Solar Power Technology

Solar panels convert the sun's light in to usable solar energy using N-type and P-type semiconductor material. The solar energy knocks electrons loose from their atoms, allowing the electrons to flow through the material to produce electricity when sunlight is absorbed by these materials. This process of converting light to electricity is called the photovoltaic (PV) effect. Currently solar panels convert light spectrum and infrared ultraviolet spectrum to usable solar energy. The new technologies of solar power are Solar Hot Water Heating water with solar energy Solar Electricity Using the sun's heat to produce electricity. Passive Solar Heating and Daylighting Using solar energy to heat and light buildings. Solar Process pace Heating and Cooling Industrial and commercial uses of the sun's heat. Commercial concentrating solar power (CSP) plants, also called "solar thermal power stations", were first developed in the 1980s. The 377 MW Ivana Solar Power Facility, located in California's Mojave Desert, is the world’s largest solar thermal power plant project. Other large CSP plants include the Sol nova (150 MW), the Andosol (150 MW), and Entresol Solar Power Station (150 MW), all in Spain. The principal advantage of CSP is the ability to efficiently add thermal storage, allowing the dispatching of electricity over up to a 24-hour period. Since peak electricity demand typically occurs at about 5 pm, many CSP power plants use 3 to 5 hours of thermal storage.
