The article focuses on the Clean Energy Project that was launched by Harvard University scientists that will harness the idle computer power of hundreds of thousands of volunteers in the search for making more efficient and lower-cost solar cells. Researchers hope the free computing power will dramatically increase the speed at which they can screen thousands of organic compounds for electronic properties. The project will later focus on energy storage devices.
