World solar leader Conergy demystifies cost-efficient green energy and storage for our remote locations
Solar energy cells have achieved enormous efficiency gains in recent years, converting in research a world record 46 per cent of sunlight being generated into electricity.
And even if you can’t buy such advanced photovoltaics off the shelf just yet, there are mighty advances already taking place out in the field where high-efficiency solar arrays are making green energy far more economically sustainable than ever before.
Global clean energy investment rose 16 per cent in the latest year, hitting $US310 billion in 2014, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The rise was boosted by fast-growing solar power, whose costs have plummeted in recent years. Solar attracted more than half of the new investment.
