Solar Energy Panel @ the UW – April 12th

You are invited to join Ana Mari Cauce, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, and Matt O’Donnell, Frank & Julie Jungers dean of the College of Engineering, as they present: A New Dawn for Solar Energy.

Meeting the demand for clean, low-cost energy in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way is one of the defining issues of our time. Solar power can be a big part of the solution; however, ensuring it is affordable and scalable requires significant scientific and engineering breakthroughs.

Join us and examine this dilemma, explore the potential of solar energy and learn how UW researchers are combining basic scientific research in chemistry and physics with the powerful tools of molecular engineering, advanced materials and device design to meet this monumental challenge.

When: Tuesday, April 12, 2011 from 7-8:30 p.m.
Where: Kane Hall 130, UW Seattle
Cost: Free admission
