The sun provides the earth with as much energy every hour as human civilization uses every year. If the tiniest fraction of that sunlight were to be captured and used in the place of fossil fuels, there would be no need to emit any greenhouse gases from any power plant.

There are many solar/renewable technology research and facilities all over the world. The potential market calls for more research on solar technology commercialization as well as governmental solar/renewable energy policies such as incentive plans.

Potential authors are invited to submit research focusing on new technology commercialization, business management and governmental policies. The goal is to prepare a reference issue of managing and promoting solar/renewable technology.
