Solar PV Power: A global perspective
Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology has been successfully implemented in the remote regions of India for more than two decades now. It has various end-use applications like lighting, pumping water, and charging battery for multiple uses. However, recently, there has been a growing bias towards the use of PV grid connected power plants. The larger issue here is that of tracing a connection between solar energy and grid connectivity. This book provides an insight into the basic understanding of PV grid power plants from various end-use considerations. It also touches upon the policy, planning, marketing, and financing aspects vis-Ã -vis the performance indicators attained by different countries in the world. Various facets of solar power generation have been explored, which makes this publication an important intervention in the field of solar PV.
