There is now global consensus that the new sources of energy have to be renewable and clean to satisfy long term global energy demand without compromising to the issues such as climate change and depletion of fossil fuel. The current dependence on fossil fuels, the need to reduce carbon emissions associated with energy use, and the abundance of sunlight have made solar energy becomes increasingly attractive as alternative source. The current obstacle preventing large scale implementation of solar electricity production is the high price of the photovoltaic (PV) modules due to the expensive semiconductor material and low conversion efficiency. Concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) system is one of the major solutions to lower down the cost of solar electricity. This technology will definitely save a lot of solar electricity cost via replacing the expensive semiconductor material with a low cost reflector or lens. It also indicates that the need of integrating CPV with highly effective solar concentrator will be a new challenge to solar electricity generation in near future.
An international journal of fundamental of renewable energy and application is published by OMICS Group, the well-known open access publisher and a strong supporter of scientific community. OMICS, being one of the international icons has been expanding publication services by acquiring different reputed journals from many prestigious publishers worldwide. It has resulted into a repository of 700+ peer-reviewed journals with the efforts and assistance of 50,000+ editorial board members running smoothly with exceptional quality.
