Impresssive growth rate of solar industry, but course was so basic that I learned nothing, sadly. Link to the 2014 report doesn't work. Intro seems is an advertisement to take other courses.

The presentation is a good overview of solar energy as well as photovoltaics. it provides both the context from the origin to current methods of harnessing solar energy. The comparison to other energy sources for both present market role and predicted market penetration showed potential but it was unclear whether that was based on incentive's or not.

I like the format and how it simply explains the basic concepts and theories of solar power. The energy reports are also very useful to understand the future of renewable energy types. Great work guys!

The course stands as a good introduction to the Solar Business in general as well as a worthy outlook towards the Solar Market progress, federal incentives, paybacks and benefits.
The course addressed only the US Market and should have negotiated some global profiles as well.
The presentation primarily explained the domestic/small commercial grid connected-type arrangements with a small touch up on the battery storage system. No details are furnished for the different PV panel types in terms of efficiency, applications, installations and factors.

This course is intended for beginners who are intrerested in the very basics of photovoltaics. It is concise in presenting solar concepts and the main elements of a small system. Pros: it is easy to understand and is coupled by some examples of the benefits of solar PV use in the US. Cons: do not expect too much if you are interested in installing a panel on your roof.


Excellent graphic presentation for beginners
