The harnessing of solar energy is not new in fact, development of solar energy dates back more than 100 years, to the middle of the industrial revolution. Solar energy is pollution-free, an important benefit when the cost of removing pollutants from the environment is considered. For example, a typical SWH system will, over its lifetime, displace 10.5 tons of CO2 if replacing a natural gas system, or 71.5 tons if replacing an electric system.

The solar thermal industry is capable of becoming a dynamic, innovative annual business within 20 years, unlocking a new global era of economic, technological and environmental progress. The benefits of solar power are compelling: environmental protection, economic growth, job creation, diversity of fuel supply and rapid deployment, as well as the global potential for technology transfer and innovation. The underlying advantage of solar energy is that the fuel is free, abundant and inexhaustible. The total amount of energy irradiated from the sun to the earth's surface is enough to provide for annual global energy consumption 10,000 times over.

The solid industrial and political commitment to the expansion of the solar thermal power plant industry shows that the current surge of activity in the solar electricity sector is only a foretaste of the potential, massive transformation and expansion over the coming decades.

Aruvian Research analyzes the Global Solar Power Industry in this in-depth research offering. The report begins with an overview of solar power and the various uses of solar power. Technologies associated with solar power such as parabolic trough, central receiver/solar tower, parabolic dish, passive and active technologies are discussed in the report as well as the associated costs of solar power technology. The impact of solar power on the consumer energy industry is also analyzed in the report.

We analyze the global solar photovoltaic industry through an industry overview, benefits of photovoltaics, market profile, market size, regulatory impacts as well as concerns over silicon supply and how it impacts the global solar PV industry.

Marketing and economizing solar power by connecting to the grid is analyzed. We also look at the Western Governor's Association Solar Task Force along with California's Solar Initiative.

Key solar power markets analyzed in this report include Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, development of solar power in the European Union, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey, UK and the US. We also give an overview of solar power in Africa. In total we analyze 20 key markets.

The growth of concentrated solar power has been phenomenal in recent years and we analyze the global market for concentrated solar power in the report. We include an industry overview, industry size, power generation statistics from CSP, key markets and their installed capacities as well as industry investments.

Moving on to the analysis of the major industry players, we analyze the leading 50 players in the industry through a business segment profile, financial analysis and a SWOT analysis. Companies analyzed include players such as First Solar, Aleo Solar, SunPower Corporation, Abengoa Solar, China Sunergy and many others.
