Solar power is the conversion of the energy from the sun to usable electricity. The most common source of solar power utilizes photovoltaic cells to convert sunlight into electricity. Photovoltaics utilize a semi-conductor to absorb the radiation from the sun, when the semi-conductor absorbs this radiation it emits electrons, which are harnessed as electricity. It is a resource that is not only sustainable for energy consumption, it is indefinitely renewable. Solar power can be used in relatively simple technology to heat water. The use of skylights in home construction can also greatly reduce energy ...view middle of the document...
It analyses the present successes and failures of different forms of international collaboration in this field, and draws lessons for further elaboration of international technology collaboration in addressing climate change.
Meanwhile, according to a scientific literature review conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey and published in the journal BioScience, more peer-reviewed scientific studies of the effects on wildlife of large-scale solar energy developments and operations are needed to adequately assess their impact, especially in the desert southwest.
Local Literature and Study
In Manila, there is a project, completed last December, provides an electricity rationing system of 200 kilowatt-hours per day for houses fitted with solar panels.
At night, residents get their power supply from batteries, which can last for three to four years. The government has been promoting renewable sources of energy like solar energy to lessen the country’s dependence on fossil fuel.
Meanwhile, according to the study of Dr. Joshua M. Pearce of University of the Philippines, under the course titled MY5970, his primary focus is to evaluate current annuity proposals focusing on mostly government retirement programs, military programs, etc to justify that the capital can be invested on solar power plant projects and annuity in this case will far exceed the current value. As a result, it will be beneficial for all parties involved.
