For a few decades in the past, solar power has gone through ups and downs, primarily because of efficiency problems, capital expenditure cost of fully installed systems for residential and large scale applications and the ability of the solar power to be a cost alternative to other alternative energy technologies and traditional electricity generation, transmission and distribution.

The solar power industry has matured over the recent decade with many companies from different parts of the world responding to the ever increasing demand for alternative energy in fast growing economies. A variety of technologies have come to some maturity. It is important to realize that, even in this depressed economic time, the demand for energy exceeds the supply many times, resulting in continued growth for the alternative energy industry. Employment opportunities for engineers and technicians in design, manufacturing, installation, operation and maintenance will continue in the years through the next decade.

The speaker will give an overview of the different solar power technologies and emerging employment opportunities. He will also cover the need for curricular and continuing education and training for the solar industry.
