TAPPING SUN: This aerial photo shows solar photovoltaic modules on a hillside in a village in Chuzhou, in eastern China’s Anhui province on Thursday. Solar panels, which convert sunlight into electricity, are a key player in the fast-growing renewable energy sector, which also includes water- and wind-generated electricity. Unlike energy from fossil fuels such as oil, coal and gas, the generation of electricity by so-called photovoltaic (PV) panels does not release planet-harming carbon dioxide. — AFP
