From the WCG Clean Energy Project at Harvard: The IBM Contribution 

The Clean Energy Project (CEP2) at Harvard University gives us the look into IBM’s contribution to the betterment of Society via World community Grid (WCG).

Watch this short video.

You can visit the WCG web site (link is above), download the BOINC software agent, and attach to the Clean Energy Project. We would love to have you.

From the project:

Mission
The mission of The Clean Energy Project is to find new materials for the next generation of solar cells and later, energy storage devices. By harnessing the immense power of World Community Grid, researchers can calculate the electronic properties of hundreds of thousands of organic materials – thousands of times more than could ever be tested in a lab – and determine which candidates are most promising for developing affordable solar energy technology.
