“America's hope for energy to sustain economic growth beyond the year 2000 rests in large measure on the development of renewable…energy.” – President Jimmy Carter at SERI, May 3, 1978

This is a great occasion and I want to express my deep appreciation to my peers and colleagues in the solar energy field and to the Solar Energy Division of ASME for selecting me to receive the first Yellott Award of the 21st century. In accepting this award I know that it is not given to me alone, but also to all of the outstanding researchers who worked under my guidance in building up the research facilities in solar thermal conversion, storage, thermal control of buildings, direct contact heat transfer, and solar cooling at SERI. In addition to my colleagues at SERI, also the authors and co-editors for the ASME Journal of Solar Energy Engineering...
