"There will be a discrete event or series of events that will change the calculus. I don’t know who, I don’t know how violent.... Let me give you a few examples of how that might play out. You could imagine a scenario in which both Russia and China have prolonged droughts . China decides to exert rights on foreign contracts and gets assertive in Africa. If you start getting instability in large powers with nuclear weapons, that’s not a good day ."
"Stanford has a responsibility as a global citizen to promote sustainability for our planet, and we work intensively to do so through our research, our educational programs and our campus operations" said Stanford President John Hennessy
