The definitive guide to the science of solar energy

You hold in your hands the first, and only, truly comprehensiveguide to the most abundant and most promising source of alternativeenergy—solar power.

In recent years, all major countries in the world have beencalling for an energy revolution. The renewable energy industrywill drive a vigorous expansion of the global economy and createmore "green" jobs. The use of fossil fuels to power our way ofliving is moving toward an inevitable end, with sources of coal,petroleum, and natural gas being fiercely depleted.

Solar energy offers a ubiquitous, inexhaustible, clean, andhighly efficient way of meeting the energy needs of thetwenty-first century. This book is designed to give the reader asolid footing in the general and basic physics of solar energy,which will be the basis of research and development in new solarengineering technologies in the years to come.

As solar technologies like solar cells, solar thermal powergenerators, solar water heaters, solar photochemistry applications,and solar space heating-cooling systems become more and moreprominent, it has become essential that the next generation ofenergy experts—both in academia and industry—have aone-stop resource for learning the basics behind the science,applications, and technologies afforded by solar energy. This bookfills that need by laying the groundwork for the projected rapidexpansion of future solar projects.
