Description

As the world increasingly focuses on alternatives to the carbon-emitting fossil fuels that we have relied on for over a century, scientists are continually developing more efficient methods to collect the sun, as harnessing solar energy is becoming more and more viable. This program is an excellent introduction to the principles behind solar energy collection and its various usages such as generating electricity, and for heating space and water. It covers what is solar energy; thermal and electrical uses of solar energy; and catches a glimpse of what the future might look like with current developments that are paving the way for a solar future. The program provides an ideal background for students to research and examine further cutting edge case studies that demonstrate how powerful the potential is for everyday use of solar energy in homes, commerce and industry, and in vehicles.
