  1. 1. Renewable Energy Systems<br />1<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  2. 2. Renewable technologies are a clear opportunity for countries to establish and reinforce a competitive edge in a highly innovative industrial sector. These technologies are in a position to lead the global effort in reducing emissions from energy systems and carbon footprint. <br />2<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  3. 3. Photovoltaic Energy Systems in Use Today<br />There are essentially two types of solar panel installation systems:<br />Solar electricity panels<br />Solar hot water panels<br />3<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  4. 4. Photovoltaic technology is:<br /><ul><li>Safe, clean, robust
  5. 5. Efficient and scalable
  6. 6. Easy to introduce and implement
  7. 7. Create more jobs</li></ul>4<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />

  9. 9. The European Commission, for instance, strongly endorses the development of the photovoltaic sector in its policy measures, and also in further research.<br />6<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  10. 10. This chart illustrates:<br />Europe is leading the way in use of photovoltaic technology<br />United States is slowly gaining traction in adopting “green technology”<br />Japan is leading the photovoltaic space in Asia<br />Other countries are in the midst of developing policies and guidelines for more widespread adoption of solar technologies<br />7<br />Photovoltaic Market - 2009<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  11. 11. Types of Photovoltaic Solar Energy Systems<br />Grid inter-tied system<br />Off-grid variety<br />8<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  12. 12. Residential Solar PV Systems – Buying Guide<br />Load amount: Choose panels that can support your home appliances and other systems. Conventional PV systems for home range from 75 to 120 watts. <br />9<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  13. 13. Buying Guide Contd…..<br />Cost: Approximately between $3 and $5 per watt.<br />Test: Check durability, quality, and weather-proofing.<br />10<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  14. 14. Components of Off-grid Solar PV Systems<br />Backup generator: Required in emergencies and in situations where you have to sustain without weeks of sunlight.<br />11<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  15. 15. Components Contd…..<br />Inverter: DC -> AC<br />System Meter: Measure Consumption<br />12<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />

  17. 17. Step 1: Arrange the mounts on top of the rafters and pre-drill with a pilot to prevent the rafters from splitting. The rafters are available with a stud finder. Ensure the mounts are arranged in a linear fashion by drawing a straight line manually. <br />14<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  18. 18. Steps Contd….<br />Step 2: Secure the mounts properly with stainless steel bolts.<br />Step 3: Arrange the solar panels in an array, and attach them to the inverter.<br />15<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  19. 19. Americans constitute 5% of the world's population but consume 24% of the world's energy. The average individual daily consumption of water is 159 gallons, while more than half the world's population lives on 25 gallons. 50% of the wetlands, 90% of the northwestern old-growth forests, and 99% of the tall-grass prairie have been destroyed in the last 200 years. <br />16<br />Energy Consumption in USA<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  20. 20. Despite the US being the #1 energy consuming nation:<br /><ul><li>PV technology usage is rapidly increasing
  21. 21. More Americans are committed to keep the environment clean
  22. 22. Depleting green cover and resources have made policy makers look for alternate sources of energy
  23. 23. More money being spent on “Green R&D”</li></ul>17<br />PV Market looks good in the US!<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
  24. 24. Photovoltaic Market Is Exploding in Europe!<br />In the last years the photovoltaic market expanded extensively, especially in Germany, followed by Spain and Italy. In addition, Greece is due to be the next fast-growing market. Several incentives have stimulated the expansion, rendering the photovoltaics industry ready to expand. <br />18<br />Source: Solar Fast Track Blog<br />
