Abdul Latif Jameel Energy: Understanding Renewable Energy - Solar Photovoltaic Cells
The sunlight falling on Earth, every day, outshines all other energy sources on the planet. In a single hour, the power from the sun that strikes the Earth is more than the entire world consumes in a year.
In 2018 alone, humans consumed around 167,000 TWh hours of energy, around 80% of which came from fossil fuels. Combating climate change through decarbonizing our economy is one aspect of the most pressing issue facing the world and with sunlight so abundant, how can we harness it all this free energy for a cleaner more sustainable future? Solar Photovoltaic, or Solar PV, technology is one answer. But how does it work?

Abdul Latif Jameel Energy/FRV Solar Grazing at La Jacinta
Solar energy production has gained momentum, not just a sustainable resource but also in its economic benefits. Construction costs decreased 37% between 2013 and 2017. In H1 2019, the levelized cost of utility-scale solar dropped a further 18%. Yet challenges still remain in the operation of large-scale solar plants. The open space they require often means they occupy land traditionally used for agriculture. Solar grazing presents a solution with many environmental and land use benefits.
