Manufacturers & Services
Photovoltaics (PV) is the
field of technology and research related to the application of solar cells for energy by converting sunlight
directly into electricity. Due to the growing demand for clean sources of energy, the manufacture of solar cells
and photovoltaic arrays has expanded dramatically in recent years. Photovoltaic production has been doubling every
two years, increasing by an average of 48 percent each year since 2002, making it the world’s fastest-growing
energy technology. At the end of 2007, according to preliminary data, cumulative global production was 12,400
megawatts. Roughly 90% of this generating capacity consists of grid-tied electrical systems. Such installations
may be ground-mounted (and sometimes integrated with farming and grazing) or built into the roof or walls of a
building, known as Building Integrated Photovoltaic or BIPV for short.
