I just saw this story about solar power development and what’s expected in the next 15 years or so.

Solar Power Grabs Public’s Attention, but Not Money

Some experts say that moving solar energy from niche to
mainstream is unlikely without big breakthroughs.

Seems that a pretty fair percentage of those polled expect solar power to be a significant source of energy in 15 years, but you have to wonder how (or if) that’s going to ever be possible with the current level of investment in solar power research.

I know that solar power technology has come a long way in the last 20 years or so but it’s got a lot farther to go before solar power will be considered economical enough for power companies and governments to invest in large scale solar power generating facilities.  Unfortunately the current rate of investment just isn’t going to get much done.
