From powering homes to providing power for camping or even hot water, solar panels are appearing everywhere.
The latest issue of ReNew: technology for a sustainable future has a comprehensive Solar Panel Buyers Guide with details on warranties, cell types, sizes and price to help you decide which are best for your needs.
Technical editor Lance Turner investigates issues like solar panel construction and wattage, micro-inverters, heat and shading, mounting systems, and what you need to look for in a panel.
The latest ReNew also contains a special feature on energy efficiency, looking at how we can all make a great difference to the environment and energy consumption at the lowest cost.
Articles look at home thermal efficiency, energy auditing and assessors, energy efficiency for renters and smart cooling in the tropics.
