Through the Prometheus Institute, a research non-profit in Cambridge, the author is in the process of publishing a book on what he terms the economic inevitability of solar energy, specifically photovoltaic electricity. Relying only on fundamental economic analysis of the key industry drivers, it outlines a re-interpretation of and forecast for the future of energy generation, showing that natural market forces are shifting in favor of distributed, renewable energy. What results is a radically larger role for photovoltaics than is currently forseen as well as an achievable, sustainable, and potentially inevitable path to a cleaner and more secure energy system.
