Research on solar energy sponsored by the U.S. Research and Development Administration (ERDA), at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, has concentrated on finding and developing techniques that can be made economically competitive with fossil fuels and can be applied by industry on a large scale. The difficulty lies in making solar energy competitive, not in identifying large-scale application. Table 1 suggests the widespread need for large-scale applications.
