Research and Markets has a new report on the Global Adaptive Solar Collectors Market. According to the report, solar power production has risen from 7 GW to 40 GW during the last four years. The report includes information that smaller initiatives such as solar motors for agriculture and solar cars will increase at a faster rate.
China is the leader of the billion dollar Photo voltaic cells. With 37 GW, Germany is the leader in Photovoltaic installations. The primary drawback of solar power remains the upfront cost. Another concern is that solar is an intermittent source. This issue can be resolved by connecting the panels to the grid for storing excess power for later use.
