Desertec Project to close down I have always been a big critic of the Desertec project which envisaged building huge solar thermal plants in North Africa and transporting that power to Europe. The main reason for my negativity was the massive advancements that solar PV technology has made in comparison to the solar thermal technology […]

Japan¬†is a country where solar energy is flourishing because of its Government support through generous feed in subsidy. Till 2007 Japan was the leader in Solar installations, but the fierce Chinese competition and lack of Government support then, shook its position. Japan solar installation has seen a boom. Japan’s share of global PV system revenue […]

Photovoltaic Module demand has increased by more than 50% each year in the last decade as solar panel costs have gone down sharply by almost 80% in the last 4 years alone as scale and technology have improved.Photovoltaic Modules are a combination of solar cells which generate electricity when light strikes them.Photovoltaic is the name given to this process where electrons are released when photo or light transfer its energy to the solar cells.The following article covers a large amount of literature on Photovoltaic Modules from its costs to selling prices as well as the efficiency of the Photovoltaic Module which affects the Energy Output.There are hundreds of Photovoltaic Module Manufacturers but only a few major ones.There are reviews on the major Photovoltaic Module Suppliers and Market as well.
