Photovoltaic energy technology is still a young industry and materials are being refined and developed to improve performance and durability, and to upgrade aesthetics for building and other structure integration from military textiles to automotive. This article looks at markets and technology.
CPV International 2013 is only three weeks away, taking place on 21-22 March at the AC Madrid Feria Hotel in Madrid and over 70 of the most influential figures, innovators and hands-on experts have now confirmed to attend.
PV *SOL® Expert, the dynamic simulation program with 3D visualization and detailed shading analysis of PV systems from the Berlin company Valentin Software, is available from the end of February in version 6.0 with the additional working area "cable plan"
Transparent solar panels — think about it for a moment: Sheets of transparent glass or plastic film that also generate electricity. It’s almost the perfect solution for all our energy needs, generating free power from every available surface, window, and computer display. The concept of transparent solar panels isn’t new, of course, but it now looks like they’re finally finding their way to market: Ubiquitous Energy, a startup that was spun off from MIT last year, is developing a technology and patent portfolio and hopes to bring affordable transparent solar panels to market soon. At this point, you might be wondering how transparent solar cells actually work — after all, if it’s transparent, how can it absorb light energy? The simple answer is that light energy comes in many frequencies (colors), but as far as we humans are concerned, it is only the visible wavelengths — from blue, through green and yellow, to red — that really matter. The Sun, however, pumps out a huge amount of infrared light, and some ultraviolet light — both of which are invisible to the human eye, but which can also generate large amounts of electricity if captured by a solar cell.

On-line courses in the Sustainability Education series can be used by LEED Professionals towards receiving credits for USGBC/LEED 3.0 and 4.0 projects. Clients can gain points for using these courses for INTERNAL TRAINING OF THE COMPANIES/OCCUPANTS. For USGBC's LEED® rating professionals, the courses can be reported by LEED® professionals for "general" CEU's. A designated certificate of achievement will be awarded as "GLP" a "Green Leadership Professional, once a Professional completes all 50 courses.
