Solar Power Market Growth Opportunities

Future of Solar Power: Key Technologies and Drivers for a Solar Future

 "Between 1999 and 2007, the cumulative capacity of solar power grew by 962% to 12,374Mw. Between 2006 and 2007 alone, cumulative capacity grew by 45%..."

 Solar power is on the verge of a major breakthrough in terms of short and mid-term deployment. In the longer term, several analyses have shown that solar energy could, albeit with enormous investment, eventually supply the greater part of global energy needs. Solar cell installation is being driven by incentives in several parts of the world and strong growth is expected to continue.

 The Future of Solar Power report analyses the future of solar power generation. It examines the key technologies and the economics and efficiency of solar power generation systems. It looks specifically at a range off issues affecting the costs, efficiency and take up of solar photovoltaic power generation and solar thermal power generation as well as a brief consideration of other and emerging solar generation technologies.
