Solar photovoltaic technology employs another renewable energy source: the sun. Research the growth of the photovoltaic industry by searching the World Wide Web, using the term “solar photovoltaics.” Access the website of BP, www.bp.com, which has made one of the world’s biggest investments in photovoltaics. Discuss the potential for photovoltaics development over the next several decades.

Photovoltaics are limited by the cost to produce wafers to convert sunlight into electricity, and the low efficiencies of systems presently in use. However, their potential is huge, especially as small installations in remote areas where infrastructure to distribute electricity from central power plants is not available. Some experts say “solar thermal” power systems are the solution to these issues.
