Comment : Recently the conventional solar cell maker, Sharp, has incorporated a dome fresnel lens above their solar cells to cut costs in half for their 150 watt unit. The dome focuses the solar energy of a large area to a single point thus reducing the amount of solar cell needed per foot of solar irridation. The lens also increases efficency of the collector. If this fresnel technology were to be incorporated with hydrogen solar, it would put the cell over the 10% mark and save all the research costs of further refining their nanocrystaline film. The hydrogen solar's tandem cell with fresnel modification could then be put in development immediately. Hydrogen from the sun.
