  • CPV solar power system

    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. These are also rather heat sensitive, and the two ...

  • Renewable Heat Incentive to Boost Solar Installations in the UK

    The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which was initially launched in November 2011 for industrial, business and public-sector organizations, is now open to homeowners, private landlords, social landlords, and self-builders. The scheme pays participants to use renewable energy to heat their homes and is expected to boost revenue in the household solar panel installation market while at the same ...


  • Solar Energy Costs and the Struggle for Grid Parity

    The price of manufacturing solar panels has dropped significantly in the past decade, and installation has risen as dramatically as prices have fallen. Yet the cost of solar energy varies from state to state and country to country, why? Even though solar panels are cheap to manufacture, the cost of financing, installing and maintaining a system add to the overall price of the product. ...
