Photovoltaics News

Photovoltaics (PV) refers to the technology of converting light into electricity using semiconducting materials that exhibit the photovoltaic effect. This process is fundamental to solar panels, which are widely used to generate clean, renewable energy from sunlight. The basic unit of a photovoltaic system is the solar cell, typically made from silicon, which absorbs photons and releases electrons, thereby creating an electric current. Solar cells are assembled into larger modules or panels, which can be installed on rooftops, in large outdoor solar farms, or integrated into building materials for power generation.
