Sustainability, a High Quality Good Free of Charge? The primary energy “Solar Radiation” is free of charge. However, on the way down the process chain from solar radiation to the final product, cost starts to accumulate at the interface between nature and technology. The closer this interface is to the final product, the lower the production costs tend to be. The closer it is to the sun, the higher the process efficiency (product/sun) can be.
