The efficiency of solar photovoltaic collectors depends on how accurately solar panels are aligned with the sun. Leica Geosystems’ iCON robot 50 helped the French company Sunseo to install panels of solar fields quickly, accurately and efficiently.
Our society uses immense amounts of energy. As the costs of oil, electricity and gas go up, the advantages of using renewable forms of solar energy are becoming increasingly more important and popular. Capturing solar energy brings enormous, benefits for the environment. If developed and applied properly, it could provide several times more energy than the world currently consumes. At the same time, it can also reduce emissions that cause air pollution, slow down global warming by reducing CO2 combustion and does not produce waste, as nuclear power does. But best of all, it is an unlimited natural resource.
