Power Sources (continued)


Solar radiation is captured and transformed to generate heat or electricity.

It is used through different evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaic solar energy, heliothermic energy, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis.

Although little explored in the world, due to the high cost of implementation, it is a clean source that does not generate pollution or environmental impacts.
