The growing demand of energy has forced researchers to look for cheap alternative sources of energy. Among these cheap energy sources under investigation, photovoltaics is one of them. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has noted declining prices of photovoltaics and estimates solar systems in general to supply 5% of global electricity consumption in 2030. These estimates are likely to rising to 16% by 2050. This can only be achieved by increasing the global production of solar energy to 4,600 gigawatts by 2050. At the same time solar and wind energy is expected to contribute up to 50% of total energy generated. Reduced costs of energy generation and improvements in performance will lead to more penetration of solar energy across the globe. These, coupled with more research, will make solar energy cheaper than fossil fuel in the near future. Using innovative new designs, researchers are continuously working to improve photovoltaic energy systems. This book is geared towards helping researchers both in undergraduate and postgraduate studies with a bias in photovoltaics.
