SOLAR POWER

Solar Power

Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the sun. It has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar energy technologies include solar heating, solar photovoltaic, solar thermal electricity and solar architecture, which can make considerable contributions to solving some of the most urgent problems the world now faces.

Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favourable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

In 2011, the International Energy Agency said that "the development of affordable, inexhaustible and clean solar energy technologies will have huge longer-term benefits. It will increase countries energy security through reliance on an indigenous, inexhaustible and mostly import-independent resource, enhance sustainability, reduce pollution, lower the costs of mitigating climate change, and keep fossil fuelprices lower than otherwise. These advantages are global. Hence the additional costs of the incentives for early deployment should be considered learning investments. They must be wisely spent and need to be widely shared".

Solar energy is being utilized to generate electricity on smaller scale by setting up massive solar panels and capturing the solar power in India. It is essential to focus on solar power in India with more cost effective and technology that will increase the power generation which can be utilized by the power companies in India. The growth in this sector is very slow as the technology used it outdated and obsolete. We at Negara Infracon hope to provide latest technology and increase the use of Solar Power. Today it seems the need of the hour is to generate solar power to satiate power needs of a fast growing economy. In times to come, it may be the only source of power available.
