Solar energy is the use of solar radiation for practical purposes. Solar technologies are broadly characterized into passive or active systems depending on the way they convert and use solar energy.
- Active solar techniques use conversion devices such as photovoltaic panels, pumps, and fans to convert sunlight into useful output
- Passive solar techniques do not require any devices, rather deal with selecting materials with favourable thermal properties, designing spaces that naturally circulate air, and referencing the position of a building to the Sun
Various solar products and services are offered in the solar industry. These range from solar panels to cables and training to insurance. Each of the links below offer a detailed discussion on each of these segments.
