The sun, an unlimited source of energy for humanity, provides competitive energy with high potential. Solar energy could account for as much as 16% of total electricity production by 2050 (compared to 1.8% in 2016 – source: International Energy Agency). That’s why we have been investing for several years in solar energy, an inexhaustible energy
SOME call it a zero-carbon schism, others a heresy. The researchers, policymakers and environmentalists united over the need to stop global warming are divided on how to go about it. Many believe that renewable energy, especially wind and solar, has by far the biggest role to play. A dogged few, however, cling to nuclear energy,
Renewable Energy Has More Economic Benefits Than You Know March 10th, 2018 by Jake Richardson This article is part of our “ CleanTechnica Answer Box ” collection. In this collection of articles, we respond to dozens of common anti-cleantech myths. Renewable energy is already cheaper than other energy options in most of the world, but

Solar panels are increasingly being installed by homeowners who are worried by rising electricity costs , and who want a system that both cuts their bills and produces greener energy. We explain what you need to know before installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on your roof. In this buying guide: Video: CHOICE tests solar
Read time: 4 minutes Image source: Chris Meehan The efficiency of the solar panels made for rooftop solar have dramatically increased in efficiency over the past decade. Meaning your rooftop can generate more power for your home than ever before. Those power output increases are driven by increased production of solar panels and better manufacturing
The efficiency is the most commonly used parameter to compare the performance of one solar cell to another. Efficiency is defined as the ratio of energy output from the solar cell to input energy from the sun. In addition to reflecting the performance of the solar cell itself, the efficiency depends on the spectrum and
When it comes to solar projects, the main goal is producing as much energy in as little space as possible. That’s why high-efficiency solar panels thrive in the residential market, where ideal roof space is sometimes limited. While traditional solar panels average around 16 to 17% efficiency, modules labeled “high-efficiency” are at least 19% efficient.
Dust often accumulates on the glass of solar modules – highlighted in this negative image as black dots – which reduces the amount of light admitted to the solar cells Solar cell efficiency refers to the portion of energy in the form of sunlight that can be converted via photovoltaics into electricity. The efficiency of
