Peter F. Varadi
Peter F. Varadi co-founded Solarex Corporation, USA, in 1973 to develop the utilization of solar cells for terrestrial applications. Solarex was one of the two companies that pioneered this field. By 1983, it became the largest PV Company in the world, when it was sold to AMOCO. Dr. Varadi continued consulting for the European Commission, World Bank, NREL, and other organizations. His book Sun above the Horizon, which describes the meteoric rise of the solar industry, and its sequel, Sun towards High Noon, were published in 2014 and 2017, respectively.
