Abundant, clean energy that harnesses the power of the sun via solar panels. Solar energy takes two forms: Solar Photovoltaics (PV, to generate electricity) and Solar Thermal (to produce heat which warms water).
Solar Photovoltaics (PV)
The world’s fastest-growing solar power and energy technology, by 2050 Solar PV is targeted to produce around 11% of global electricity: the equivalent of reducing carbon-based emissions from 253 million 3-bedroom homes.
A Solar PV array creates electrical power by the conversion of sunlight via a slender, semi-conducting silicon membrane cased in plastic or glass. Many solar parks are comprised of hundreds of linked PV panels that will power thousands of homes and businesses.
