Solar power in growing pains

by European Energy Review (EER)  (Apr. 27, 2009)

The production of solar cells across the globe is experiencing unprecedented growth. In 2007 production increased by 70%, as opposed to an average of 40% in previous years. Today, the installed worldwide capacity amounts to 10 GigaWatt-peak (GWp). Although this is still only about 10% of installed wind power in the world, the other good news is ...

CPV solar power system

by Power Inverter Co  (Feb. 25, 2014)

There are relatively few CPV applications still pursuing Si cells. The idea was somewhat "hot", no pun intended, when there was a silicon shortage going on, but silicon prices have dropped as new capacity has come online and the only successful CPV concepts being marketed which I know of are based on triple junction Ge/GaAs/InGaP or similar cells. ...

Solar Energy and Power Importance

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Jun. 12, 2014)

Have you ever wondered why solar energy or power is important? You are not alone in this because it is the common question of all. Before we can understand why solar energy is important we should have a good idea of what solar energy is. Solar energy is produced by the sun. It can be harnessed like any other type of energy and used to ...

Solving solar-power issues

Certainly, no one would accept only having electricity during the day, and then only on clear days, if they have a choice. We need energy storage -- batteries. Unfortunately, batteries add a lot of cost and maintenance to the PV system. Currently, however, it's a necessity if you want to be completely independent. One way around the problem is to ...
