    that lasts a long time. At the forefront of these resources is solar energy. Solar energy is a way of taking the energy from the sun and turning it into electricity that can power a home, car, etc. The key to turning the suns energy into energy we can use is a certain kind of cell called a photovoltaic cell. These cells are instrumental in allowing us to capture the sun's rays and turn them into electricity and other forms of power. Solar power and photovoltaics are relatively new to the science world

The material used for the production of photovoltaic cells are polycrystalline

  • Possibilites of Solar Energy

    2576 Words  | 10 Pages

    Chemical energy is formed through the conversion of sunlight by organisms such as bacteria and plants. It is through this process that food is formed for other organisms. Nature only consumes the amount of energy supplied by the sun. A part of the solar energy consumed by nature (animals, plants and their habitats) is transformed into chemical energy and is sealed off eternally from the atmosphere, stored as biomass. 80% of our current energy requirements are met by fossil fuels such as coal, oil

  • The Future of Solar Technology

    787 Words  | 3 Pages

    The future of solar technology clearly lies away from the expensive rigid structure of extensive silicon crystalline structures, and towards the non-silicon based technologies. Governments and private firms must continue to invest the capital needed to fund research and development in these fields of more flexible and versatile solar cells in order to acheieve higher efficiencies and improve the manufacturing process of these technologies; as currently they remain in their infancy. 3.4 Non Silicon

  • Solar Energy As A Alternative Energy Source

    2941 Words  | 12 Pages

    Introduction The concept of solar energy is not a new one. We have seen it in practice from solar powered calculators, garden lights, watches, and a wide variety of other novelty products. However, the idea of solar energy as a sustainable, renewable form of electricity, is on another level completely. Solar energy is one of the most popular and fastest growing sources of alternative energy not only in the country, but in the world. Solar energy is the conversion of power from the sun to usable

  • Benefits Of Utilization Of Solar Energy

    terms in present-day scientific research. One of the best forms of energy to save our planet is the solar energy. It actually can serve as the best mode of production of energy in current times due to various factors. Firstly, it is infinite in its quantity; our sun is not about to die out anytime soon, and we can harness as much solar energy as possible. Secondly, the process of harnessing of solar energy is quite cost-effective when compared to the process of mining fossil fuels. And lastly, this

    someone who is going to utilize solar panels in their home in order to conserve energy with a renewable source. Solar panels, also known as solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, are becoming even more popular in the United States because society is becoming more involved and active when it comes to energy sustainability and conservation. The solar panel works by using small solar cells in order to detect light and extract electricity from the sun. The solar cell converts solar energy and visible light into
