Terawatt Solar Photovoltaics : Roadblocks and Opportunities Paperback / softback
by Meng Tao
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology series
Solar energy will undoubtedly become a main source of energy in our life by the end of this century, but how big of a role will photovoltaics play in this new energy infrastructure?
Besides cost and efficiency, there are other barriers for current solar cell technologies to become a noticeable source of energy in the future.
Availability of raw materials, energy input, storage of solar electricity, and recycling of dead modules can all prevent or hinder a tangible impact by solar photovoltaics.
This book is intended for readers with minimal technical background and aims to explore not only the fundamentals but also major issues in large-scale deployment of solar photovoltaics.
Thought-provoking ideas to overcoming some of the barriers are discussed.
