(full text in English)

Titu-Marius I. B√JENESCU
Solar photovoltaic (PV) power has a particularly promising future. Energy efficiency, many types of renewable energy, carbon capture and storage (CCS), nuclear power and new transport technologies will all require widespread deployment, if we are to reach our greenhouse gas emission goals. Every major country and sector of the economy must be involved. It seems that the technology race is in full swing, with production technology in particular constantly facilitating new developments. A good price-performance ratio is key.
