Is it time to take solar energy seriously? Many people, from experts to homeowners, think the answer is a definitive yes. "Saved By the Sun" probes how innovative technologies, new business models, increasing financial incentives, and a growing grassroots commitment to solving the climate crisis are driving a renaissance in solar energy around the world. Worldwide, solar energy is expected to be a $50 billion industry within a decade. While some remain skeptical, others see a blazing future through new solar technologies. The program introduces several passionate pioneers, including Sarah Kurtz, one of the forgers of the "multi-junction solar cell,"; Nathan Lewis at Cal Tech, who foresees nanotechnology changing the solar landscape; and one of America's most creative thinkers on energy issues, Amory Lovins, who has a goal of getting the U.S. off fossil fuels by 2040. Is such a goal really possible? Come see the film and decide for yourself!

An ASG-Funded Event.
