**š„Knocking Climate Change Out**

## Energy Generation x Quantum Computing

Everyday we take in **10,320 Quintillion joules **of energy from the sun.

If we were to leverage **0.1% **of that energy, that would be enough energy to power the globe for **2 years**š¦

But we arenāt doing this šš¾ **Solar Panels are only 15% efficient**

The maximum efficiency being 33%, which is because of the material they are made up of:

So no matter how much energy it takes in ā it will only be able to convert 33% of that into usable electricity.

By **designing & simulating new materials** that solar panels could use instead, we could make solar panels significantly more efficient.

Weāve use AI algorithms, & generative design to simulate aircrafts that are cheaper or faster ā so shouldnāt we able to do something similar for materialsā

**No.**

Because materials are significantly more complex ā taking **billions of dollars **and insane amounts of **computational time **to generate a new one.

Materials are made up of particles that follow the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics ā and so using a quantum device>classical computers would be ideal.

Quantum computers leverage quantum mechanics to solve incredibly difficult problems.

For example, if we took a maze & gave it to a classical computer to solve ā it would go through every possible path to find the correct one.

But a quantum computer would take the problem, and be in a **superimposed state** of all the possible paths in the maze, finding the solution significantly faster.
