Solar energy technology is the process of harnessing radiant light and heat from the sun using a range of technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten salt power plants and artificial photosynthesis. As per a Business Insider India article, solar photovoltaic installers are expected to see a 104.9% job growth globally by 2026.
Solar Energy Technology and its Applications is a course that gives a kaleidoscopic overview of different technologies that are relevant to harnessing of solar energy. Starting from the current energy portfolio in the global and Indian context, it gives an updated overview of the solar photovoltaic technology and solar thermal applications like solar power plants, solar ponds and solar cooling, hybrid solar systems and technology for thermal and electrical energy storage. The course also discusses current energy policies and targets.
