How can I increase my PV knowhow?
There are two major ways in which you can increase your PV knowhow. The first way is to join a professional course that allows you to learn about the industry. There are several universities and education institutions that offer specialised courses related to solar energy. These courses can range from a few months to a couple of years. You need to choose the course that is most suited to your requirements. You could enrol for one such course and develop your knowledge related to the industry.
Alternatively, you could make use of online learning techniques in order to increase your PV knowhow. Many companies in the solar energy space allow you to access learning material from the comfort of your home. For example, our eAcademy allows you to learn about the industry and its key workings. The eAcademy offers a wide range of resources, including webinars and how-to videos. These resources could help you in increasing your knowledge and becoming an expert in the PV space. This option is extremely convenient and can be accessed from anywhere.
What is sector coupling?
Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind are likely to replace fossil fuels over the next few decades. This change will not only be limited to the field of electricity generation, but will also span other areas such as transportation, manufacturing, and heating. It is a well-known fact that solar energy systems have the ability to capture energy from the sun and store it. However, not many people are aware of the fact that this energy can also be converted and used in other allied sectors. This can be achieved using the right techniques, such as power-to-heat technology, power-to-cool and power-to-gas like hydrogen.
The idea of connecting the energy sector with other allied industries such as heating and transportation is known as sector coupling. This phenomenon is gaining traction around the world. It is becoming quite popular in emerging markets such as South Africa, where electric vehicles are already being powered by solar energy. Sector coupling could prove to be extremely beneficial in such markets, as it could reduce the costs of travel while also preserving the environment.
Using sector coupling technologies, the electricity produced by solar systems can be converted into heat, gas, and liquids. These by-products can then be used to power manufacturing units and large heating plants. Thus, sector coupling has the ability to transform the energy industry as a whole.
