Solar Energy

Overview Industry Overview:

Solar power is perhaps the most promising technology pertinent to humanity’s shift to renewable energy sources. This is because more solar energy reaches the earth in a single hour than everyone in the world uses in a year. Solar energy is the most abundant and also the cleanest renewable energy source, and one that is very flexible. In addition to the various processes and implementations, solar energy can easily be stored for use even when the sun has set for the evening.

From photovoltaics to concentrating systems to passive designs, there are an array of available methods to convert sunlight into electricity, heating, or cooling. These methods cover the gamut of energy needs, from powering a single calculator to large city utility-scale power plants. Propelling this technology further are passive building designs, which utilize geographical location and building materials to maximize energy efficiency, so that a minimum amount of solar energy can be employed to maximum effect.

App Common Applications:

  • Photovoltaics (PV)
  • Concentrated solar power (CSP)
  • Concentrated photovoltaics (CPV)
  • Thermal storage
  • Stirling engines
  • Parabolic trough systems
  • Heliostat systems
  • Grid-connection applications
  • Solar Cells: monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, copper indium selenide/sulfide, bifacial, thin-films, light-absorbing dyes, etc.
  • Solar tracking
