President Obama Announces $2 Billion for New Green Jobs in Solar Energy Industry

President Obama pledges 2 billion dollars to build solar power plants in three statesAs reported by The Associated Press, in this morning’s weekly radio address President Obama has just announced that almost $2 billion in federal funding for solar energy and green jobs is in the pipeline.  The money will go to construct solar power installations in Arizona, Colorado and Indiana.

The awards were made to Abengoa Solar and Abound Solar Manufacturing.  All together, the projects will create more than 3,600 construction jobs.  The Abound projects alone will also result in more than 1,500 permanent jobs.  But hey – it’s not the meat, it’s the motion: instead of destroying host communities the way that fossil fuel harvesting does, the new solar energy jobs will provide a “trickle-up” boost for local businesses.

Your Blue Jeans May Hold the Key to Cheap Solar Power

Cornell University Researchers develop new method for collecting solar energy from a dye used in blue jeansResearchers at Cornell University have developed a process for building an organic molecular-scale framework that could be used to colletct solar energy.  They did it using phthalocyanines, which are common dyes used in blue jeans and numerous other products.

The researchers came up with a way to assemble the molecules into a precisely structured two-dimensional “solar paper” that is far more flexible, and potentially far cheaper, than conventional solar panels.  Though still a long way from development into actual solar cells, the structure could speed future research along by answering foundational questions about the movement of electrons through organic materials.
