tvoivozhd---good idea to track Heliovolt to see if their accomplishments 
are equal to their aspirations---a lot of solar cell improvements 
lately, if there is enough money to put them in practice, solar power 
WILL become cost-effective enough to come into general use, not just 
when the grid is twenty miles from your house.

The Next Power

What’s the next big thing in the energy industry? Small power. A 
lucrative new generation of devices and applications now awaits a 
breakthrough in portable-power technology. When it arrives, it will 
unleash a multibillion-dollar wave of consumer products.

The next 18 months will be critical for the micro fuel cell industry, 
forecasters say, as developers struggle to increase energy density and 
reduce prices. If they’re successful, the first fuel-cell-powered 
devices should hit the market in 2008.

The University of Chicago’s Argonne National Laboratory is America’s 
oldest national lab. Scientists there are doing some of the latest work 
in energy research.

Energy: HelioVolt says it’s patented a new manufacturing method that 
will cut solar-cell production costs in half.
