61  Abstract Solar energy, an energy obtained from the sun, is the world’s most
abundant and cheapest source of energy available from Nature. It is free and automatically
renewable everyday. In the world over, emphasis has shifted from the use of hydro and

N Melosh ,2012 ,
63  Abstract Global climate imperatives require a worldwide shift away from
greenhouse gasemitting activities such as fossil fuel combustion. Concentrated solar
thermal installations are particularly appealing as they can store a fraction of their power

N Melosh ,2012 ,
63  Abstract Photon Enhanced Thermionic Emission (PETE) is a newly proposed
form of solar energy harvesting which relies upon a combination of quantum and thermal
processes to generate electricity. Unlike standard solar cells which rapidly lose efficiency

M Milligan, BM Hodge, B Kirby ,2012 ,
Abstract In the past several years there has been considerable interest and
effort in assessing wind integration costs (solar integration costs have not been as rigorously
pursued but this is expected to change with increasing solar energy penetration). This
