Summary and Info
Martin Green, a co-author of Earthscan’s Applied Photovoltaics was one of the winners of the first Zayed Future Energy Prize announced at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi on 19th January 2009. He received the award for his groundbreaking research on the efficiency of photovoltaics over many years. Commenting on the award, Martin Green said “I firmly believe that many of our future energy needs can be addressed by photovoltaic technology. I am confident that this prize will help boost our efforts to accelerate the development, and market entry, of third-generation PV modules”.* A reliable, accessible and comprehensive guide for students of photovoltaic applications, brimming with information and carefully designed to meet the needs of its readers * Features exercises and recommends further reading at the end of each chapter, and provides detailed technical appendices with essential equations, data sources and standardsPhotovoltaics manufacturing and engineering has been growing at an exponential rate, and with this growth comes an increase in the number of people studying the subject. This has resulted in the demand for a reliable, accessible and comprehensive guide for students of photovoltaic (PV) applications and renewable energy engineering.The award-winning authors present a thoroughly considered textbook that is brimming with information and carefully designed to meet the needs of its readers. Along with exercises and recommended further reading at the end of each chapter, the book features a set of detailed technical appendices that provide essential equations, data sources and standards. The book is well illustrated and readable, with an abundance of diagrams and illustrations, and will provide the reader with all the information needed to work with photovoltaics.Related Titles:Understanding Renewable Energy Systems 1-84407-128-6 (2004) Planning and Installing Photovoltaic Systems 1-84407-131-6 (2004) Solar Energy Pocket Reference 1-84407-306-8 (2005)
