Solar energy is free, clean, and usually available in abundance. However, solar radiation is also less predictable than many kinds of fossil fuel. Researchers have now developed a model that allows a more accurate prediction of hourly solar radiation.
The growing popularity of solar photovoltaic systems across the United States has made it more important to maximize their power input. That's why environmental engineers are working on technologies and methods that will better predict how much power we can actually harness from the sun.
