The course is an introduction to the photovoltaic (PV) applications in the general mix energetic context dominated by climate warming mitigation. The various uses of solar energy are firstly presented before a short description of the principle of the direct solar photon conversion into electricity (PV). The various PV technologies are reviewed in the current context dominated by crystalline silicon cells. The perspectives of the various technologies are then analysed in terms of R&D investments. From a more scientific point of view the basis of the solar cell operation is presented from the solar spectrum characteristics. The fundamentals of PV conversion are summarized. In particular the various sources of the conversion efficiency limitations are reviewed. The solar PV systems, from cells to grids, are also addressed, with a particular emphasis on the challenges of grid-integration of PV and the development of storage technologies. The environmental and social impacts of PV are compared to the competing energy sources. Generally PV is at advantage as referred to other fossil or renewable sources. Finally the fast evolution of economics and financing of PV is presented together with the current key players, mostly Asian companies....



Great class ! Gave a high level about the photovoltaic but also a lot of details and calculation on how the technology works ! Highly recommend !


I am glad that i completed the course even i am busy and i summed up some knowledge on Photovoltaic and its development and importance in future.

Learned a lot in a very short time.

One speaker has an extremely strong accent, sometimes hard to understand. The subtitles are unfortunately captured from the audio and not the text, therefore they have some mistakes or holes in them.

Some courses are too fast and forget to define some terms, which makes understanding the first time around not always straight forward. However having to find out the missing info and explanation is also a good learning opportunity.

The exercise are very worthwhile as they help tremendously in the understanding. The quizzes are sometimes surprisingly tricky.

I am interested in solar energy, and this course have discussed it in-depth. I was having a hard time in some questions because some are not included in their lessons. The transcript and the subtitles need a little improvement because some are not exact words of the instructor, some are in delay, and some words spoken are labelled 'inaudible'. Overall, I am satisfied with this course since this is my first time. I am looking forward for the growth of photovoltaic solar energy in the future and I am also open for other renewable energy sources, but this in particular is what I fancy.

The course is of great quality. I guess we need a minimum of electricity understanding to well understand or get the information fast, but ono the side studies can help reach the required level. Despite the great support of videos, I however found that there is no improvement or staff suppport and some exercices still have some typing mistakes which is quite confusing, I would have hoped to get more support from the mediators.

This course is an excellent introduction to PV energy. The academic explanations are very clear and complete. At the same time, the worked problems and the exercice allow to really test the of the course and to applicate them in a concrete way. I think there is a mistake in the statement of an exercice (quizz 2 week 2), this has frustated me and I spent several hours to finally succeed in this exercice.

Great course, with really important information, but lacks pdf material to consult and moderators on discussion forums, This last point is particularly important because some Quiz questions aren't perfectly understandable... But the community has been comprehensive and helps you finishing this course.

This course provides me a practical knowledge on photovoltaic system. Global perspective on energy production is briefly introduced. Participant should have a basic to pass this course. To sum up, i like this course.

創建者 Samajge S S


This course gave me a quite brief idea about photovoltaic solar cell. The content of this course is totally upto mark and quite useful for understanding concept of solar energy.

The course was outstanding, I have learnt a lot of things in the course. The only issue I had face during the course was the instructor accent difficult to understand

Es un buen curso con un panorama general muy interesante, podría profundizar un poco sobre el cálculo fotovoltaicos y su pertinencia en general

創建者 Romain d S


Cours bien dispensé mais qui se penche plus sur les aspects techniques, très bien explicités. Ne convient pas à tout le monde.



Try to add more information in the videos of you are asking questions regarding to some formula or phenomenon.

創建者 Alberto J B


Excellent overview on Solar Energy matters and renewables in general, it was really an eye opening experience.



I got some unseen sights of photovoltaics that has cleared all my doubts.

創建者 Romain D


Excellent, would be amazing to have a pdf with all the formulae

創建者 Sardar H P


Quizzes are different from topics and accent isn't clear enough

創建者 Daniel H N D


Some questions have problems and it needs more exercises

創建者 Sourav B


Good course, basics of Photovoltaics are well discussed

創建者 Anirudha B


Maths are not related & no formula sheet was provided.

tough quiz of load factor but completed nice course.

創建者 Hernán V L M


The most dificult part was understand the teacher.



Very well explanation and video content.
