Abstract

Photovoltaic (PV) solar energy has been growing during the last decade an explosive rate. Last year (2011) the solar cell production amounted to more than 37 GW. It is the energy technology most installed nowadays. The power generated by the 37 GW is similar to the one generated by about 7 nuclear units of 1 GW each. The solar industry is already a huge industry dominated by Asian countries led by China. It is not anymore a promise. It is just a reality.
