Abstract

In the process of finding possible solutions to the implications of increasing energy consumption and the negative environmental impacts of fossil fuels, humans can look to the sky to our oldest companion and greatest source of energy, the sun. This documentary examines the science, applications, and shortcomings of using solar power to reduce the need for fossil fuels. Through narrative, image, and a model of a photovoltaic automotive, the benefits, drawbacks, and challenges of solar power are discussed in an academically creative manner.
