To what extent is photovoltaic energy used in France today? This film looks at various initiatives in progress. Photovoltaic energy from the sun is not just a pipe dream; combining chemistry and physics, it is a field with great potential, which is already being commercially developed.
This new energy source is obtained by converting light from the sun into electricity in semi-conductor materials like silicon. The end goal is to produce photovoltaic modules cheaply and increase their output so as to promote the widespread use of this renewable energy.
