PV is a method of generating electricity through the conversion of solar radiation using semiconductors that exhibit the PV effect. PV power generation uses solar panels composed of several solar cells containing a PV material. Materials presently used for PV include mono-c-Si, poly-c-Si, a-Si, CdTe, and copper indium gallium selenide/sulfide. The conventional way of power generation through fossil fuels is continuously depleting and also causes environmental damage. Therefore, eco-friendly renewable methods of power generation such as PV have become popular over the last decade. PV power is generated by the mono-c-Si method, which is the most efficient and least expensive approach. PV power is a good option because its source, solar energy, is free, and even the maintenance cost is negligible.
The analysts forecast the Solar PV market in Asia to grow at a CAGR of 23.7 percent over the period 2014-2019.
