Oregon State Engineers are developing a new generation of energy storage and production technologies that could shake up the solar power landscape. One induces algae to produce half its weight in clean-burning biofuels, while another could yield inexpensive, flexible rooftop solar panels. A third might power entire cities, and a fourth will store vast amounts of solar-generated power indefinitely at low cost.
