From sun to switch, semiconductors enable the journey of energy

As the popularity of renewable energy sources increases, semiconductors can enable the efficient and safe transportation of energy to more homes, buildings and cities

02 Aug 2022

The world is consuming energy at an unprecedented rate. To help keep up with demand, technology is making renewable energy sources such as wind and solar more viable. In the first half of 2021 alone, renewable energy sources accounted for 92% of new electrical generating capacity in the U.S. with nearly half of those additions coming from solar.1

But how does energy from the sun make it to a light in your house? Part of the answer lies in the hundreds of semiconductors that touch the energy during its journey.

Watch the video above to see the role advanced semiconductors play in efficiently and safely advancing the journey of energy so that more homes, buildings and cities can be powered by the sun.
