Imagine a source of energy that is infinitely renewable, nonpolluting, lasts indefinitely, has a low maintenance and operating cost, and could, in principle, be able to satisfy almost all of the energy needs of the world. Such a source is represented by devices that convert solar energy directly into electrical energy. These are called photovoltaics.
