  1. I was just wondering if the solar energy industry has seen much growth
    in the last 10 years?
    Thanks, Dave

    The photovoltaic is growing quite fast, but I don't have any
    stats on solar thermal.

    "Production of photovoltaic (solar) cells exceeded 390 megawatts in 2001,
    marking the fourth straight year of growth at or above 30 percent" (p. 44).

    The German have the Passiv haus. Which means all house shave to be designed
    with the sun in mind to capture passive solar energy - and other points

    How do you quantify arranging a house to take in more sun. Can't do that in
    sales figures.
