This book uniquely covers both the physics of photovoltaic (PV) cells and the design of PV systems for real-life applications. From the fundamental principles of semiconductor solar cells; through PV technology (crystalline silicon solar cells; thin-film cells; PV modules); to components, design, deployment and performance of PV systems in use. The book is an invaluable reference for researchers, industrial engineers and designers working in solar energy generation. The book is also ideal for university and third-level physics or engineering courses on solar photovoltaics, with exercises to check students’ understanding and reinforce learning. It is the perfect companion to the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Solar Energy (DelftX, ET.3034TU) presented by co-author Arno Smets. The course is available in English on the nonprofit open source edX.org platform, and in Arabic on edraak.org. Over 100,000 students have already registered for these MOOCs.

Check the app "Grid Carbon" out if you're a geek (or aspire to be one). This is the current situation, not much wind right now but I've seen it producing about 35% of UK energy demand in the past, and Solar about 15%.

Funny that the emphasis is always on the reduction of fossil fuels which are incorrectly called 'coal'. The media seems forget how heavily reliant we are on gas....

Be great if they did an app with widgets, and analogue dials.

Some geo data would be awesome too!

I heard there are huge inrushes in the UK as the evening soaps go on break and everyone puts the kettle on! wonder if you can see that in the graphs lol

I like gridwatch.templar.co.uk/ but yours has nicer looking graphs. Yay renewables, got 5kW at home and I'd love to have more but I've run out of roof space and the missus isn't keen on me pole mounting another 2.5kW hahah but yeah im loving the solar power,

also thanks to OP this should be good reading.
