Report Thread starter 9 years ago 1 This thread is based on an idea me and Hygeia have been working on. The idea is for people that have been through the UCAS system to put up a profile of their application and what the decisions by the respective Unis were.
At a time when photovoltaic PV solar energy — in France and throughout the world — is expanding at an explosive rate unaffected by the financial crisis, I cannot recommend too highly to all technicians and engineers who wish to expand their understanding of PV technology a careful reading of this book by Anne Labouret and Michel Villoz.
These two experts, recognised for some decades for their knowledge of industry and engineering, share their knowledge and experience of manufacturing techniques and the design of many complete systems, both grid connected and stand-alone.
This book reminds us that PV systems, although these two experts may make them appear simple, must comply with rigorous engineering rules if they are to attain the main objective, which is to provide a quality service at an economic price to the user. ADEME has always maintained that the quality of products and services is indispensable to the ongoing development of new sectors such as renewable energy.
Solar energy, in its photovoltaic and thermal forms, will probably be the largest contributor to the energy supply of the planet in the second half of the twenty-first century and beyond — provided that its current massive growth does not generate disillusion among consumers.
I am therefore pleased to underline the fact that the two authors of this book make an important contribution to the consolidation of the solar sector by recalling the strict rules to be followed in PV engineering and technology.
They remind us of another important truth — the vital service that PV energy can bring to the rural areas of developing countries.
In the early years of the PV market in the s and s, developments were concentrated on rural electrification and water pumps for use by communities not on the electric grid. The emergence of grid-connected solar generators in the industrialised countries has meant that the more modest applications for the rural areas of the countries of the South have been neglected.
There are, however, today several hundred million people who now have light, water and health services, thanks to solar PV — and more than a billion and a half human beings could see such benefits in the future.
Even the experts have been surprised by the incredible expansion of this economic sector, which has exceeded the most optimistic forecasts.
There has been dynamic progress at all levels: Figures published by analysts suggest production of 7. The PV arrays installed more than doubled annually, from 2. The European Union largely contributed to this impressive progress: Spain alone, which had only 0.
By the end ofthe European Union had 9. On the production side, Germany again, the leader in European PV industry, was alone responsible for producing 1. There are many reasons for this success. Of course, financial incentives such as the repurchase of PV electricity at favourable rates by electricity companies, subsidised loans and tax credits were very effective, in particular in the sunnier countries — Spain is the perfect example.
But such provisions, although subject to modification by governments, are not new. Intwo important psychological barriers were overcome: When module costs come down, when PV output is high in a sunny climate and systems are optimised, and when low interest rates encourage investment, a PV power generator can today compete with a traditional power station on cost.The key variables in its development model were the rate of population growth and, again, technological change in agriculture.
In general, the participation of the state in this process was considered crucial (complementing the traditional vision of the role of the public sector in infrastructure). A resource site for General Paper, English and student life – essays, guides, articles, world news, tutor listings.

This really extends from the Hun or German peerless (hence uninspectable) hyperspecialist model of education which now seems to overtake the anglohellenistic model of peer reviewed encyclopedic (encyclios paideia) general education championed by Barzun.
The peerless hyperspecialist might as well be a shaman or guru shrouded in mystery.
