We often mention the importance of solar energy in the development of a Smart city, we will therefore define this energy and explain how it is generated.
Photovoltaic solar energy is a type of renewable electric energy obtained from the solar radiation through devices called photovoltaic cells.
This energy is stored in batteries that then release this energy which is modified from direct current into alternating current, for domestic use.
As we were discussing in the last articles this energy is used to power countless electric devices and houses, and to produce electricity for distribution networks.
The future of Smart cities relies on the use of renewable and non contaminating energies in all homes and public buildings, in order to create a sustainable and environmentally friendly city.
