The global electrical energy consumption is steadily rising and consequently there is a demand to increase the power generation capacity. A significant percentage of the required capacity increase can be based on renewable energy sources. The need for a cleaner environment and the continuous increase in power demand makes renewable energy production, like solar and wind increasingly interesting energy production and solar energy could be a solution for the ever increasing power demands. One of the major advantages of PV technology is that it has no moving parts therefore, the hardware is very robust, it has long life time and low maintenance requirements and most importantly it is one solution that offers environmentally friendly power generation.
