ten Technologies Shaping The Future Of Solar Power

Solar TechnologyMoving the solar business forward with events centered around the trends, technologies, and research that power the industry. The cost for photovoltaic (PV) technology has been dropping constantly in the past years, creating solar electrical energy an even far more viable solution for these regions. Then we have a two-year shortage of polysilicon, that will cut the provide required to feed the grow of much more silicon based solar panels. IEEE Spectrum’s power, power, and green tech blog, featuring news and analysis about the future of power, climate, and the smart grid. Residential solar energy is generated by property owners who have solar panels installed on their roofs in order to provide power to their homes.

Thin-film production from firms such as Evergreen Solar and Energy Conversion Devices will develop by around 70 percent in 2007, even though polysilicon production will grow by 9 %. On a sunny day this can boost to over 35%, like energy from a million solar panels on homes, buildings and the sides of highways- a lot more solar panels than rest of world combined. Solar power has been applied in quite a few traditional technologies for centuries and has come into widespread use where other power supplies are absent, such as in remote areas and in space. Engineers in the solar power business perform on the machines applied in the manufacturing of solar panels.

As technologies progresses hopefully we will start to see the great and the bad and fill a require not just …
