Solar Energy Investments.
For anyone interested in solar industry investment here is a list of the related technologies that are moving the field forward. Solar technologies range from concentrated solar thermal power such as dish and towers, to concentrated photovoltaic (PV).
Solar PV technology ranges from silicon solar panels to dye type , organic or concentrated pv. Concentrated pv focuses the suns ray with lenses to increase the solar energy per area on the solar cell which significantly raises the efficiency of energy conversion.
Hybrid technology is quickly being introduced that uses both solar pv and solar thermal to allow much higher efficiencies than either alone.
Energy storage is the holy grail of renewable and as such solar energy. Storage comes in various forms such as water kinetic or pumped storage, pnuematic ( compressed air) , hydraulic, chemical ( such as batteries) , fuel cells, high speed flywheels, thermal molten salt or insulated working fluid.
