The Clean Energy Project

We are living in the Age of Energy. The fossil fuel based economy of the present must give way to the renewable energy based economy of the future. Getting there is the grandest challenge humanity faces. Chemistry can help meet this challenge by discovering new materials that efficiently harvest solar radiation, store energy for later use, and reconvert the stored energy when needed.

The Clean Energy project uses computational chemistry and the willingness of people to help look for the best molecules possible for: organic photovoltaics to provide inexpensive solar cells, polymers for the membranes used in fuel cells for electricity generation, and how best to assemble the molecules to make those devices. By helping us search combinatorially among thousands of potential systems, you can contribute to this effort.

Use your (MS-Windows) computer's spare CPU cycles to find a better formula for organic solar cells.

The System requirements don't suggest that it works on Macs:

Here we go!
Re: Launch of The Clean Energy Project
For now, the Clean Energy project will only be available for the Windows platform. We have a bit more testing to do for Linux and Mac and expect to have this project available for the Linux and Mac platforms during the week of December 8, 2008. Thank you for your patience.
