Solar power is the conversion of renewable energy from sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), indirectly using concentrated solar power, or a combination. Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and solar tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic cells convert light into an electric current using the photovoltaic effect.
The most important factors that stimulate the growth of solar power market on the whole are unpredictable fossil fuel prices, need for disassociation of dependence on fossil fuel imports from areas of political volatility, environmental concerns over the greenhouse gas emissions associated with fossil fuel use, government incentives, other support programs making solar power more cost competitive, and shift in consumer preference. There is a high demand for solar energy in most of the residential areas due to its low maintenance costs and the reduction in the electricity bills, which is one of the major factors responsible for the growth of this market. Further, the development of various infrastructure projects across the world and the constantly increasing population worldwide has given rise to the use of solar energy on a large scale, which has resulted in this market's growth.
