In f. ew developing countries seperate funding in the field of solar energy R&D was also provided through national and international, organizations. Time has now come when one should. eriously look into the problems and screen, select, adapt, and manage emerging solar energy technology for its use in developing countries.   This book is designed to give the reader a solid footing in the general and basic physics of solar energy, which will be the basis of research and development in new solar engineering technologies in the years to come. Get this from a library! Physics and technology of sustainable energy. [E L Wolf] -- Upper level textbook on the science and technologies needed for renewable energy. It looks at energy transmitted from the sun as radiation through the Earth's atmosphere. The book covers turbine. There different kind of books either online or offline. Personally I prefer online books because they are free and still have tons of helpful information but I'll mention the book I have that have been helpful in the course of my study of PV sola.

The fourth section allows students to investigate the latest developments in solar energy technologies, such as solar thermal energy and solar cooling and OTEC through introductory lectures and their own research. Department of Physics Faculty of Science and Technology, The University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica Kingston 7 Tel: ( then present the physics and technology of energy sources such as wind, water and tidal forces, and solar energy conversion both thermal and photovoltaic, with the various types of so lar cells Author: Manuel Vogel. This text introduces the reader to the physics of photovoltaic solar energy conversion with general considerations applying to all types of cells. Much of the book is devoted to the technology of the different cells, and gives a basis from which the reader should be able to compare the different solar cell technologies and also to design 5/5(8). The book is an invaluable reference for researchers, industrial engineers and designers working in solar energy generation. The book is also ideal for university and third-level physics or engineering courses on solar photovoltaics, with exercises to check students’ understanding and reinforce learning.
