Solar energy is energy created from sunlight, or heat from the sun.
Solar energy technology is the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaic (PV) technology, or indirectly using concentrated solar power (CSP) technology.
Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam.
Photovoltaic technology converts photons of light into electric current using solar cell technology.
Solar energy is the cleanest, most abundant, renewable energy source available.
