1 Introduction Emerging economies have abundant renewable energy sources, such as solar energy, wind, geothermal, and hydropower as well as non-renewable energy resources, such as petroleum, natural gas, coal, and uranium. However, the production of electricity in both urban and rural areas in

. This study will focus on the pv industry for two reasons. The most important is that renewable energy includes solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy, and geothermal energy. Although solar energy is currently not the largest source of renewable energy, it has long been seen as the clean energy


radiation measurement. His magnum opus was the so- called electric compensating pyrheliometer, a device for measuring the heat content of radiation, for instance to study the energy distribution in spectra. The instrument was launched as a finished product around 1900, rapidly enjoying a widespread use, and

a celebrated paper that “with every doubling of production and shipments of panels, there has been a 20 percent reduction in the cost of panels” (Hunt 2014). That is, solar energy will become increasingly less expensive over time. If it is already competitive with natural gas in some markets, in a
