Solar Technology Comparison

The latest McKinsey Newsletter featured a link to this well-done interactive feature comparing costs and distilling the features, benefits and other aspects of various solar power technologies.  Coverage includes several flavors of photovoltaic technology (PV), including crystalline wafer-based silicon PV, thin film PV, concentrated PV, and various new emerging PV technologies.  Another section deals with concentrated solar thermal technologies, including parabolic trough, dish/Stirling, and power tower.  Worth a quick look.
