    One of the leading companies appears to be an Australian startup, Melbourne-based Solar Space Technologies. The company’s co-founder, John Mankins, literally wrote the book on the subject, The Case for Solar Power.A former physicist at NASA, Mankins is one of the key figures credited with reviving U.S. efforts to build a solar farm in space. Such systems are enormously popular due to the present abundance and cheapness of natural. gas and their high efficiencies. A cutaway of a high-performance gas turbine is shown in Figure One of the largest such combined-cycle co-generation facilities in the United States is a MW plant in Oswego, New York. Its overall efficiency is 54%!   grid-connected systems are becoming more economical, but can be expensive to buy and install; large amounts of land or space are required for utility .

At the end ofPV power amounting to about GW was installed. The dominating cost share of PV power plants, the investment costs, has been decreasing since by an average of about 13 % per year, in total by 75 %, due to technological progress, scaling and learning effects.

Currently, the solar PV is on an all-time high current installed capacity of solar PV is near to 13 GW, which makes only 4% of the total power generated in India.

Government of India is eyeing a mammoth GW of solar capacity by Now, with Photovoltaics: Design and Installation Manual, a world-class solar energy training and But designing, installing and maintaining such systems requires knowledge and training, and there have been few easily accessible, comprehensive guides to the subject/5.
