This paper – which the authors nicknamed “Solar 101” – teaches the fundamentals of Solar energy. It is packed with current information and virtually everything you need to know about industry basics — simplifying the complex science of solar energy and providing an understanding of grid parity.

Discover how energy efficiency investments can provide up to one-half of the needed greenhouses gas emissions reductions most scientists say are needed between now and the year 2050. Such a gain in energy efficiency would mean reduced greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy bills for consumers and businesses alike. Readers will learn how power is produced with mainstream technologies and how Solar is different from mainstream generation.
