Solar energy

  1. 1. Solar panel history In 1839 Alexandre Edmond Becquerel discovered the photovoltaic effect which explains how electricity can be generated from sunlight. He claimed that “shining light on an electrode submerged in a conductive solution would create an electric current.” However, even after much research and development subsequent to the discovery, photovoltaic power continued to be very inefficient and solar cells were used mainly for the purposes of measuring light.
  2. 2. Signs of solar energy on Earth include: The energy of fossil fuels, which originate in the distant past of planet or animal biomass. • Coal • Oil • Natural gas
  3. 3. Solar House #1 of Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States, built in 1939, used Seasonal thermal energy storage for year-round heating
  4. 4. Future of solar energy
