The energy produced by the sun can be directly transformed into electrical energy through the use of the photovoltaic technology.
The only drawback for the exploitation of this clean, inexhaustible and abundant energy lies in its discontinuity. Less relevant factor for Italy, which is the European country with the highest number of sunny hours.
Capturing the sun light to turn it into clean, safe and eco-friendly energy is the target that the recent regulations have boosted through the creation of the Energy Account.
Achieved goal: in the course of one year only, in fact, the solar sector has grown by over 400%.
The efficiency of photovoltaic cells is constantly improving, too: a positive effect of the increase of the investments in the sector, one of the few that have recorded the employment growth despite the crisis.
