Solar Power Market Key Terms

Microinverter

  • Microinverters are compact electronic devices that are installed on individual solar panels, converting DC electricity generated by the panel into AC electricity directly at the source.
  • Unlike traditional string inverters, which are connected to multiple panels, microinverters are designed to be installed on each panel individually.
  • Their adoption has significantly contributed to the widespread adoption of solar power systems, enabling efficient and reliable renewable energy generation.
  • Microinverters offer several advantages:
      • Efficiency: Microinverters optimize energy generation by ensuring each panel operates at its maximum potential.
      • Monitoring: Each panel's performance can be monitored individually, enabling real-time tracking of energy production, system health, and identifying any issues or underperforming panels.
      • Scalability: Microinverter-based systems offer greater scalability and flexibility.
      • Safety: Converting DC to AC at the panel level reduces the risk of electrical hazards.

Thin Film

  • Thin-film solar technology refers to a type of photovoltaic cell that utilizes thin layers of semiconductor materials instead of polysilicon, which is used in traditional crystalline silicon solar panels.
  • Thin-film panels are generally cheaper, more flexible, and perform better in lower light conditions.
  • First Solar (FSLR) is the largest thin-film panel producer, specializing in cadmium telluride (CdTe) thin-film solar modules.

PV Module

  • Photovoltaic (PV) modules are the fundamental building blocks of solar power systems.
  • PV modules comprise an array of interconnected solar cells that convert sunlight into electricity, enabling the generation of renewable energy.
  • Crystalline silicon is the most common material used in solar cell production, though thin-film.

Concentrated Solar

  • A solar power technology that utilizes mirrors or lenses to concentrate sunlight onto a receiver or solar cell to generate heat or electricity.
  • CSP plants can incorporate thermal energy storage, making it a dispatchable (available on-demand) form of solar power.

Solar Tracker

  • Devices used to orient solar panels or arrays towards the sun, optimizing their exposure and energy production throughout the day.
  • These tracking systems enable solar panels to follow the sun's path, maximizing their efficiency and overall power output.
