The solar energy industry like most clean energy industries is very much driven by the technology of the solar energy converion devices. The efficiency and cost of a particular solar cell for example is dependant on the science and the choice of materials. Read more A FREE Course On Solar PV Materials Design ›
The price of solar photovoltaic energy has decreased by 99 percent in the last 2o years. Electricity made from new wind farms, is now the cheapest form of electricity in the USA. Solar and wind energy adoption began as small projects and has evolved into larger and larger projects. Read more Can We Fight Climate Change And Grow The Economy? ›
The Next Challenges For The American Solar Power Industry.
In the United States the price of electricity generated from wind power is at an all time low. In fact, other forms of grid power such as natural gas, coal or nuclear generation are all higher in cost than wind in the U.S. Solar energy on the other hand even though the U.S prices have been falling rapidly is still high.
