My kids love the discovery channel and are homeschooled. I asked for a report on what they learned one day and they talked about the different things being tested right now. One of the things was solar panels that can be installed by a homeowner easily and rather affordably. it's a few years off being ready to buy at your local DIY store according to the show. The paint they are working on would allow you to use your whole house as a solar panel and they estimate it could almost do away with our dependance on fossil fuels, especially if they can use this paint on a few highrise buildings!
One day we could conceivably begin construction in a whole new way that would make any city completely green...if they can paint your house with solar energy storing crystals then your car would be a cinch. Since solar energy isn't dependant on full sun anymore this technology can be used everywhere, even in space. Truly the mind boggles at the applications!
