Photovoltaic Systems and the World

How did photovoltaic systems change the world? For one thing, it made alternative energy an affordable and green solution to almost all consumers. The simple fact of the matter is, relying mostly on fossil fuel to generate power our planet (and beyond) is unwise. With our world even more hungrier than ever for energy, it is smart to broaden our sources to renewable energy. On 2010 alone, there were enough photovoltaic systems (PV) to power 200,000 homes according to a research by Solar Energy Industries Association. They also found out that the solar electric capacity increased by 76 percent in 2012 alone. In a report by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the potential availability of PV in total (summing up all the states) granted 400,000 TWh/year, which is nearly 100 times more than the current power consumption.  This report accounted for urban utility scale, rural utility scale, and, of course, rooftop PV. Studies indicate that with steady, drastic growth in PV installments, the energy supplied by solar energy will increase almost ten times than it is currently. There are numerous solar farms being build, and that have been built, waiting to power many homes and businesses of America. This means greener, cheaper, and cleaner American energy. Beyond America, the most notable solar energy player is Germany. With 9785 MW of PV solar energy capacity, Germany is the clear leader in PVs. The United States is 4th on the list, only having the capacity of 1,650 MW. 2nd on the list is Spain with 3386 MW capacity, and third is Japan with 2633 MW capacity. Germany actually set a goal of using purely renewable energy to power their nation by the year 2050. And beyond Earth, there is the International Space Station. With solar panels that resemble wings of a majestic bird, the ISS is powered directly by the Sun in outer space. These PVs are a bit different from ones used on land, as they are bifacial cells. These are more efficient and operate at lower temperatures than single-sided cells used on Earth by collecting sunlight on one side and light reflected off the Earth on the other.  Fascinating, it is, for something that happens at nanoscales to make an impact that extends to outer-space, literally.
