Solar photovoltaic power generation is becoming increasingly cost effective. It is useful to understand the essential parameters if you are looking to achieve the associated benefits into either a new scheme or to consider retrofit programmes.

This guide highlights global solar resources and the rate of installation growth - at the time of writing, it’s estimated by 2020 solar PV installations could total 403GW. This five minute guide touches lightly on associated costs, global pricing trends and how energy is converted.

The generation of electricity by a solar system can be intermittent due to influence by the time of day and the weather and therefore needs to be balanced with the building’s demand profile. Our guide also touches upon contracting strategies and financial support and incentives.
