Meanwhile, in search of greater efficiency and less pollution, some automakers are beginning to look beyond gasoline-powered cars. “Hybrid” cars such as the Toyota Prius, which have both a gasoline engine and an electric motor, have been on sale in the United States since about 2002 and, although they still account for only a tiny share of the auto market, are growing more popular. They can travel between 45 and 60 miles on a gallon of gas. American manufacturers are expected to produce their own hybrids soon, including hybrid SUVs.

As of 1999, 15 states had these. Others offer rebates or tax reductions for such things as installation of solar panels or purchase of gas-electric hybrid or ethanol-using cars. Some states, such as Colorado, allow businesses that violate air-quality standards to reduce their penalties by investing in renewable energy. Those who favor subsidies and other incentives for renewable energy sources say that such support spurs invention and investment in these relatively new technologies and overcomes some of the economic disadvantages caused by the high cost of building plants that use them.

Solar cookers have proved popular in rural parts of some developing countries, where sunlight is plentiful but firewood scarce and electricity nonexistent. Many analysts think that devices like these will remain the chief use of solar energy for some time to come. Solar energy can generate electricity, most commonly by means of solar or photovoltaic cells. Bell Laboratories, in Murray Hill, New Jersey, made the first practical solar cells in 1954, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) used them in spacecraft and satellites.
