Solar Power Technologies

Solar energy could be harvested by two major solar technologies: photovoltaic (PV) and concentrating solar power technologies (CSP). While PV technology converts the global solar irradiation directly into electrical current, the CSP technologies convert the solar direct normal irradiation into thermal energy that could be utilized in conventional power generation plants. This could be used also as process heat for industrial applications and for cooling purposes. A Brief description about these two major technology categories is to be found below:
