The most immediate impact of photonics technology on Energy supply is with solar systems. Solar systems help us to harness the greatest energy source available to us, the Sun. Electricity generation with solar systems is still significantly more expensive than with traditional fossil fuels or nuclear technology. However, many new technologies are in development offering the potential for greater efficiencies. The use of these energy systems is increasing significantly and it can be said that this is one of the strongest growing areas in the field of photonics.
