Solar Energy presents an introduction to all aspects of solar energy, from photovoltaic devices to active and passive solar thermal energy conversion, giving both a detailed and broad perspective of the field. It is aimed at the beginner involved in solar energy or a related field, or for someone wanting to gain a broader perspective of solar energy technologies.A chapter considering solar radiation, basic principles applied to solar energy, semiconductor physics, and light absorption brings the reader on equal footing with the technology of either solar generated electrical current or useful heat. Details of how a solar cell works and then production of current from a photovoltaic device is discussed. Characterization of a solar cell is examined, allowing one the ability to interpret the current-voltage relation, followed by discussion of parameter extraction from this relation. This information can be used to understand what limits the performance of a given solar cell with the potential to optimize its performance. Applications of solar thermal energy are reviewed in detail from passive applications, for example the solar chimney, to active, such as the solar (power) tower, flat plate water heater, and solar thermal electricity generation. Consistency of analysis between the solar thermal applications is used enabling the reader to fully appreciate similarities and dissimilarities between these technologies. Ultimately, the scientist or engineer can understand existing systems, either photovoltaic or solar thermal devices, and design their own technology given the information in this book.

Michael Mackay's Solar Energy is a useful contribution to the field by combining photovoltaics and solar thermal energy - two subjects not often seen together in one textbook. The topics are explained at an approachable level, making the book a good entry text for a student or a teacher who may wish to understand solar energy conversion from this broader point of view

This book provides an introduction to all aspects of solar energy, from photovoltaic devices to active and passive solar thermal energy conversion.

This book provides an introduction to all aspects of solar energy, from photovoltaic devices to active and passive solar thermal energy conversion. Its main characteristic is that it helps to gain an overview on these topics and at the same time provides some detailed knowledge with emphasis on the quantitative approach. The book deals with both photovoltaics (PV) and solar thermal energy processes. The first chapter explains why it is important to use solar energy, the current energy usage on Earth, and the practical advantages of using PV technologies.

In 2015, Oxford University Press published a book by Michael E. Mackay called Solar Energy: An Introduction. The title is full of valuable insights, one of them being the idea of energy density comparisons. As Mackay writes, quite rightly, besides governmental subsidies and support policies, energy technology have been aided as they develop their inherent technology and become increasingly more efficient, as well as to develop the infrastructure required for widespread use. If any given technology is to succeed in a market that has robust technologies already in place, with an infrastructure.

If humanity is to have a future we need to stop digging stuff from the geosphere and sending combustion products into the atmosphere. Solar energy is the obvious solution. This lucid account provides an engineers perspective to the challenge. MEM sometimes mangles the language, but the data is crystal clear. The search for a solution must focus on cost rather than efficiency.
