Solar Energy:

Solar energy is the energy that is produced by the sun in the form of heat and light. It is one of the most renewable and readily available source of energy on planet Earth. The fact that it is available in plenty and free and does not belong to anybody makes it one of the most important of the non-conventional sources of energy. Mainly, Solar energy can be used to convert it into heat energy or it can be converted into electricity.

There are three primary technologies by which solar energy is commonly harnessed:
1.Photovoltaic (PV)
2.Solar Heating & Cooling (SHC)
3.Concentrating Solar Power (CSP)

15 latest inventions are here,

1.Artificial Leaf Solar Cell – captures CO2 and Sunlight, produces Fuel
2.Transparent Solar Cells that could power Mobile phones and Skyscrapers
3.Flexible Parylene-based Solar cells as light as a soap bubble
