Solar Photovoltaic Projects in the mainstream power market
Well before the end of this century, solar power will be the world’s dominant energy source, according to renewable energy pioneer, Philip Wolfe. And the coming decade will start the transition to the high growth phase as prices fall and regulatory drivers increase.
This is the first book to focus on the development of solar systems for merchant power delivery into the grid. It is a key reference for those structuring, developing and backing megawatt-scale solar power projects during this exciting stage. It is a manual for those with a commercial, professional, financial, engineering or political interest in the sector, rather than a textbook for specialists or scientists.
Terrestrial solar power applications are still less than fifty years old. The author uses interviews with pioneers in the deployment of utility-scale PV projects to highlight the key issues and describe how we got to where we are, what we have learnt along the way, and where this can lead in the future.
The book is a readable, jargon-free treatise on the project development issues of solar power. This is supported by in-depth analysis of solar power’s policy environment, role, science, economics, applications, history, technology, players, design issues and references.
It includes sector statistics and maps of all known existing and planned utility solar parks over 10MW, as further described here.
