Clean power is in great demand. Over the next 25 years solar is expected to be the fastest-growing alternative source of electric energy. Fresh capital is flowing into the sector from governments and capital markets, creating new opportunities for growth and invention. (See: " The Sunshine Economy.")

Al Kaschalk, analyst at Wedbush Morgan Securities, wrote in a client note that solar energy still remains a negligible portion of the U.S. energy consumption portfolio, leaving substantial room for future growth.

He points out that solar energy contributed less than 0.1% of U.S. energy consumption in 2006. Kaschalk doesn't expect this ratio to change much in the near future unless the government kicks in some subsidies.

Solar power is the ultimate alchemy, using what's free to create something valuable. Over the next 25 years solar is expected to be the fastest-growing alternative source of electric energy. But it is complex, expensive magic and has burned many entrepreneurs and investors in the past. With clean power in great demand, and fresh capital coming in from governments and capital markets, the solar economy is again humming with new materials, ideas, designs and business plans. Solar now meets only a 0.1% sliver of our electricity needs, but opportunities for growth and invention, as this year's E-gang members show, are bright.
