Thin-film silicon uses about one-hundredth the amount of silicon used by crystalline silicon PV but now that the silicon shortage is over what will keep TF Si'c current 43% market share from dropping?
Japanese solar-module manufacturers shipped a record-high 1.4 gigawatts (GW) in 2009 , galvanized by the election of a new solar-friendly government, and a dramatic up-tick in the domestic rooftop market. Domestic shipments more than doubled to 484 megawatts (MW), even as exports slid a modest 2.4% to 903MW on the back of the weakened European market, according to figures published by the Japanese Photovoltaic Energy Association. The spike in domestic demand has outpaced Japanese firms' ability to keep up, leading to a surge in imports from neighboring countries such as Taiwan.
Veteran of SEIA, National Environmental Trust and Environmental Protection Agency brings more than 20 years of state and federal policy experience to leading national solar power provider
The revolutionary Power-Generating Floor , works by converting physical pressure into electricity and has a wide range of potential applications. Part of the appeal of this device is that it emits no greenhouse gases or other pollutants. It consists of tiles that convert vibrations caused by people or automobiles passing overhead into electricity. Within each roughly 50-centimeter-square tile is a crystalline substance called a piezoelectric element. When outside pressure is placed on these elements, electrical polarization occurs and generates an electric potential in proportion to the amount of force applied. While output varies depending on the number of tiles, two steps by a person weighing 60 kilograms normally generates 0.1 Watts of power.

Interview with Jack Jacobs, Managing Partner of Cleantech Law Partners.
Helioculture: The idea is to create hydrocarbons with a little help from the sun. Sewage: Using microbial fuel cells, sewage can be used in bio-electrochemical systems to create power. Evaporation: Apparently, scientists are working on ways to harness the difference in electrical properties that exist between air and water. Human movement: Could the expanding planetary population actually power itself through movement? Moon: One Russian company, RKK Energiya, thinks that moon mining for Helium-3 could be a possibility by 2020. Source
