Message from the Editor:
Solar energy has been of great interest to me, since I first taught an elective engineering course on solar engineering. On the basis of what I learned, I designed and built a semi-passive solar heating system for my home. I continue to write about solar energy and solar power.

The Many Uses of Solar Energy

Solar energy already keeps us alive in many ways from powering the growth of all plant life through photosynthesis to driving the water cycle, thus giving us a continuous supply of fresh water. In addition to all of this taking place naturally, there's great promise for much greater use of solar energy active solar heating systemfor a wide range of applications ranging from solar energy systems for heating water or homes to solar energy panels for generating electricity, in most cases replacing fossil fuel use with the use of solar energy.
