"Manhattan Project" necessary to rescue ERCOT and Texas energy programs.

The existing Texas energy categories consist of fossil fuels, nuclear power, wind power and solar power. The four large nuclear reactors seem to be sufficient for Texas since they are prohibitively expensive and extremely dangerous if not managed perfectly.

Wind has its obvious limitations as well.  When there is a high pressure system and heat wave moving through Texas, wind does not generate sufficient power (power drops by approx. 95%)

The fossil fuel sector is both presently necessary and damaging to the Texas climate and economy as well as the global climate and economy.

  In view of the above, a "Manhattan Project" for Texas solar power is necessary. Billions of dollars will be needed to complete this project.  The reduction of fossil fuels that power the Texas grid should be well-coordinated with the introduction of solar power, which includes night-time power storage, so as to eliminate any energy shortage powering utilities or vehicles.

CIGS cells could hit efficiencies of 33%, say Germany scientists.

Researchers have gradually improved the efficiency of CIGS thin-film tech in recent years. But scientists in Germany say the 23% rate achieved thus far is not the end of the story.

As you can see from this list based on Google data (March 2022), many countries are forging ahead to implement renewable electric energy, whereas the U.S.A. is still dwarfed in comparison.  One reason for this is that elected officials in government thwart development of renewable energy because they receive campaign contributions from the oil and gas industry.

Cadmium-free CIGS Photovoltaic technology makes it possible for the U.S.A. to execute a modern day "Manhattan Project" to replace most oil and gas used for fossil fuels.
