(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.
