Big Red Car here. OK, OK — great day in the ATX, all that stuff. Sheesh!
The world needs a killer use case to really take notice of a new technology or to allow an existing technology to explode.
This is the challenge for bitcoin, as an example. No killer use case. Yet.
The killer use case for the Internet was, arguably, email. I don’t care what you do or where you go on the Internet — email is going with you.
Solar is a great technology. It is literally “free” energy.
Sure, it’s not free because you have to collect it somehow which requires a bit of expertise, space, equipment, and money. But the energy itself is almost free, no?
OK, then you have to have some batteries to store it.
I get all of that.
But, now, there is an emerging technology — the ability to use a coating on glass to generate electricity. It does it in the light spectrum that is not visible.
Don’t take my word for it, study this link.
It could be the killer use case for solar. It could be. Stay tuned.
The killer use case is a real thing and they come along in our life times and this might be one.
