The 2016 edition has been extensively revised to include these new products and highlights the increasing opportunities for solar around the world.”

The global solar market is booming, with forecasts of $75.2 billion in 2016, a 13.7 per cent increase from last year, and nearly double the forecast in 2011. North America is the fastest growing market, but the rest of the world, including China, is poised to catch up. The new, updated version of the Solar Electricity Handbook could hardly come at a more relevant time.

He is currently working on a project to create a new low-cost solar panel that will revolutionize the industry.
