Holographic solar concentrator could cut PV cost

This looks promising. It reduces the amount of expensive silicon cells needed by concentrating sunlight on a small area. -- Jeffrey Goettemoeller
Technology Review: Emerging Technologies and their Impact:
by Prachi Patel-Predd
"Now Prism Solar Technologies of Stone Ridge, NY, has developed a proof-of-concept solar module that uses holograms to concentrate light, possibly cutting the cost of solar modules by as much as 75 percent, making them competitive with electricity generated from fossil fuels."
