This Guide introduces some basic PV concepts, identifies the PV module size and shape, the manufacturing technology, examines the environmental issues and the energy production, analyzes the installation of PVs in buildings and the inter-related issues of costs and sizing and provides a case study of a preliminary design of a building-integrated PV system.
This report examines in detail the global solar photovoltaic (PV) value chain, Ireland’s strengths within it and opportunities for Irish research and industry to capture value and new business from a growing international solar PV market out to 2030.
This report contains a set of planning policy and development guidance recommendations for utility scale solar photovoltaic schemes in Ireland. These recommendations will inform any future planning and development for utility scale ground mounted solar PV installations.
This report provides an overall RE use from 2000 to 2017, examines Ireland’s progress towards 2020 RE targets with a comparison with the other EU member states, presents data on overall RE use split by electricity, heat, and transport and also by energy source. Also, shows how the use of RE displaces the use of fossil fuels.
