The capture and use of solar energy has been growing for many years, but only in recent times have advances in design and manufacture allowed us to see the incorporation of solar energy as a significant player in the renewable energy arena.Solar cells are at the heart of any photovoltaic system and in this book the various types are described and their characteristics reviewed.Going beyond materials, design and function, âSolar Cellsâ also covers their testing, monitoring and calibration thus providing a comprehensive account of current activity in this important field of research and industry.âSolar Cellsâ has been abstracted from the recent âPractical Handbook of Photovoltaicsâ by the same editors (ISBN 185617 3909. 2003: Elsevier)
