Solar thermal technologies are designed to convert incident solar radiation into usable heat. The solar heat conversion process involves the use of specially designed energy collectors, mirrors, lenses and heat exchangers, which would concentrate the sun's radiant energy and transfer it to a carrier fluid.
Solar energy is a clean and abundant source of renewable energy that offers advantages over conventional fossil fuels. Reduces the global carbon footprint and Earth's dependence on fossil fuels, produces fewer emissions, creates green jobs (research, manufacturing, sales, installation and maintenance), offers economic advantages and requires little maintenance.
As a renewable energy source, solar energy plays an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change, which is critical to protecting humans, wildlife and ecosystems. Solar energy can also improve air quality and reduce water use from energy production.
Drawbacks or Disadvantages of Solar Cell ➨ Cannot be used in the absence of light from any source. The other benefit of using solar cells is that they provide a great opportunity to save on your electricity bill, since you don't pay for the energy you generate.
